The space around the chip on this particular pcb is free in pin 1 direction, but if I extend the pcb that way, then the next time I need to use it, it will not fit probably haha.. thats why I thought I would try and make it fit in the middle.. althou its probably easier to just make 2 versions of the pcb in that case... one extending towards front and one towards back, and place the atf16v8 there.. hmm need to check if they are isp..I must admit I'd be lazy and just use two dip footprints offset by one... How does the space around the chip look like?
Well, that would be the faster and maybe easier was... just worried it would collide with neighboring components the next time I would like to use it.. but yeah, pcbs are cheap as chips so I might as well take that route and save myself some headache.. I saw that I didnt have SSOP adapter for my programmer also .. hmmI mean with overlapping footprints:
(BTW: I recommend pinsocket-rows instead of a DIP socket, the plastic connecting the two rows collides with the solder points for the other side, so you'd cut it anyway...)
yeah I read that in the datasheet, but wanted to double check with a wizard of high rank before proceedingSounds like a good idea if you want to reuse it for other projects. You shouldn't need to connect inputs to GND, as the 16V8 should have internal pull-ups. (Though I am happy to be corrected if someone has more experience on this.) That way you can manually wire additional connections if necessary.
