New Socket for Burn-In & Test Applications

SBT socket simplifies lab and evaluation applications due to low cost and better electrical/mechanical performance than conventional pogo pin. Custom burn-in socket can be produced using SBT contact in 3 weeks when standard socket is not available. SBT sockets with wide temperature range are available in same footprint as elastomer GHz sockets. SBT sockets are available for 0.5mm to 1.27mm BGA, LGA, QFN, QFP, SOIC and other packages.
