The 16 pin IC base is an IC bed, where a DIP (Dual-inline-Package) IC of 16 legs can be placed onto the PCB. It is used in PCB for mounting purpose of ICs. Any IC of 16 pins DIP can be mounted onto this IC base. It can make the PCB multipurpose, means you can use the same Development platform to program different IC of 16 Pins.
Easy to sold the IC base legs.
This is used to mount any 18 pin IC.
It is soldered over a pcb board.
By using this IC Base PCB circuit board will be flexible to replace your ic.
