SURFBOARDS FOR SMT DISCRETES
MODELS 6004, 6006, 6007, 6008, 6010, and 6012
GENERAL PURPOSE FOIL PATTERNS ACCEPT A VARIETY OF 2 AND 3 TERMINAL DEVICES
BUILD SIMPLE COMPONENT ARRAYS OR
FUNCTIONAL CIRCUIT ELEMENTS
As the above circuit assemblies demonstrate, Surfboards can be used to build circuits with a wide range of devices. The deceptively simple pattern of the 6000 group offers many circuit building options. Simple modifications extend versatility (see below).
3 TERMINAL DEVICE
2 TERMINAL DEVICE
Top foil and vertical foils create 3 terminal mounting zones than can accept SOT-23 packages, Leds, 3-4 mm Trimmers, and many other 3 terminal devices. Vertical foils accept 0603, 0805, 1206, 1210, Mini-Melf, smaller electrolytic and tantalums, inductors, and other devices. Larger devices can be straddle mounted across zones.
Simple FOIL MODIFICATIONS can add zones, reconfigure connection arrangement, or create zones for 4 terminal devices such as Crystals, clocks, Relays,Microphones, semiconductors or other devices.
Please see the HOW - TO page for an index of hints, suggestions, and recommendations for using Surfboards.
