Original Press Release:
75GHz Clamshell Socket for BGA1156
Quickly and easily Socket your 1mm pitch 34x34 array, 1156BGA packages on any application board with performance equivalent to direct solder version
EAGAN, MN -- 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-2029 socket is designed for 35x35 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 100 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 clamshell lid which incorporates a quick insertion method so that IC's can be changed out quickly. To use, place the device inside the socket, close the lid by latching and apply downward pressure by turning compression screw.
The GT-BGA-2029 socket is constructed with high performance and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -55 C to +160 C. Works with IC's such as BGA, 35x35mm with 34x34 array and 1mm pitch.
Pricing for the GT-BGA-2029 is $3808 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
