Aries SSOP-to SOWIC Correct-A-Chip® Adapters Now Available In 28-Pin Version
Frenchtown, NJ, September 2002 -- Aries Electronics, Inc. has expanded its line of Correct-A-Chip® adapters that allow new SSOP devices to be used on boards designed for older SOWIC packages, without board rework or redesign. The adapters are now available in a new 28-pin version (part # 28-555000-00).
The SSOP-to-SOWIC adapters are also available in a 20-pin version (part # 20-555000-00), with other popular pin counts, including 14-, 16- and 24-pin versions, currently under development.
The 0.65 mm pitch SSOP package can be either hand-soldered or attached by standard SMT soldering techniques on the adapter's topside. The completed subassembly can then be pick-and-placed and reflow soldered to the target PCB using the same methods. Aries also provides a complete SSOP device-to-adapter mounting service as an alternative to soldering devices individually.
The new Aries Correct-A-Chip adapters have an operating temperature range of -55°C to 125°C (-67°F to 257°F). Pins are hardened brass alloy with tin-lead plating.
Pricing for a 28-pin SSOP-to-SOWIC adapter starts at $9.00 each in quantities of 100-499. Delivery is 3-4 weeks ARO.
