What's the cradle that holds the atmega on an Arduino called

by Cole on Sun Aug 08, 2010 2:38 pm

I want to interface a shift registor onto some perfboard, but I don't want to solder it directly. I'm looking for a cradle type thing that the Arduino uses to hold the atmega, but I don't know what it's called so I can't find it. What's the name for that part?

That would be a DIP (Dual In-line Package) socket. Used that as the product search on Jameco.com and got almost 200 hits. Enjoy!

What's the difference between the two? They both look the same in my google search... I guess I'll use an IC socket because Ladyada said it was what I was looking for. :D

A DIP socket is a type of IC (Integrated Circuit) socket. You can also have SIP (Single In-line Package) sockets that only have one row of holes for the tabs on the package.

Oops! Sorry LadyAda, I forgot that you have sockets in your store.
