Instead of paying the few dollars for PCBs to accommodate these SMT devices, I gathered some materials and attempted to make my own proto boards. These were sourced originally for my cat tracker project. They have a decent square trace that accommodates 0805 SMT devices, and the FR4 isn’t difficult to cut through.
Although my soldering skills improved considerably with soldering the 30AWG winding wire to these TSOP and SOIC gull wing feet, ultimately the connection was not reliable enough, and led to some frustration in getting my SPV1040 solar IC up and running. Ultimately I located a cheap SIP proto board for the solar IC, but that is the subject of another post.
