Chip Sockets

Usually when replacing ICs it's more desirable to fit them via sockets - here some DIL sockets suitable for the chips used in the C64 and Spectrum.

Turned Pin 24 pin IC socket

24-pin "Turned Pin" IC socket

Turned pin sockets are useful for salvaging desoldered ICs or chips that have broken legs as their pins are rigid and the recepticles grip uneven chip legs well (a wire - or solder -  can be used to link a short pin stub to the socket hole if necessary). They also present clean, undamaged pins to normal DIL sockets which means they make a reliable connection and are less likely to damage the socket upon removal. Of course, they can simply be used as a more robust alternative to normal DIL sockets, though extra care should be taken to ensure pins are aligned when inserting chips.

  • This socket has 24 pins (suitable for C64 breadbin ROMs etc)
