The SMT-1400 board provides an SMT grid that is sized down for convenience similar to the SMT-400. Considering that most surface mount parts have shrunk significantly compared to their through-hole versions, it is natural that they will take up less room. This product addresses the designs that only need a few components.
The 1400 adds solder mask for easier wiring and additional plated through holes for convenient wire routing on both sides of the board. When one must quickly "prototype" a quick fix to an existing larger design and attach it to the larger board or system The SMT-1400 provides another useful platform for this work. The boards are supplied as 3 boards on a panel and easily separated with V scores.
Convenient size for larger or smaller circuit development
Fine pitches are accommodated down to 0.5 mm
Two grid spacings to accommodate a larger number of parts more easily (different grid spacings on each side 0.5 mm and 0.635 mm)
Allows entire design to be done in surface mount on one board independent of package types
