IC Sockets Connector DIP

IC Sockets fall into two distinct categories: Sockets used in equipment production and sockets used in semiconductor test, burn-in emulation, and bread-boarding. IC sockets used in the semiconductor sector are found in device qualification, burn-in, and quantity testing, board-to-board interfaces, and semiconductor development and validation. As with many other connector families, trends in IC socketing include lower profiles, higher density, and increased mechanical life, particularly in test sockets.
