I have an IC that I need to replace by a small PCB. IC is currently plugged in the 44-pin PLCC socket. Is there a way I can keep this socket in place? That is, can I somehow "plug" this new PCB (which I will use instead of IC) into the 44-pin PLCC socket?

PCB is not yet designed, so I have flexibility of adding various pins or adapters.

PLCC Socket looks something like this: PLCC socket looks something like this



The answer seems to be "yes but it's gonna cost you".

A quick google for "PLCC test plug" turned up https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/plcc-sockets/2446896/

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, something like this I also found. I wondered if someone had experience with creating a PCB with pins that could fit this socket. \$\endgroup\$ – DenR Nov 20 '18 at 0:38
