Aries Announces New 160-Pin QFP Correct-A-Chip Adapter



Frenchtown, NJ, May 2005 -- Aries Electronics, an international manufacturer of standard, programmed and custom interconnection products, has announced the development of a new Correct-A-Chip adapter that converts a 160-pin QFP package with .65 mm pin-to-pin spacing into a 160-pin through-hole array. With this adapter, the QFP package can be used in boards designed for the through-hole footprint of a Yamaichi footprint socket, resulting in a more reliable connection than with a QFP socket.

The UL94V-0 rated adapter is constructed with a .062" thick, glass filled FR-4 material with 1 oz. copper traces. The male pins are brass alloy 360 per ASTM-B-16 plated with 200 u" tin over 100 u" nickel per QQ-N-290, and are both soldered and pressed into the body, providing a rugged and reliable solder connection. The extremely low profile of the adapter provides extra room for mounting the component in space-restricted applications.

This adapter is part of Aries' line of Correct-A-Chip intelligent connectors, which can modify and upgrade existing designs without changing existing PCB layouts.

Pricing for a Correct-A-Chip 160-306045-10 is $25 in quantities of 50. Delivery is three weeks ARO.
