Zip is a funky little package closest in kin to SIP except the pins are in a 
zig-zag shape instead of straight inline. Ones I have seen are something 
like .05" spacing--compact for production but not great for DIY soldering 
and impossible to breadboard. They look like frankenstein versions of SIP 
resistor networks.
