Dose any one know if any companies make a dip accelerometer.

I think Freescale used to, I remember attempting to salvage a dip accelerometer a while back but I don't remember who it was from. I'm ashamed to say that the desoldering operation was a failure, as I was just learning then, so I wound up tossing it. A quick spin through digikey and it looks like they're all ultracompact smd footprints nowadays. :(

not to my knowledge...

sparkfun offers a wide variety in prototyping friendly form. link

I personally have never seen one. Digikey has carried LCC-8 accelerometers which you can hand solder, although they are kind of a pain.

Analog Devices has a nice selection of accelerometers.  Check them out.

Realize that accelerometres are being put in these special packages for mounting considerations (a DIP in a socket isn't fixed and isn't levelled) and also because they are quite modern technology to work with. Your best bet would be a prototype extension, but don't expect the best level of accuracy because of small variations you will get from the connection headers.

However, if you got a very steady hand (or don't drink coffee before you start soldering) you could try to glue the IC properly on a board, upside down and then solder each wire to the leadless pin. It's not ideal, not sturdy , not proffesional, and maybe same functional as the prototyping solutions, but it might work for simple purposes so you can use every type of chip you want.

The leveling of a DIP part isn't as important as you'd think.

What exactly are you trying to do? If space is unimportant, you could always repurpose a Wii Nunchuck. They be cheap as well.

why the hassle with branding? here is alot http://cgi.ebay.com.my/3-Axis-low-g-Accelerometer-MMA7260-prototype-PCB-/250727472307?pt=UK_BOI_Industrial_Automation_Control_ET&hash=item3a60859cb3 my main point is not the specific brand, but the adapter.
