8 Pin SOIC Socket
An 8 pin SOIC socket is a surface-mounted integrated circuit device that is connected with 8 pins. In short, it can be referred to as an SOIC-8 socket. If you want to use an SOIC-8 socket in your PCB, then you will have to draw a component footprint and include the number of pins you need for it on your schematic. Creating component footprints can be time-consuming but with the right technology you can easily create this step in the design phase and move on to the PCB layout phase.
Altium Designer is an end-to-end PCB design platform. From drawing your schematic to drawing component footprints to connecting those to real-world components like an 8 pin SOIC socket, you can complete your project because the tools are right there at your fingertips.
