Thru hole DIP I.C. to convert in SMT | 31 October, 2001

We need to convert 150 large 28 pin DIP I.C. for SMT assembly. We mean, bending the leads at 90 degrees apart. Does someone knows where we can go for that ?

A couple of things: * Don�t do it. Securing both the plastic case and the lead to prevent breaking the case seal is very difficult to do while you reform the lead. Just resell the parts and buy the correct parts. * If you will not listen and insist on using these parts, mount the part on a daughter board [ie, Emulation Technology, Interconnect Systems, etc] * If you are very obstinate, are a glutton for punishment, and want to do this yourself; try: Knight Tool 978-373-1807 Bill Einhorn, Fancort 800-554-9773 Chuck Bowman, Dana Design 707.778.3113 fax 3190, Precision Technologies Santa Clara, CA Topline, SESA Santa Clara CA * If you are very obstinate, are a glutton for punishment, and want to blame poor judgment on someone else; try: Corfin 603-893-9900, Six Sigma (408)526-1350 x 1A
