    Hi, I just bought a L298n a bipolar stepper motor I which is 15 pins IC. May I know how do I find its IC socket because I can't find this IC socket and just modify a 18 pin IC socket. It is not so good because it is easy short circuit if modify with this way. May I know has anyone has an idea or has seen this socket before? Can you please tell me? Thanks. :)

    Hi,

    Go to www.digikey.com and order part #ED7064 @ $2.64. You'lll get a Mill-Max single in-line strip socket 64 pins long that may be broken into any shorter length desired.

    Hi there, 'beenthere'
    not questioning your authority, but has this actually worked for you?
    I have fond that IC's with the package type discussed here to have quite soft pins, not somthing that would easily push into a socket, also the socket of the pins suggested (turned pin/machined pin) would be too small for this. ??
    Am I wrong?

    hi,

    is your L298N a multiwatt15 V or H? why not just solder is directly on the board. saves you the $2.+ as what "beenthere" has suggested.
