hi i m ankit bhardwaj
i am making a project on accelerometer and i want to connect my adxl 335 to the bread board
sir actually i am using adxl 335 PCBZ
which is very small (4mm x 4mm x 1.45mm LFCSP) and can't be soldered directly.
so how can i connect it with breadboard.
i don't want to use breakout board since i have already purchased the ic.
so kindly help me and give me a solution to the problem

Which AVR are you using?

As this apparently has nothing to do with GCC I'll move thit to AVR Forum (for the tiem being)

Then solder it directly to the compiler using Mega168 as an adapter :lol:

Design your own breakout board and get one made.

Well, i think it is *absolutely* obvious that there is no simple help for you. What should have been obvious for you in the first place, was the size of that chip when you purchased it.

recently i came across an article in a german magazine where they solder tiny chips in a frying pan filled with sand. The sand distributes the heat over the pcb, while the chips are lying on top of the pcb (that is, on the solder side). When the solder melts, you take off the pan, trying not to shake the arrangement too hard, and finally you come up with the finest solder point you've ever seen.

well i have already purchased the ic so i want that i could design it in orcad....or any other software.
and then solder it.
wat will be the best software to work with
and will i able to load libraries of my component in it

Obviously you have solved your soldering problem, since you are already asking the next set of questions. How did you actually solder it?

I'm sorry, but no one here has a ready-made solution to just give to you for free. You'll have to do the engineering work yourself, or see if there someone in your country who is willing to show you how it's done.

When I search "ADXL" here it hits 47 threads (46 and this one). Wonder if any of the other 46 have something that can help you? Report back when you have read all 46 and still have an issue.

Does sparkfun sell a breakout board for an adxl part with the same footprint?

Well, took me 10 seconds to Google Wiki Dead Bug Soldering and then click on this link, where Dave happens to be soldering an LGA packaged accelerometer "Dead Bug Style".

Make sure you don't get the pins backwards!

The solution is to buy a dev. board with that chip on it . I know you want your own design, but you shouldn't try things that you're not ready for .:roll: Do a better job of engineering design RESEARCH and maybe in time you'll be able to do this . Google toaster oven soldering...

WHY did you get a chip that you didn't know how to solder :?: :!:

1) Studio 4.18 build 716 (SP3)
2) WinAvr 20100110
3) PN, all on Doze XP... For Now
A) Avr Dragon ver. 1
B) Avr MKII ISP, 2009 model
C) MKII JTAGICE ver. 1

Perhaps http://www.schmartboard.com/ can
offer some help.

The youtube video posted by DocJC looked
pretty good. Almost makes me want to step out
and try to use some of these small devices.

I'll believe corporations
are people when Texas executes one.
