16 Pin IC Base (DIP Socket)
This is a 16 pin IC Base with pins spaced at 0.1″(2.54 mm) .
Use this IC base for easily plugging in and out ICs duringprototyping. Also use this IC base to protect IC from damage due to heat whilesoldering by first soldering the base to the board and then plugging in the IClater.
IC bases are also useful if you want to reuse ICs without the need todesolder them each time.
