You know those ZIF sockets we have for DIP chips? Well these are just like that but for SMT parts!

NEW PRODUCT – SMT Test Socket – TSSOP-16: Now you can program and test out your favorite new parts in TSSOP packages. This test sockets is good for any 4.4mm / 0.147″ wide TSSOP/SSOP with up to 20 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 and read the datasheet diagrams carefully – a chip with a body wider than 4.4mm not fit!

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.

In stock and shipping now.

NEW PRODUCT – SMT Test Socket – Medium SOIC-8 (200mil): And you can program and test out your favorite new parts in SOIC-8 or smaller packages. This test socket is good for any SOIC/SOP “Medium” chip in a 200mil wide body that has 8 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. 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.

In stock and shipping now.

Both of these test sockets are high quality, Japanese construction from Yamaichi
