Press Release Summary:
Giga-snaP(TM) BGA SMT adapter pair consists of SF-BGA316C-B-62F female sockets with machined pins epoxy over-molded into assembly that matches male pin LS-BGA316C-61. Soldered to PCB using standard soldering methods without warping, SF-BGA316C-B-62F allows 0.8 mm pitch, 17 x 17 mm body, 20 x 20 array Analog Device ADSP-BF539/ADSP-BF539F ICs to be socketed and operate in demanding automotive applications. Both adapters are constructed with high temperature FR-4 bodies.
Original Press Release:
Chip Size BGA 0.8mm Socket Adapter for Analog Device Blackfin Embedded Processor
Users can socket their 316 pin 0.8mm pitch BGA Analog Device ADSP-BF539/ADSP-BF539F ICs with a socket featuring a footprint the same as an IC footprint.
Burnsville, MN - May 27, 2009 - Ironwood Electronics' new high performance socket - SF-BGA316C-B-62F - allows 0.8mm pitch, 17x17mm body, 20x20 array Analog Device ADSP-BF539/ADSP-BF539F IC's to be socketed and operate without compromising performance in demanding automotive applications. The Giga-snaP(TM) BGA SMT adapter pair consists of SF-BGA316C-B-62F patent-pending female sockets with machined pins epoxy over-molded into an assembly that matches the male pin LS-BGA316C-61.
The RoHS compliant SF-BGA316C-B-62F is soldered to a PCB using standard soldering methods without warping, resulting in a reliable connection to a PCB. Both adapters are constructed with high temperature FR-4 bodies, assuring match with target PCBs and preventing failures that occur with CTE mismatch.
The LS-BGA316C-61 BGA adapter, to which the user attaches a target 316 ball Analog Devices BGA chip or other compatible chip, is plugged into the female socket on the board. Once this step is completed, the chip is interconnected, and the system is ready to operate.
The SMT adapters have the same solder ball types as the IC they are emulating. The Giga-snaP BGA Surface Mount Feet Adapters require half the force of conventional adapters at 10 pounds for the 316 pin device. The electrical path of the Giga-snaP BGA SMT adapters - a high priority performance issue defined by the physical length from the top connection point on the male adapter to the solder ball on the female socket - is 4.5mm. This is the shortest connection length by far for machined pin sockets, therefore providing better transmission of high frequency signals.
These adapters passed environmental tests (MIL-STD) and qualified for use in automotive applications. The 0.8mm Giga-snaP BGA SMT Adapter line is available in many different pin counts, and customs can be delivered in days.
Pricing for the SF-BGA316C-B-62F @qty1 = $200.00 each and LS-BGA316C-61 @qty1 = $79.00
