Hi Freaks,
I have been getting some free samples for some GP IC's but the problem is most of them are in packages other than DIP's so I can't use the old fashioned, good ole boy breadboard. Have you guys come across any breadboards that will accomodate packages other than DIP's without having to solder them?
Thanks.

What I would do is get some adaptor boards. These things have pads on the top side and pins on the back. Problem is that there are so many package sizes and you do still need to solder, once.

For a few packages, there are "sockets" but they tend to be VERY expensive.

That's a good suggestion Jim.

Any links/photos of the adapter boards you mention?
