This Arduino Uno is perfect for prototyping circuit using through hole components or adding Schmartboard SMT to DIP adapters to prototype surface mount components with your Arduino project. The through hole grid is Schmartboard's signature offset that allows greater flexibility than standard through hole boards. The board has Pre Routed traces to minimize the use of wire jumpers. It includes all the basic components and a free 170 test point breadboard with an adhesive back. What happens when you take a Schmartboard Through Hole Arduino Mega Shield and bundle it with a Schmartboard SMT to DIP Adapter? You have a Schmartboard Arduino Mega Surface Mount Prototyping Shield Kit. A user solders his component onto the SMT to DIP adapter using Schmartboard's patented "ez" technology, and then places the SMT to DIP onto the Through Hole Schmartboard Ardiuno Shield. This SMT to DIP board is really six boards on one. It contains quantity 2 boards for SOT 23(up to 8 legs), with a .95mm pitch, quantity 2 boards for SOT 323, 353, 363 parts with a .65mm pitch and quantity 2 boards for SC70(up to 6 legs) with a .65 mm pitch. A standard row of 40 headers has been included as a bonus for your convenience.
Once upon a time it was easy to prototype a circuit by hand soldering components on to a prototyping board, using wire wrap techniques or a breadboard. Today, our advanced electronics require the use of small and tight pitched components. It’s made it almost impossible to prototype. Schmartboard, and only Schmartboard, has solved this conundrum. Never before has it been so easy to hand solder surface mount components. Only Schmartboard has a patented technology that makes this possible. "Schmartboard|ez" makes it easy to solder SOIC, QFP, QFN and other component packages with pitches as small as .4mm. If you want to use surfacemount on Arduino, Schmartboard is your only option.
