    Hey can anyone tell me how to solder an ic? I know I am supposed to solder the socket and then put the ic in. So how do I solder the socket? Do I solder all pins with each other or do I only solder the ground pin and Vcc pin (to which positive of battery is connected)Thank you in advance

    Have a look at this.

    What this says is that you solder the socket into your circuit, then plug the chip into the socket. This will prevent having to solder onto the pins of the chip, which will probably destroy it.

    When you solder the socket into the circuit, each socket corresponding to the pins on the chip will have to be soldered in to the appropriate point in the circuit. It depends on the circuit you are building, which pins will be used and which will not.
