There are inexpensive SMT to through-hole adapters available. While
I wouldn't trust myself to carefully hand-solder a whole board full
of SMT, the adpaters are fairly easy to do.
Can one still get CPLDs in PLCC? Sockets for those are still throug-
hole. Would one be large enough?
5 volt logic also seems to be poised to go the way of through-hole
But sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
