75GHz BGA Socket for FCBGA955
Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new BGA socket design using high performance elastomer capable of 75GHz, very low inductance and wide temperature applications.
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-2086 socket is designed for 21x21 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 75GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The socket is designed to dissipate few watts using compression screw and can be customized up to 300 watts with modified fin design on top of the screw and adding axial flow fan. The contact resistance is typically 30 milliohms per pin. The socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses very small real estate allowing capacitors/resistors to be placed close by.
Other passive components can be placed on the back side of PCB by creating custom cutouts in the stiffener plate. The socket is constructed with sliding lid which incorporates a quick insertion method so that IC's can be changed out quickly. To use, place the device inside the socket, slide the lid and apply downward pressure by turning compression screw. The GT-BGA-2086 socket is constructed with high performance and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -55 C to +160 C and the sockets work with ICs such as 955 BGA, 21x21mm with 31x31 array and 0.65mm pitch.
About Ironwood Electronics
Ironwood Electronics is ISO9001:2008 certified and offers a wide selection of high-performance adapters and sockets, plus experienced engineering for quick-turn customs. Ironwood Electronics offer probing, prototype, and SMT package emulation for all SMT packages. Ironwood Electronics products include High-bandwidth 40 GHz sockets for BGA/QFN, pitches down to 0.3 mm, only 2.5 mm larger than IC. Latest adapters include QFN/MLF package emulators, BGA high endurance test sockets, BGA production adapters, and back-to-back Xilinx-compatible BGA sockets. These adapters/sockets support the product life cycle. In the design cycle, engineers are able to test and develop products more quickly with Ironwood prototype and test adapters for all package type--along with the very high density 40 GHz BGA and QFN/MLF sockets. In production, Ironwood can help extend the product life of PCBs, using package converter technology to replace or upgrade original or obsolete components and provide small to high volume turn-key solutions.
