Tips/advice for using the 5315 SOIC 8-Pin Test Clip to DIP Adapter?

Post by Joe0x7F »

Will someone please offer tips/tricks/advice for using the 5315 SOIC 8-Pin Test Clip to DIP Adapter, please?

https://www.adafruit.com/product/5315

Specifically, I am hoping I can read the W25Q64JVSSIQ while it is in-circuit.

Unfortunately, the W25Q64JVSSIQ is soldered on a board and not on a breakout board, like the
Adafruit QSPI DIP Breakout Board - W25Q64 - 64 MBit 8 MByte - W25Q64JVSSIQ
Product ID: 5633

Nor is it in the
SMT Socket - Wide SOIC-8 (200mil) - Wieson G6179-10
Product ID: 4726


Thank you!

The clip allows you to plug the other end into a solderless breadboard and now have access to all 8 pins. Or you can simply connect test leads directly to the pins of the "DIP" side.

Or put another way, this is like the breakout board you cited but instead of 8 holes you get 8 pins. Although with the clip, you are basically clipping on in parallel with the signals so you can see what they are doing. The clip doesn't put you "in between" the chip and the rest of the circuit if that is what you were hoping.
