    hi,

    I bought an Analog MEMS accelerometer (http://www.analog.com/en/prod/
    0%2C2877%2CADXL193%2C00.html) and I'd like to be able to put in on a
    breadboard for prototyping purposes. Does anyone know what kind of
    socket is suitable and where I can get it? The pin configuration is a
    bit unusual: 3 on each long side and 1 on each short side.

    thanks,
    Jon.

    Sockets for this sort of package are built on a special semi-custom
    basis; if you can find one expect it to cost somewhere between $200
    and $500.

    It is not advisable to socket an accelerometer anyway because you'll
    get mechanical drift and difficulty in reproducing results. The
    package is designed to self-align on a PCB by surface tension forces
    during reflow soldering.
