40-PIN IC Socket


Availability: In Stock

A 40-Pin IC Socket is a component used in electronic circuits to provide a secure and removable connection for integrated circuits (ICs) with 40 pins. Here’s a general description:

1. **Socket Type:**
– 40-Pin IC Sockets are designed to accommodate ICs with 40 pins, providing a standardized connection interface.

2. **Number of Pins:**
– The socket has 40 receptacles or holes to match the pins of the integrated circuit it is designed for.

3. **Material:**
– Typically made of high-quality, durable materials such as heat-resistant plastic or ceramic.

4. **Contact Material:**
– The contacts inside the socket are often made of a conductive material, usually metal, to ensure good electrical connectivity.

5. **Precision:**
– Manufactured with precision to ensure proper alignment of the IC pins with the socket contacts, avoiding misalignment issues.

6. **Dual Wipe Contacts:**
– Many high-quality sockets feature dual wipe contacts, enhancing the reliability of the electrical connection.

7. **Through-Hole Mounting:**
– Designed for through-hole mounting on a printed circuit board (PCB). The socket is soldered onto the PCB to establish a stable connection.

8. **Wide Applicability:**
– Suitable for a variety of ICs with 40 pins, including microcontrollers, memory chips, and other integrated circuits commonly used in electronic projects.

9. **DIP (Dual In-Line Package) Compatibility:**
– The 40-Pin IC Socket is typically used for ICs packaged in a Dual In-Line Package configuration.

10. **Easy Replacement:**
– Provides an easy way to replace or upgrade ICs without desoldering, making it convenient for testing and maintenance.

11. **Versatility:**
– Widely used in prototyping, development, and production of electronic circuits where ICs need to be inserted, removed, or replaced.

12. **Labeling:**
– Some sockets may have labeling or numbering to help identify pin numbers and ensure proper orientation.

13. **Standard Pin Spacing:**
– Follows standard pin spacing to ensure compatibility with a wide range of ICs.

14. **Durable Design:**
– Designed to withstand repeated insertions and removals without a significant degradation in performance.

15. **Socket Locking Mechanism:**
– Some sockets may feature a locking mechanism to securely hold the IC in place.
