(3) (Dual In-line Package) A common, mostly-rectangular chip housing with leads (pins) on both sides. Tiny wires bond the chip to metal leads that wind their way down into spider-like feet. The DIP is plugged into a socket or inserted into holes in the printed circuit board and soldered. See DIP switch, CDIP, CERDIP and chip package.
