RE: [N8VEM-S100:5924] SOIC Packages For S100 Boards - Survey Question

Happy New Year All


Not to put down the great merits of SMT, which is great for final production of a debugged product-

but my considered vote is for thru-hole. Much easier to test, fix bugs, and add new features.


But surely there is also a place for SMT on the S100 board. Perhaps we could add header pins for use

in debugging critical points around these chips when they are employed?


Thank you for the opportunity to cast a vote. S100 is a great system for experimenting with computers!

I'm curious how you guys feel about using SOIC chips
instead of the traditional DIP. Yes they are a bit more
difficult to solder up and don't have a socket for easy

I was wanting to add additional chips and a 10 position DIP
switch to the FP mini design. However there is just not enough
room. I may be able to squeeze them in but it would be very tight
and fear there may be no room for traces.
