    I'm trying to find a socket for an BU94601KV-ZAE2. Currently all I can find are these two sockets: http://www.mouser.com/ds/2/448/s_ic149_64p-12789.pdf and http://www.elnec.com/products/programming-adapters/?f=DIL40_VQFP64_ZIF_AWM-1. Would either of these work? And if neither works, then is there a socket that will work?

    The datasheet for the IC is here: http://rohmfs.rohm.com/en/products/databook/datasheet/ic/audio_video/audio_processor/bu94601kv-e.pdf and the store page of the socket from Mouser is here:http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail...IC149-064-075-B5/?qs=nO3wRANIIvmk4SuYw7mG2g==

    hi there

    that particular version you have shown is NOT DESIGNED for a socket it is for surface mount only
    there may be a socketable version, I don't know ??

    The datasheet for that IC only shows a solder type

    Good luck finding what you want. I've been having a lot of problems finding sockets too. Manufacturers are turning-out most surface moount devices now, and the companies that made sockets :)Mill-Max, Aries, Samtec, the guys I
    used to buy from), have really cut back on what they offer now. I've resorted to finding obsolete component vendors, looking for specific sizes of sockets that USED to be made, but aren't any more.

    Actually it looks like the socket from Mouser does fit the chip. But did you notice the price?

    Edit: Also, how do you expect the socket to help you? If you think you can avoid difficult soldering, the socket is going to be more difficult to solder than the chip.

    I think you will find those sockets are for these style IC's where the pins cure under the chip and the chip pushes snuggly into the socket

    and not the style of SMD chip in the OP where the pins are orientated outwards as in the OP

    Dave,

    Click the last link. It shows a typical TQFP chip with the leads splaying out. The dimensions are exactly the same as the chip OP wants to use. And for $93 I don't think it is intended for chips that need a socket. It is a socket for chips that are normally soldered.
