WEDGE CLIP - 0.50MM & 0.65MM SSOP, TSOP, TSSOP, TQFP

Wedge Clip technology ensures reliable probing of 3, 8 or 16 signals on 0.5mm or 0.65mm pitch signals. The clip alleviates the frustration of accidentally shorting IC pins together; the electrical or mechanical problems associated with soldering, and/or holding multiple probes while using your scope. The clip is excellent for those times when a standard test clip doesn't exist or you only need to access a few pins. No “keep out” area is required surrounding the device as the wedge clip probe is inserted between the leads of the device. The side of each wedge clip contact connects with each package leg as it is inserted. An insulated core electrically isolates the sides of each signal probe ensuring electrical reliability.
