When I order ICs from larger retailers, they are delivered in a plastic housing that prevents the pins from becoming bent during shipping. With a chip included, they look like this:
I would like to buy more of these so that I can store and ship some ICs I have that didn't come with one, however I am having no luck finding any for sale so I must be using the wrong search terms.
I have looked for chip/ic + carrier, housing, packing, storage, etc. but not found anything remotely like this. I've tried the same retailers that sell the chips as well as places like eBay but I can't find anything at all.
What do retailers call these items when they are up for sale?
