SOIC-16 - SMD Test Socket


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-16 or smaller packages. 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.
