Jim, are you talking about the adpaters made by Aries?


I remember when they introduced the Correct-A-Chip--intended for 
applicationwhen your PCB layout guy was suffering the morning after 
the night before and reversed the pins on an IC.

BTW, the Landmark ROM POST for the PC and XT used to use one of these 
to adapt a 2764 to the 24-pin ROM configuration in the 5150.  It has 
a small slide swich on it to switch between 24 and 28 pins (when you 
used it in a 5150, you let 4 pins hang over the edge of the socket).
