Aries Electronics, an international manufacturer of standard, programmed and custom interconnection products, has introduced a RoHS-compliant version of its SOIC to DIP Correct-A-Chip adapter.
The new adapter offers an easy method of upgrading to an SOIC without changing the PCB layout. Due to its unique manufacturing process, Aries is able to offer the adapter at the lowest price in the market.
The top of the RoHs-compliant adapter accepts SOIC D or SOIC L packages and the bottom is available in DIP pin counts from eight through 28 pins. The adapter is available on 7.62 mm (0.3"), 10.16 mm (0.4") or 15.24 mm (0.6") pitch centers. The suggested PCB hole diameter is 0.71 mm (0.028").
The body is constructed of 1.56 mm (0.062") FR406 or IS410 per IPC 4101A/24/26/28, with one ounce of copper traces on both sides. The pads are finished with ENIG (electroless nickel / immersion gold) and the pins are 360-1/2 hard brass alloy per UNS C36000 ASTM-B16-00 with 10 µ" minimum gold plating per MIL-G-45204 over 100 µ" nickel plating per SAE-AMS-QQ-N-290.
The maximum operating temperature is 200°C (392°F). All tolerances are 0.13 mm (0.005"). All configurations are available in panelized form as well as individual adapters.
Aries will continue to offer the standard non-RoHS compliant version of the adapter for customers who require tin/lead plating. All Aries Correct-A-Chip adapters are available in custom materials, platings, sizes and configurations to suit specific customer applications.
