Take advantage of the low cost SI simulation offered by Ironwood Electronics, Inc. Impedance mismatch in contacts in test sockets can affect the signal integrity (SI) performance when testing high-speed semiconductor ICs. This discontinuity is mainly caused by mechanical features in interconnects/contactors that may result in impedance change. The signal integrity analysis of high-speed electronic […]

Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new BGA socket design using high performance elastomer capable of 75GHz, very low inductance and wide temperature applications. The GT-BGA-2105 socket is designed for 15×15 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 75GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The socket is designed to dissipate 5 […]
