I would like to know if i can make a ic in tssop (or other package) to fit in a breadboard,that only accepts dip packages.Is there any kind of adaptor in the stores that i can purchase or should i try and make my own?

They are not cheap, but you can get them:

You must have pins to plug into the breadboard. Another route is to make an adapter yourself. Just use a board layout program like Eagle and terminate all of the pins to in-line pins which will allow you to plug into your breadboard. This is how I made a PLCC to 40 pin DIP adapter for my programmer.

There is a product called "Surfboards" which are very small pc boards with pins along one edge and various multi purpose patterns etched on them.

You solder your surface mount component to the Surfboard, then you can plug it into any standard type breadboard.

These are not very expensive. Most larger electronic suppliers should have them for sale.

Maybe one of these would work for you.

SOP = Squint Only Periodically

TSSOP = Terribly Small, Soldering Operations Precarious

QFN = Quite Frustrating Now

TQFP = Terrible Quandary Finding Pins

BGA = Better Get Aspirin

SOT –23 = Somewhere On Table, 2 maybe 3 of them

I'm pretty sure those are the BGA type (Ball Grid Array), I don't see any way you could solder those by hand (at least not realistically).

Reflow solder would be my guess as to how those must be soldered (though I am not an expert on that method or BGA chips).

One guy here where I work does some "moonlighting" and has used, with some success, a small toaster oven to reflow solder paste on SMT PCB's. The only trick is to find the right temperature profile.
