ANC-8000 Series

SMD Test Socket Prototyping Adapters



  ANC-8000 prototype adapters provide a quick and efficient means for the designer to wire/wrap prototypes and short runs of equipment. The adapters, which are available with either 3-level wire/wrap pin or gold machine pins, are designed to accommodate PLD or erasable type devices which are frequently installed and removed. The clam shell type test socket is rated at 25,000 insertion/removal cycles.   Save hours of breadboard, debug, and rework time doing your next prototype.   Concentrate on the design, not the proto construction.

Test and Debug

  Test points on each component lead provide the designer with a numbered connection for oscilloscope and logic analyzer probes.   Ever removed or installed an IC from a prototype board that was powered up?   On several 8000 series adapters a LED circuit on the board provides a user definable indication of operation or "power-on" condition.

Ease of Use

  In addition to the component side leads being numbered for easy access to each pin, the user's manual includes an adhesive backed universal numbering sheet, which identify pins on the wire-wrap side to guide the wire-wrap process.   The user's manual also provides a numbered pin designation sheet to use as a signal-to-pin reference. You can look at a sample layout sheet for our ANC-9044 below.

    ANC-8x nn V

    ANC-80 nn V = 3-level wire/wrap pins
    ANC-85 nn V = .018" dia. gold machine pins

    nn = total component pins (for greater than 100, see below)   V=pin numbering/socket type
    J=PLCC/pin 1 center, S=PLCC/pin 1 corner
    L=LCC/pin 1 corner, T=LCC/pin 1 center
    X=Xilinx compatible socket (used on ANC-8100/8500 20x30 rectangular packed chip)

    Example: our most popular test adapter, the ANC-8068J is a 68-pin PLCC with pin #1 on the center-side of the chip and 1 inch wire/wrap pins

    ANC-81 nn V = 3-level wire/wrap pins
    ANC-86 nn V = .018" Dia. gold machine pins

    Example: ANC-8160Q is a 160 QFP, pin #1 in center of chip, wire/wrap pins
