What is a Board Mount Socket?

Socket mount devices consist of a chip or a component that can be removed and replaced by being plugged into a socket on a circuit board.

Types of Board Mount Sockets

There are several different kinds of board mount sockets. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Number of Positions, Type, Termination, Style/Orientation, Packaging Type and Pitch. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common values for Pitch are 2.54 mm. We also carry board mount PCB headers with Pitch as high as 9 mm. The Number of Positions can be between 1 and 440, with 10 and 20 positions being the most common values.
