Connect a sensor chip

Hi,

I want to know how to connect this sensor to arduino https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10937. The idea is connect to a protoboard with a cable and do other things if needed. I don't want to weld it, i will do it in the future in a PCB.

I don't know what parts of the chip i need to connect to the proto.

The most practical way to connect a surface-mount IC to an Arduino is to buy it mounted on a breakout board:

But is possible connect without it. Connecting the capacitators on the breadboard an connect the chip with a cable.

The determinator is whether the pins on the chip match up with the board's contact matrix (it probably won't). It will be much simpler to buy a prototyping board like https://www.sparkfun.com/products/7914 and as Johnwasser alluded, mount a breakout board with the chip on it. Then attach to the Arduino.

The chip is 4mm by 4mm and has 28 pins. If you can solder wires to the pins you need then, yes, you can connect the chip by wires to a breadboard.

Just buy a completed module.

Do you know how big 4 millimetres is ?
