MICTOR breakout boards are created for users needing a high-speed, reliable, low cost solution for testing surface mount and BGA packages which can be difficult to probe directly. In addition, these adapters can bridge the gap between older PCB designs using stake headers and newer PCB designs using MICTOR connectors.
SAMTEC - ET's newest probing adapter support the Agilent differential and single ended probes with 100-pin Samtec 0.50mm pitch connectors. The new adapter permits designers easy access, debug and probing ability for fine-pitch individual and hard to reach signals in high-speed electronic designs.

  • Programming Adapters
    Programmers normally have DIP sockets. IC normally come in packages other than DIP. Adapters.com solves this by offering a full line of programming adapters thousands of ICs.
    Adapters.com Adapter Search will  make your search easier.
  • Logic analyzer Adapters
    Logic analyzer adapters connect to your target board and allow you to attach logic analyzers or other test equipment. The Logic Anaylser adapters can clip over the device, plug into a socket and allow the IC to be placed in a socket on the top of the adapter, or solder down to a board and allow the IC to be soldered into the top of the adapter.
  • Accessories
    Micro grabbers for testing individual pins on PQFP and TSOP packages, vacuum pens and other accessories.

Lock-Wedge Test Clip Adapters

(Formerly known as the "Delta Probe")
The Lock-Wedge Test Clip is made up of an array of wedge shaped conductors, which make contact by the penetrating between the IC legs.

The Lock-Wedge Test Clip series uses an unique technology to solve the complex problem of monitoring all of the signals at once on quad flat pack (QFP), thin small outline (TSOP), small outline (SOIC), and other fine-pitch IC packages. The line covers several pin counts from 32 pin to 240 pin. Over 25 different Lock-Wedge Test Clip configurations will be available soon.
