I'm currently using "nose pickers" (a friend at work related that
pleasant name) aka XKM grabbers
attach my low-cost pc-based logic analyzer to some old DIP chips.
They are pretty nice but when you start using a bunch in a row, they can
get pretty cumbersome.
I'm looking for DIP IC test clips for both 40-pin and 48-pin chips.
40-pin doesn't seem too hard to come by, 48-pin seems harder.
Here's a picture of what I'm basically looking for:
They clip on the already socketed IC and provide square male header pins
on the top of the clip to attach.
These are for personal use, and I don't want to spend $100 on clips.
Anyone have a line on cheap clips or happen to have any around you want
to get rid of?
P.S. I can find plenty of online datasheets from various manufacturers
but trying to find a stocking reseller that will sell them onesy twosy
to hobbyists is harder.
