I’ve been meaning to try the new cortex m0 chips by atmel but was put off by the high programmer price, fortunately, they now sell a bare version known as atatmel-ice-pcba with no case or cables. So after the initial shock of how small the cortex debug connector is I set off to find a cheap way to break this out to 0.1″ headers.

Fortunately a soic chip has the same footprint as the SMD variant of the mating connector. Flicking through the CPC site to find anything 1.27mm (50mil) I found some soic to dip adapters, after checking the data sheets to confirm it would work I made the order
