GT sockets are ideal for prototyping and testing almost any BGA device application that requires high signal integrity. This new elastomer technology has silver particles held in a conductive column like buttons which are embedded in a non-conductive polymer substrate on a proper pitch that provides high compliance and works in extreme temperature ranges.

Quickly and easily Socket your 1mm pitch 28×28 array, BGA783 packages on any application board with performance equivalent to direct solder version using high speed and low inductance elastomer that operates from -55 °C to +160 °C.

Embedded Wire Elastomer Sockets for High Speed Applications SG elastomer sockets allow for very high speed testing of 0.3mm to 1.27mm pitch BGA, LGA, QFN, QFP and SOIC devices on the same footprint as other Ironwood socket technologies. Embedded Wire in Elastomer (SG) contact technology consists of a fine pitch matrix (0.05mm x 0.05mm) of […]

Stamped Spring Pin Sockets for High Speed Applications Stamped Spring Pin (SBT) sockets excel in both high insertion count and demanding thermal requirements. The SBT contact is a stamped contact with an external spring and a connecting inner leaf spring. SBT sockets offer low cost and better electrical/mechanical performance than conventional pogo pin sockets while […]

Giga-snaP BGA SMT Adapters allow affordable socketing The new Giga-snaP line of BGA SMT adapters provide the most reliable interconnect to BGA SMT pads. These patented adapters remain attached through many solder cycles and will not warp as plastic molded parts. They also offer half the insertion force of other SMT adapters. FEATURES AND BENEFITS […]

Board-to-Board Connector for High Speed Applications Connectors using spring pin, elastomer and pin / socket interconnect technology provide up to 94GHz signal speed in a smallest footprint for prototype and production applications. These rugged interconnects utilize our laser-and-laminate process for rapid development and short lead-times, without expensive hard tooling. These connectors support pitches from 0.3mm […]

Socket and Test your 4.2×3.8mm BGA device using extreme temperature socket Ironwood Electronics recently introduced a new Stamped spring pin socket addressing high performance requirements for testing BGA35 – CBT-BGA-7525. The contactor is a stamped spring pin with 8 gram actuation force per ball and cycle life of 75,000 insertions. The self inductance of the […]
