Ironwood Electronics Introduces Spring Pin Socket for Optical Engine CBT-LGA-5019.
Ironwood Electronics recently introduced a new LGA socket addressing high-performance requirements for 1mm pitch Optical Engine - CBT-LGA-5019.
The contactor is a stamped spring pin with 19-gram actuation force per pin and cycle life of 125,000 insertions. The self-inductance of the contactor is 0.93nH, the insertion loss of < 1dB at 23GHz and capacitance 0.097pF. The current capacity of each contactor is 4 amps. Socket temperature range is -55C to +180C. Socket also features an IC guide for precise LGA edge alignment. The specific configuration of the package to be tested in the CBT-LGA-5019 is LGA, 33x33mm body size, 32x32 array, and 1mm pitch.
To use, drop IC into the socket, attach heatsink lid by tightening 4 screws. Vertical force is applied by the integrated compression plate between the heat sink lid and the device. This socket can be used for device characterization, screening modules and custom burn-in applications with the most stringent requirements.
The CBT-LGA-5019 socket features a unique contact design with outside spring and flat stamped plungers that provide a robust solution for Burn-in & Test applications including excellent electrical signal integrity to meet the requirements of today's demanding analog, digital, RF, Bluetooth, and medical device applications. The socket is mounted using supplied hardware on the target PCB with no soldering and uses the smallest footprint in the industry. The small footprint allows inductors, resistors and decoupling capacitors to be placed very close to the device for impedance tuning. The heat sink socket lid incorporates a quick installation method so that IC's can be changed out quickly.
Pricing for the CBT-LGA-5019 is $1,523 at one quantity with reduced pricing available depending on the quantity required.
