Abstract : The patent concerns a test socket which contains a plurality of contact washers sandwiched by a plurality of insulators to form a cylinder. Each plate is connected to a single terminal of the socket. Three sets of brushes connected selected contact washers to test equipment by way of feeler pins in the brushes. The selection is performed by a Mylar tape which has holes punched in it. The Mylar tape is placed between the brushes and the washers so as to allow connection of the pins to the washers only when there is presented a hole between the pin and the washer. The integrated circuit to be tested is plugged into the test socket.
