18 Pin IC Base
An 18 Pin IC Base is used to avoid damaging integrated circuits (ICs) while testing several circuits at once. These are constructed using tin-plated alloy contacts and black thermoplastic. To make identification easier, one end is notched. To fit longer IC sockets, they can be mounted end to end.
An 18-pin integrated circuit (IC) base is a type of socket or connector used to hold and connect electrically to an IC chip with 18 pins. Electronic circuits employ IC bases to make it simple to install, take out, and replace IC chips without having to solder or unsolder the chip from the circuit board.
- Pins: 18 pins
- Overall Height Above PCB: 4.8mm
- PCB Hole Required: 0.6mm
- Pitch Width: 7.62mm (0.3in)
- Pin Pitch: 2.54mm (0.1in)
To complement the various types and sizes of IC chips, IC bases come in a variety of sizes and layouts. Computers, communications technology, and industrial automation systems are just a few of the many electronic devices and systems that frequently employ them. The pins on the IC chip make electrical contact with the corresponding pins on the IC base when the IC chip is put into the IC base. This makes it simple for the chip to accept power and signals from the circuit as well as to connect to the circuit board.
