SMT Socket - Wide SOIC-16
Product Images and Video
This socket is good for any SOIC/SOP Wide-body 16 pin chip in a 300mil wide body. Simply flip open the latch, insert the chip, and flip down the latch to secure it in place.
The chip is held securely against gold 'fingers' (no, stop, Mr. Bond! It's not that Goldfinger!) in the socket. The bottom footprint matches the same SOIC footprint so you can solder this onto an existing PCB as long as you have the clearance for the body of the socket
150mil wide chips will not fit! These are designed primarily for flash chips.
