I got 10 socket samples from SAMTEC for free. Part # SHF-105-01-L-D-XX, where XX is below. Not sure what minimum order volume is, but I got the impression it would be ‘in bulk’ from the site.
TH for the through hole version.
SM for surface mount,
RA for right angle.
They even paid for super fast shipping from someplace in the US. I got them next day!
