I’m working on building a ROM adapter for an old Tandy laptop, and it has a DIP socket like none I’ve ever seen. It will hold a standard .600" 28-pin EEPROM, but it’s fully enclosed, and contacts the pins by pushing on the outside, rather than by gripping the pins themselves. I want to get one of these sockets for programming the ROMs, but I can’t find what this type of socket is called. Anything I search for as a “DIP socket” returns only the standard type socket that we all know. Any ideas what this thing is called?
Thanks a bunch!
