New Product Ideas / SOIC/QFN/MLF Breakout Shield
« on: October 09, 2013, 10:34:44 PM »
It would be really useful to have a shield(s) that you could solder a small surface-mount part to.  Definitely for advanced users, since reflow would be difficult with the plastic connector on the bottom.

I envision a surface mount footprint on the top, with through-hole pins corresponding to the pins on the chip, then an outer ring of pins to breakout the 'duino.  high density headers could then be soldered in to jumper the device's pins to the 'duino pins.

I had built a watch with a Seeduino Film, which has an OLED shield.  I'd like to try to do it over again, this time using the tinyduino.  The OLED has the disadvantage of always drawing current while it's on, so I was thinking I'd try the transflective LCD that the Pebble uses, though perhaps a smaller version since there won't be any graphics anyway :-)
BLE would be essential too, perhaps one of the TI chips.

Anyway, my design is over at https://github.com/rmd6502/Arduino-Watch, you can see it's been a while since I played with it at all...
