Stamped Spring Pin Socket for Burn-in and Test Applications

Ironwood Electronics recently introduced a new socket—the SBT-BGA-6553—to address high-performance requirements for burn-in and test applications.

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 0.88nH, insertion loss of < 1dB at 15.7GHz and capacitance 0.097pF. The current capacity of each contactor is 4 amps at 80°C temperature rise. Socket temperature range is -55°C to +180°C.

Socket features a floating guide for a precise ball-to-pin alignment. Socket also includes integrated compression plate that has a center opening for accessing device top surface. The specific configuration of the package to be tested in the SBT-BGA-6553 is BGA, 17x17mm body size, 0.8mm pitch, and 20x20 ball array.

To use, drop an IC into the socket, replace the lid, and apply down force using four screws alternatively. This socket can be used for hand testing and quick-turn custom burn-in applications with the most stringent requirements.
