SMT Test Socket - TSSOP-28 Breakout

by generexhh on Fri Mar 18, 2016 6:37 am

Hello together,

i bought this test socket (link below) to programm some controller with a ssop-28 housing. In the description it says that the socket is compatible to tssop and ssop 28 pin ic's. Unfortunalty the ssop28 housing does not fit into the socket. Can i return the part?

Kind regards
Jan

You know those ZIF sockets we have for DIP chips? Well these are just like that but for SMT parts! Yeah, that's right, now you can program and test out your favorite new parts in TSSOP packages. This test sockets is good for any 4.4mm / 0.147" wide TSSOP/SSOP with up to 28 pins. Simply press down on the top, place the chip in carefully and then release to latch the chip in. The chip is held securely against gold 'fingers' in the socket. Please note the body of the chip you're trying to use, for example the FT232RL has a 5.3mm wide body, and will not fit!

Could you post a photo of the socket along with a chip that doesn't fit please? 800x600 images usually work best.

The IC is an CY8C29466-24PVXI from Cypress.
I just noticed that it is also written onto the socket that SSOP28 is supported... :-/

That chip comes in a 5.3mm package:

And as the text you posted above says:

Please note the body of the chip you're trying to use, for example the FT232RL has a 5.3mm wide body, and will not fit!

The socket is still in original condition, so you can return it for store credit, but you'll have to pay the return shipping.

Send a note to support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread and your order number. The folks there will help you.

Better write this information more clear in the description next time. If you go and search for a ssop socket and find this you think its all fine and buy it.

Maybe something like:

SMT Test Socket - TSSOP-28 Breakout

ATTENTION: NOT EVERY SSOP/TSSOP HOUSING HAS THE SAME DIMENSIONS!

I will have a look and see how much it costs to send it back to you.
