TSSOP 24 ZIF deal
Fred posted a topic in Embedded Systems/Test Equipment DealsJust had this via email from TI. I'm sure they'd be happy for me to pass it on. The big question is - what comes in TSSOP24 (apart from the AFE2xx mentioned)? I've mostly seen 20 or 28. I'm sure somebody will point out loads so I'm off to search now...
Programming chips through the IO pins and a ZIF socketHi all, I want to use an MSP430 Launchpad as a "programmer" for standalone MSP430[...] chips, the same ones used in the Launchpad itself. I thought about removing the existing chip from the board, attaching a ZIF socket through some PCB to all the IO pins, and putting the chip-to-be-programmed on the ZIF socket. I figured it's essentially the same as replacing the chip in the Launchpad socket itself, only easier on its metal pins. Will it work, or am I missing something? Perhaps I'll need to remove the LED jumpers? Anything else? Thank you very much in advance!
