||Excellent quality and very useful.
|I buy a lot of ICs in bulk. Op-Amps, 555 timers, onto-isolators, etc. I have made test circuits to weed out bad chips and test/grade the good ones. These ZIF sockets allow me to quickly go through a batch of new components. I also collect germanium transistors and diodes for home-brew guitar pedals. I use these sockets to test for hfe and junction voltage drops to match them up. They also allow me to quickly swap out different components in a circuit to determine what sounds best. When you have a lot of components to test, nothing beats ZIF sockets!|
