Yeah, I've run into the stark fact that most of the chips are SMDs too. So
that would be okay if I could get the evaluation board. But I would prefer
that the chip was 8-pin DIP, since it will easily fit into a flashlight.
But the problem is that it's hard to get those surface mount inductors, and
even harder to work with them if you need to unwind a few turns.
