I bought a couple of these for a project:
They look nice and chunky in the picture, I should be able to solder that no problem.
Unfortunately, they are only 3mm square.
I was thinking I'd use ordinary network cable wire (solid core) soldered (carefully! and through a magnifying glass) to each land to make legs, which could then be arranged to drop into a DIP chip holder... any better ideas? I'm a bit concerned about cooking the chip, should I go for a mega hot tip to reduce heating times, or a low temp to avoid exceeding the max data sheet temp (260 C)?
