Your basic SOIC break out boards. What's the difference? The 8 Pin board is TINY. And you can't beat the price! These are custom PCB boards that interface standard JEDEC SOIC devices to standard .1" headers.
This board has a standard SOIC-8 footprint with a layout that fits all standard JEDEC SOIC-8 devices.
40 Pin break-away headers are perfect for use with these custom PCBs. Machine pin headers may be a better option for IC sockets.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.

This is a good PCB, good quality and clean. This PCB would be smaller and works better for me if the SOIC footprint moves in between the DIP foot print. Thanks, Ron

They cost about 3 times what I expected to pay, and then I had to go out and buy pins so that I could insert the adapter into my prototyping board.
once attached to adapter, the soic device is now breadboard friendly.
The pads for the SOIC are long so easy to solder even if the chip isn't perfectly straight.
