Aries Electronics, a US manufacturer of standard, programmed and custom interconnection products, Burn-in and Test IC Sockets AND Adapters used worldwide, announced the introduction of a new line of low-cost, quick-turn, Correct-A-Chip® IC Adapters for common IC devices.
These adapters enable the user to transform (or adapt) standard SOIC, MSOP, TSSOP or QFP packages into standard thru-hole DIP configurations for breadboarding and prototyping use.
Unlike the standard Aries Correct-A-Chip® Adapters, these new items are designed for VERY quick delivery and low cost. The adapters are fabricated from a 0.062″ thick, FR-4, with ½-oz Cu traces. The pins are made from a Au-plated brass and are designed for operating temperatures of -55°C to +125°C.
The quick delivery on all items is ensured by a special stocking program in association with Future Electronics, DigiKey Corporation, and Mouser Electronics. All part numbers are continually available off-the-shelf at these authorized distributors for next-day delivery (if desired).
Industry-leading products include… Zero-Insertion-Force (ZIF) Test Sockets for DIP, PGA, BGA, QFN, QFP and SOIC devices; the “Intelligent” Correct-A-Chip® product line; adapters and connectors; several patented concepts for BGA (Ball Grid Array) and LGA (Land Grid Array) sockets; and an extensive array of High-Frequency Test and Burn-in Sockets. The company also specializes in meeting custom requirements for its customers.
