18 Pin IC Socket

IC sockets are generally for preventing damage to IC's from soldering and while testing multiple circuits.These are made from Black Thermoplastic and tin-plated alloy contacts. One end is notched to aid in identification. They can be mounted end to end to suit longer IC's. Using IC sockets is advisable on boards with point to point wiring because replacing a defective IC is time consuming and can possibly damage your prototype board. The use of an IC socket is inexpensive compared to the time and effort required to replace an IC chip. IC sockets also reduce the possibility of damaging the board when swapping out IC's.
