Re: [N8VEM-S100:386] Re: What DIP sockets to use in building boards

Speaking of sockets .... any "serial board" builders have any info on the USB245R module?  The legs are way more heavy-duty than a typical chip.  Are you guys soldering it directly into the board?  If not, any hints on what kind of socket to use?  Seems a standard socket won't work well (not even machine pin).  What to do?

Oh, and I've found that Futurlec Electronics has pretty good quality sockets at a good price -- that is, if you can stand to wait the 10 days to 2 weeks that it takes for them to ship to the States.
