Plastic Leaded Chip Carrier

The PLCC (Plastic leaded chip carrier) is a cheaper alternative to its cermaic alternatives. It is used for various tasks, from automotive to aerospace industries.

PLCCs are often placed in sockets, making them easy to remove or replace. A PLCC extractor can be used to do this in a couple of seconds.

The plastic leads are J-shaped (commonly referred to as J-leads), and PLCCs range from around 18 to 84 leads.
