Surface mount on perf board | 1 September, 1998

How would you mount a surface mount chip onto Perf board? I am doing a project for school and one of the chips is a surface mount, but everything else fits in Perf board. Any suggestions? Thanks

Thanks Matt- Find some fairly stiff wire, the correct gauge to fit in the perf board, and solder the wire to the leads of the component you have...and thusly, you wind up with a through hole component. or... Find a few Stick pins(as many as you have leads) that will hold themselves in the perf board, make sure the heads of the pins are about the same size as the leads of the component...press them into the perf board with equal spacing so they will lay directly beneath the leads of the component....You have now just created yourself a set of surface mount pads for your component... Or.... go to a place like R---o S---k and buy a Surface mount project PCB...solder your component onto this and wire it into your perf board. hope this helps... -Ben

Thanks Matt: Here's one way to do it: 1 Get a hot glue glue and glue sticks at the hobby store. 2 Decide on the desired locations for the componets. 3 Glue your components to your board up-side down. 4 Solder wires #32 to the components and the interconnect locations. 5 Plug it in and "smoke" all the sample components that you worked so dilegently scrounged. 6 Realize that the interconnections are all wrong, because you forgot that the true "pin 1" became a mirror image of where you soldered to after you flipped the componets for mounting. Good luck Dave F
