Whats the old saying … Measure twice, cut once ?

You know how I show images of me laying out components on colour print outs of my PCBs to check they fit ?

I broke my own rule and it bit me !

The OpAmp footprints on the PCB are TSSOP14 but the devices I bought are SOIC14 😦

    Ugh. That bites me every so often too. Latest: batch of my sharp sensor i2c converters with the wrong QFN footprint. Delayed me two weeks 😦
    Another time: soic part. Soic footprint. Different widths! 0.6 vs 0.3 /facepalm/
