GHz BGA socket for 8x12mm memory devices
Socket your High-density DDR3 Memory packages using elastomer socket with superior electrical performance
Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new high performance BGA socket for 0.8mm pitch, 8x12mm memory device. GHz BGA socket is designed for testing memory device packaged in ball grid array format and operates at bandwidths up to 8 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The contact resistance is typically 20 milliohms per I/O. The socket connects all pins with 8 GHz bandwidth on all connections. The socket is mounted using supplied hardware on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses smallest footprint in the industry. The socket also incorporates a new quick insertion method using shoulder screws and swivel socket lid so that IC's can be changed out quickly. The socket also features floating compression mechanism to accommodate package manufacturing variations. GHz BGA sockets are constructed with high performance and low inductance gold plated embedded wire on elastomer as interconnect material between device and PCB. The temperature range is -35C to +100 C. The pin self inductance is 0.15 nH and mutual inductance of 0.025 nH. Capacitance to ground is 0.01 pF. Current capacity is 2 amps per pin.
