SENTRY Universal SOIC Adapter



The SENTRY Universal SOIC adapter is designed to accomodate a range of SOIC packages whilst keeping the exchange of adapters to a minimum. With the use of only one adapter, users can test devices with up to 44 pins without bending or otherwise damaging the legs, since no force is required to either insert or remove the component from the socket. An optional device lifter for easy package removal is also available.


The Universal SOIC adapter accepts SOIC Gull-wing and J-Pb devices, up to 44 pins on 0.050" (1.27 mm) Pb pitch, body widths from 0.150" to 0.6" (3.81mm to 15.24mm).
