Press Release Summary:
Designed to socket 27 x 27 mm, 1 mm pitch, 616-pin BGA ICs on any PCB, SG-BGA-6346 operates at bandwidths up to 8 GHz with less than 1 dB insertion loss. Socket dissipates 4.5 W with passive heat sinking and 40 W with active. Contact resistance is 20 mohms typ per pin, and mounting to target PCB is accomplished without any soldering. Socket is constructed with shoulder screw and swivel lid, which incorporates quick insertion method for accelerated ICs change-out.
Original Press Release:
8 GHz Bandwidth Socket for ST Micro's 616FPBGA
Quickly and easily Socket your 27x27mm, 1mm pitch BGA packages on any PCB without significant performance loss
BURNSVILLE, MN - Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new high performance BGA socket for 1mm pitch, 616 pin BGA IC's. The SG-BGA-6346 socket is designed for 27X27 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 8 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The sockets are designed to dissipate 4.5 watts with passive heat sinking (natural convection) and can handle up to 40 watts with active heat sinking (DC fan on top of heat sink). The contact resistance is typically 20 milliohms per pin. The socket connects all pins with 8 GHz bandwidth on all connections. The socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses industry's smallest footprint (only 2.5mm more on each side). The socket is constructed with shoulder screw and swivel lid which incorporates a quick insertion method so that IC's can be changed out quickly.
The SG-BGA-6346 socket is constructed with high performance and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -35 C to +100 C. The pin self inductance is 0.15 nH and mutual inductance of 0.025 nH. Capacitance to ground is 0.01 pF. Current capacity is 2 amps per pin. Works with IC's such as ST Micro FPBGA, 27X27mm with 26X26 array and 1mm pitch.
Pricing for the SG-BGA-6346 is $807 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
