Aries [correction: Berg Electronics, McKenzie socket division] used to sell WW PLCC sockets which I bought years ago

Image

and when I lamented on 6502.org today that AFAIK no one makes them anymore, BigEd gave us a link to http://uk.rs-online.com/web/c/?searchTe ... ra=oss&r=t which apparently stocks them in many sizes!

Note that they are no bigger than the SMT PLCC sockets.

Wow, that`s expensive! I was expecting to see those prices for a Pk of 5 or something!
you Can buy breakout boards cheaper that will give you the DIP spaced pins for less but be carefull of the 44 pin versions that give 40 pin dip, these are fine for some MCUs but not all PLC devices (do check the pinouts for the relevent N/C pins in the corect spaces 1`st).

as a Wire wrapper myself, I find it easier to just buy the ordinary WW pins and PLCC sockets and mount the socket as you would an ordinary chip into the pins, Tons cheaper! and just as effective.
here`s an example: http://www.pyroelectro.com/tutorials/cp ... dware.html

just a thought ;)

There are ones like this

but they won't be good for high-speed performance.

That's a good idea, using the strips like that. What I had envisioned before when you or someone mentioned it was not the strips but the separate pins, but that would be much harder to handle, and probably even more expensive. I think I might epoxy the pin strip to the body of the socket after connecting it. Also, it does not appear to be any thicker.
