NEW PRODUCTS – TSSOP-28, SOIC-28 Wide, SOIC-20 Medium, SOIC-16 Narrow, SOIC-8 Narrow Breakouts

NEW PRODUCT – SMT Test Socket – SOIC-8 Narrow Breakout – You know those ZIF sockets we have for DIP chips? Well these are just like that but for SMT parts! Yeah, that’s right, now you can program and test out your favorite new parts in SOIC Narrow, SOIC Medium, SOIC Wide and, TSSOP packages.

This test socket is good for any SOIC/SOP “Narrow” 8 pin chip in a 150mil wide body. Simply press down on the top, place the chip in carefully and then release to latch the chip in. The chip is held securely against gold ‘fingers’ in the socket. 200mil or wider chips will not fit, but we do have other sockets for medium/wide SOIC chips.

The socket is soldered onto a pair of PCBs that turn it into, essentially, a 16 pin DIP with 0.6″ spacing that can be breadboarded fairly easily. Since the socket is a 16 pin socket that has been sectioned off to be only 8 pin, there are 16 pins in the breadboard, simply use 4 on each side and ignore the other 8 pins – they do provide mechanical stability when plugged into a breadboard.

NEW PRODUCT – SMT Test Socket – SOIC-16 Narrow Breakout – This test socket is good for any SOIC/SOP “Narrow” chip in a 150mil wide body that has 16 pins or fewer.

Simply press down on the top, place the chip in carefully and then release to latch the chip in. The chip is held securely against gold ‘fingers’ in the socket. 200mil or wider chips will not fit, but we do have other sockets for medium/wide SOIC chips.

NEW PRODUCT – SMT Test Socket – SOIC-20 Medium Breakout – This test socket is good for any SOIC/SOP “Medium” chip in a 200mil wide body that has 20 pins or fewer.

Simply press down on the top, place the chip in carefully and then release to latch the chip in. The chip is held securely against gold ‘fingers’ in the socket. 150 or 300mil wide chips will not fit, but we do have other sockets for narrow/wide SOIC chips.

The socket is soldered onto a pair of PCBs that turn it into, essentially, a 20 pin DIP with 0.6″ spacing that can be breadboarded fairly easily.

NEW PRODUCT – SMT Test Socket – SOIC-28 Wide Breakout – This test sockets is good for any wide (300 mil) SOIC/SOP with up to 28 pins.

Simply open the latch, place the chip in carefully and then close the top over it. The chip is held securely against gold ‘fingers’ in the socket.

The socket is soldered onto a pair of PCBs that turn it into, essentially, a 28 pin DIP with 0.6″ spacing that can be breadboarded fairly easily.

NEW PRODUCT – SMT Test Socket – TSSOP-28 Breakout – This test sockets is good for any 4.4mm / 0.147″ wide TSSOP/SSOP with up to 28 pins. Simply press down on the top, place the chip in carefully and then release to latch the chip in.

The chip is held securely against gold ‘fingers’ in the socket. Please note the body of the chip you’re trying to use, for example the FT232RL has a 5.3mm wide body, and will not fit!

The test socket is a high quality, Japanese construction from Yamaichi.
