New 1.00 mm And 1.27 mm Pitch BGA Sockets And Adapters Now Available From Aries
Frenchtown, NJ, December 2001 - Aries Electronics, an international manufacturer of standard, programmed and custom interconnection products, now offers BGA sockets and adapters with pitches of 1.00 mm or 1.27 mm.
The new BGA adapter features three polarizing locating pins ensuring perfect alignment of the adapter with the socket. The BGA socket has 3-finger female contacts that provide wiping action. The socket features stamped and formed contact pins, unlike the more costly machine pin design currently used in the industry. When mated together, the BGA socket and BGA adapter measure only 3.17 mm (.125") in height.
The extremely low insertion and withdrawal forces, provided by a gold-plated mating contact system, make the socket and adapter ideal for high I/O or ball count applications. This contact system can also eliminate the need for a ZIF socket.
Operating temperature for socket and adapter is 125°C (257°F) with a current rating of 1 amp. The base of each device is UL94V-0 FR-4 and estimated durability is 100 mated cycles.
Aries also offers specialized design and production of the BGA socket and adapter, including custom platings, sizes, configurations and materials, depending on quantities. Pricing for a 1.27mm pitch BGA Adapter and Socket starts at $0.15 per mated pair in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is 2-4 weeks ARO.
