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.

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 […]

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 […]

Chip size socket connects LPDDR5 to system PCB with minimal signal loss. Supported device size is 14x14mm, 21×21 array, 0.65mm pitch BGA 441. Once the socket is soldered down to PCB, device can be simply plugged into it. This Grypper socket has excellent electrical performance of – 1dB insertion loss greater than 25.0 GHz. Force […]

Image Sensor Sockets: A Key Factor in Camera Design The proliferation of valuable high-resolution, high-speed, and 3D image sensors makes the use of sockets an increasingly important factor in camera development. Camera makers — and, therefore, image sensor makers — today are under greater pressure than ever to offer new models that provide higher resolution […]

The SM-BGA socket is constructed with high performance (> 40GHz bandwidth) and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -55 °C to +150 °C. The pin self-inductance is 0.21 nH. Capacitance to ground is 0.15 pF. Current capacity is 4 amps per pin.
