A 48 LQFP to DIP adapter PCB

I have been looking at prototyping with some ARM Cortex M4 chips, and many of them use a 48 pin LQFP packaging. Sadly, I haven't been able to find a decent 48 LQFP to DIP adapter PCB in India. The only one I saw was expensive and designed in a crazy way (4 sets of orthogonal pins) which made it useless for breadboard prototyping. So I decide to create one of my own.

Here are the EAGLE design files:

I have also uploaded the Gerbers to OSHPark so you can order it directly from them: https://oshpark.com/shared_projects/E5GrRBgq

I plan to place an order myself from OSHPark and will update this post with my results.

Hope someone finds this useful. :-)
