I've never seen a ZIF bios socket, personally. A ZIF socket is one that has a lever or something like that to install and remove the chip, like the ones on CPUs.

Looks like the grasshopper paid with his life for the dirty deed. Crime doesn't pay, at least for grasshoppers. for politicians maybe.

OK I think we have a little confusion about zif in general from my understanding an eeprom socket is not a zif or a LIF because to put the buggers in and out takes force .
Here is a wiki page on zif hope it helps I'm understanding
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero_insertion_force

You are right, real ZIF socket is with a leaver but most sockets are made to be easy to insert but more difficult to pull the chips out. Some of the sockets, like the ones with side contacts are something in between and chips are easier to pull out then from classic ones. Even from classic ones chips are prone to wriggle out a bit ( Atari twist anyone ?)

I remember having to pull a dip package without the right tools very scary experience and don't even want to remember when I had to pull one of the square little buggers as well, all I can say is it can be done however really not advisable :-)

Niah, it could be done easy. Now, re balling VLSI chips is a chore, changing socketed ones is a walk in the park comparing to that one.biggrin.gif
