Stamped Spring Pin Socket for 0.8mm Pitch BGA
BURNSVILLE, MN - October, 2009 - Ironwood Electronics recently introduced a new socket addressing high performance requirements for Burn-in and Test applications - SBT-BGA-6505. The contactor is a stamped spring pin with 26 gram actuation force per ball and cycle life of 100,000 insertions. The self inductance of the contactor is 0.88 nH, insertion loss of < 1 dB at 20 GHz and capacitance 0.097pF. The current capacity of each contactor is 4 amps at 80C temperature rise. Socket temperature range is -55C to +180C. Socket also features a floating guide for precise ball to pin alignment. The specific configuration of the package to be tested in the SBT-BGA-6505 is BGA, 17x17mm body size, 0.8mm pitch and 20x20 ball array. To use, drop IC into the socket, place floating compression plate, swivel the lid, and apply down force using compression screw. This socket can be used for hand test and quick turn custom burn-in applications with the most stringent requirements.
Pricing for the SBT-BGA-6505 is $1268 at qty 1 with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
