# SC16IS740IPW alternative - want DIP housing [closed]

I am working on Infrared receiver based on Vishay's TFBS4711 and I've added SC16IS740 Single UART with I2C-bus/SPI interface for simplyfing communication with Vishay's IR transciever. Now, I am working on this subproject in Altium, and therefore I've varianted the PCB to through-hole and smd variant (for the sake of learning Altium and testing purposes of PCB once it is finished - through-hole variant will be used) and I cannot find alternative to SC16IS740, which resides in DIP/DIL housing. I've been searching on internet for about a week, without results, can someone help me.

P.S.: I am aware this is rather stupid question on the verge of downvoting, but I am getting simply desperate!

• If the actual question is about finding an alternative for the SC16IS740, you should remove all the other clutter to improve your chances for getting a response. – Rev1.0 Aug 22 '18 at 9:56
• What Rev1.0 said. You could also use a breakout board for the TSSOP variant and use that as a fake DIP housing. – Arsenal Aug 25 '18 at 9:25
