Press Release Summary:
Used to socket 16 x 16 x 0.8 mm BGA packages on any application board, SM-BGA-9006 operates at bandwidths up to 40 GHz with less than 1 dB insertion loss. It dissipates few watts with compression screw and can be customized up to 100 W with modified fin design on top of screw and adding axial flow fan. Constructed with elastomer contactor, socket features shoulder screw and swivel lid that incorporates quick insertion method to accelerate IC changeout.
Original Press Release:
40 GHz Bandwidth Socket for JEDEC's LFBGA361
Quickly and easily Socket your 16x16mm, 0.8mm pitch BGA packages on any application board with performance equivalent to direct solder version
BURNSVILLE, MN - Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new high performance BGA socket product line using unique elastomer capable of high speed, low inductance, high endurance and wide temperature applications. The SM-BGA-9006socket is designed for 16X16 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 40 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The socket is also designed to dissipate few watts with 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 15 milliohms per pin. The socket connects all pins with 40 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 SM-BGA-9006 socket is constructed with high performance and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -55 C to +150 C. The pin self inductance is 0.10 nH and mutual inductance of 0.007 nH. Capacitance to ground is 0.069 pF. Current capacity is 4 amps per pin. Works with IC's such as STM's LFBGA, 16x16mm with 19X19 array and 0.8mm pitch.
Pricing for the SM-BGA-9006 is $1727 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
