Is the chip you are looking to prototype with only available in a SMD pinout? This MSOP-8 breakout allows for a single MSOP-8 chip to be used on a solderless breadboard while taking up the minimum amount of breadboard space possible. Just solder your chip to the board and solder on some headers and you are good to go!
- Occupies the same space as a DIP-8 on a breadboard
- MSOP-8 footprint
