SMT->DIP Adapter Modules Made with Othermill @othermachine

If you find yourself using any type of mill for home circuit making you’ll likely be reading the blogs and insights of what others have already written on the topic. Bitknitting has this interesting approach to their own “(lack of) skill level,” opting for breakout modules where needed to minimize spacing problems they were having during milling:

Another challenge I have is due to my (lack of) skill level. I was having a low level of success milling chips that had spacing of 10 mils – the smallest spacing recommended. Either the copper was torn, or I could not reflow the chip successfully on what was chiseled out. I plan to get better at this, but for now I broke up the prototype such that some of the chips – and all that have 10 mill spacing between pads – are broken out onto SMT -> DIP adapters.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
