    Hi all!

    I'm looking for a certain type of ZIF socket. They are made by 3M, and
    used to be black, but are now available in green.

    I can get most types, but am looking specifically for a universal type
    24 pin one, that can take .3-.6 wide chips. I can get the .3 and .6 only
    ones, and I can get the 28 pin universal one, but cannot find anoyone
    with the 24 pin one.

    Any ideas? It needs to be the £M and not the aries one to replace the
    socket on a Data I/O Unipak 2B.

    Yours, Mark.

    If you can stand ugly, get the 28 pin one, hack off four pins on one end or
    the other on the bottom to make it fit, block those holes on the top, solder
    it in and get to work!
  3. I'm looking for a certain type of ZIF socket. They are made by 3M, and
    I have a 24-pin universal Textool ZIF socket (green), if you want it.
    Looks to have a similar footprint to the Aries, though.

    That's almost an idea, about I was to buy a 28 pin, and take
    it and the existing 24 pin one (whos pins are corroded, hence the need
    for a replacement) and put the new pins into the old shell......

    ....a last resort I suppose - thanks for the idea. I would still prefer
    to get a new one, as I've replaced all the others in the unipak, and
    would have liked to get this one new as well.

    Yours, Mark.
