SIP Sockets & Adapters

Our high quality, dependable Single In-line Package (SIP) Sockets, Adapters, and Headers are designed with robust screw-machined terminals for superior performance. 


Solder Preform Terminals

Solder Preform Terminal How It Works

Typical Applications: Intrusive reflow, eliminate need for wave soldering on mixed SMT/Through-hole boards

  • Combines the labor of socket loading and solder application into one operation.
  • Eliminates use of solder paste and the Solder Preform Terminalsscreening operation.
  • Eliminates solder bridges and/or solder shorts due to excess solder.
  • Ensures a reliable solder joint with controlled solder volume.
  • Ideal for surface mount and mixed technology applications.
  • For custom solder preform terminal applications consult factory.

Peel-A-Way® Removable Terminal Carriers

Peel-A-Way Removable Terminal Carriers


Typical Applications: Eliminate hand-loading of pins, facilitate solder joint visibility, low profile component mounting or board mating

  • Place socket on PC board.Peel-A-Way Sockets - after carrier removal
  • Send PC board and socket through soldering operation.
  • Peel away polyimide film carrier for complete solder joint visibility or leave in place for added stability.

Tape Seal

DIP Socket with Removable Tape Seal

Typical Applications: Harsh environments, long term storage, applications that call for spray flux

  • Removable tape seal protects plated contacts in harsh environments.
  • Sealed socket will not allow contaminants to enter socket chamber and become entrapped behind contact fingers.
  • Spray flux without contaminating contact area.
  • Material: Silicone backed polyimide film, -74° C to 260° C (-100° F to 500° F), intermittent to 371° C (700° F).
