Press release date: February 1, 2014

EAGAN, MN -- Ironwood Electronics' new high performance socket - SFS-BGA153B-52 allows 0.5mm pitch, 11.5x13mm body, 14X14 array e-MMC module product housed in 153 ball BGA package to be placed in socket and operated without compromising performance in memory applications.

The Giga-snaP™ BGA socket adapter pair consists of SFS-BGA153B-52, patented female BGA sockets with BeCu pins assembled into a substrate that matches the male pin LSS-BGA153B-51 adapter. The RoHS compliant SFS-BGA153B-52 BGA socket is soldered to a PCB using standard soldering methods without warping which results in reliable connection to PCB. Both BGA socket and adapter are constructed with high temperature polyimide and FR-4 body assuring match with target PCB's and preventing failures that occur due to CTE mismatch. LSS-BGA153B-51 BGA adapter, to which the user attaches a target 153 pin e-MMC chip or other compatible chip, is plugged into the female BGA socket on the board, thereby chip is interconnected and the system is ready to go.

The Giga-snaP BGA socket adapters require very low insertion and extraction force for ease of operation. The electrical path of the Giga-snaP™ BGA socket adapters is a high priority performance issue with the physical length from the top connection point on the male adapter to the solder ball on the female socket is 3 mm. This is the shortest connection length by far for interconnect pin sockets, therefore providing better transmission of high frequency signals up to 20GHz with -1dB insertion loss. Operating temperature range is -55C to +160C and the current rating is 3A per pin. The Giga-snaP™ BGA socket adapter line is available in many different pin counts/pitches and customs can be delivered in days.

Pricing for the SFS-BGA153B-52 @qty1 = $216.00 each with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required. Pricing for the LSS-BGA153B-51 @qty1 = $44.00 each with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
