Andromeda Research Labs AccuTouch Probe ATPB1
Andromeda Research Labs AccuTouch probe provides a quick-connect option for 8 pin (SOIC) surface mount serial eeproms. Unlike a clip, the probe is held in place while reading or programming a part. Each probe pin tip incorporates a 4 point crown design which offers good sealant penetration plus a wide connection footprint. An alignment notch allows accurate positioning of the probe over the chip package. Once in place, you press straight down until the notch ends touch the circuit board with the pins contacting the leads. A red mark on the end of the notch marks pin #1.
