Oh and do not attempt to use SMD J201's now . Either they don't exist (MMBFJ201) or (SST201) is overly expensive .

They are available and they are cheap MMBFJ201   0.075  thats cheap digikey
At least on where is near me , on element14 . But i should consider that's 0.075 means SGD$0.15 HMM . I think i'll be better off with SST201's now ... they're still 30 cents whole lot more then a J201

If you can solder a wire to it, you can bread board with it. 
Not my finest photography, but I think it illustrates the point.


OK , i get the point now , the perfboard idea is great . just great .

From my working out  1 spd = about .050  GBP which means you would get 6 mmbfj201's for you dollar, thats good for me but not Singapore. sorry.
Do me a lemon, That's a poor IQ for a glass of water !

I was wrong . The SST201 costs  SGD$1.22

Looks like smd maybe obsolete now too.

Should be fun trying to solder these... oh no I've just burnt a million transistors!

How difficult was it to solder legs onto the fet?

Not really because I tinned the wire first leaving a small amount of solder behind.  Align, add a little heat, done.

If SMD is obsolete , we can't do electronics anymore !
You actually believe such "Education" website's rubbish they constantly write and never get any further ?
EDIT : They are talking about the internals of a CPU .
SMD will remain existant and useful , there's no better mounting technique .

Um, how do we see the transistors on the surface of the CPU dies mad with 32 micro meter technology that's common today?  You and I certainly can't.  People with expensive machines take a wafer covered in the itty bitty transistors and stuff it in a plastic case, and presto, we have something to work with.    

Considering it's Hertz's birthday, it's funny you mention scientists.  The scientists of yesteryear who "didn't know the real world", guys like Hertz who wanted to communicate through the air with stuff you couldn't see, got you things like radio, tubes, your beloved J201, and the CPU that's currently being made with 35 micro meter technology.  Maybe this exact permutation of the single atom transistor isn't practical, but every great idea has to start with a "proof of concept" to get anywhere.

it's 32nano-meter . They are all 28nano-meter now .
I know Hertz did all that , but what about the "scientists" who stay in their lab most of the time ?
They are almost always the ones who bring a concept but never manage to make it real .

My bad, you're right, it is nano.  32 or 28 nm, the fundamental point is still valid, you and I can't see the transistors on that CPU die, but you and I can take a CPU and use it.   Same thing with this single atom transistor.  If it can be developed and practically used, it'll be stuffed in a package and one day you and I can hold a bagazillion transistors in our hand.

What do you think Hertz did? In between teaching, he hung out in his lab and played with stuff until he proved something; that's what scientists do. He never made a product to sell, but yet we have radio today.  So how did that happen?  Someone's got to figure everything out, that's the scientist.  Someone's got to see the science and find a practical application for it, that's the inventor.  Someone's got to figure out how to make it, those are the manufacturing engineers. And someone has to figure out how to sell it, our beloved marketing folk can't be left out.  Very rarely can a single person do all of those things.  I think this line from Hertz wiki entry nicely illustrates the difference between primary research and invention/product development:

Yeahyeah ... Don't forget the EE's ... They make them real .
The reason i replied to him saying what i said was because he said "smd maybe obsolete now"

yeah I know...   :), sorry I should of put a smiley face after that. I just saw it, thought it was cool. It is going of on a tangent though.
