CNC milling you own breakout boards

It is always a good idea to test your electrical design before sending off a manufactoring file to a PCB supplier.

Here I needed to test a chip that we didn’t have as a though hole component and also testing on the real chip brings value.

So when you need to test a SMD a good way is to either have a SMD to though hole converter board or sometime like here go make your own on the CNC router.
