    Hello Everyone

    I recently bought some 868MHz transceivers which are supposed to be in the DIP Package. However, on receipt of the order I discovered that I could not fit them into perfboard because the pins are too close together. Are there different DIP standards?

    The transceivers that I bought can be viewed at the following link.

    Is it possible to buy some kind of converter for them or will I have to do some jerry-rigging?

    Many thanks
    Amanda

    Thank you—I have jerry-rigged it using some jumper wires and all works well. A bit messy though but fine for prototyping.

    I didn't realise that there was two standards for a DIP package.

    DIP just means dual inline package, normally up to 22 pins it means 0.3" wide by 0.1" pitch, above 24 pins it means 0.6" wide by 0.1" pitch. But it can be loosely used of connectors which can have numerous other pitches. It always pays to look at the mechanical schematic, especially with surface mount.
