Many student PCB requests are for adapter boards to plug non-DIP components into a protoboard. We have some types of these pre-designed. They are either in stock at the Electronics Shop or can be fabricated on request without you having to design them. We can also supply the pin strips to solder into the side holes.
These adapters for common surface mount components are available from the shop.

If you are using a Microchip ICD programmer to program a PIC microcontroller, this adapter allows you to plug the RJ12 cable from the ICD directly into your protoboard for testing. But it will be useful in any situation where you need to connect a 6-pin flat cable to the breadboard.
|RJ12-to-DIP||Available on Request|
This allows breadboard testing of the popular XBee wireless modules from Digi, which have 2mm pin spacing rather than the 2.54mm hole spacing on protoboards.
|Digi XBee Module-to-DIP||Available on Request|
...you might be able to purchase it from Proto-Advantage, Sparkfun, or Bellin Dynamic Systems.
