Having trouble ordering from several webshops in Europe (The only want 
to send you parts if you order in huge quantities or if you are a 
company) I've found the following at digikey in the US.


I know they are 8-SOIC but have ordered (and received)  8-SOIC -> 8-DIP 
pcb's so can easily convert between the sockets. I guess these should 
work just fine?
