ZIF Socket 40-Pin 0.6 inch
A ZIF (Zero Insertion Force Socket) allows you to insert and remove chips easily from an existing circuit. These are often used for chip programmers or when you need to test a chip without damaging it. Move the lever up and chips drop right in. Move the lever down to 'latch' the chip in place.
This is a high-quality, easy to use 40 pin ZIF socket that is 0.6 inch wide with gold-plated contacts. Compatible with 0.3 up to 0.6 inch wide ICs up to 40-pins. Makes for easy connecting or programming to many DIP ICs. High conductivity terminals create solid connections. Armature makes it easy to open and close socket.
