Stamped Spring Pin Socket for 1mm pitch Mobility Radeon 9000
Ironwood Electronics recently introduced a new socket addressing high-performance requirements for burn-in and test applications.
Ironwood Electronics recently introduced a new socket addressing high-performance requirements for burn-in and test applications - SBT-BGA-6558.
The contactor is a stamped spring pin with 31-gram actuation force per ball and cycle life of 125,000 insertions. The self-inductance of the contactor is 0.88 nH, insertion loss of < 1 dB at 15.7 GHz and capacitance 0.097pF. The current capacity of each contactor is 4 amps at 80C temperature rise. Socket temperature range is -55C to +180C. Socket features a floating guide for precise ball to pin alignment.
The socket also features cutout in the floating guide for accommodating die on the bottom side of the package. The specific configuration of the package to be tested in the SBT-BGA-6558 is BGA, 31x31mm body size, 1mm pitch, and 30x30 ball array. To use, drop IC into the socket, place compression plate and swivel the lid. Downforce is applied by turning compression screw. This socket can be used for hand test and quick turn custom burn-in applications with the most stringent requirements.
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.
