Socket Technology Summary
Thermal Management Solution
Silver Button Sockets
BGA sockets and QFN sockets using GT contact technology provide >75GHz signal speed in a smallest footprint for prototype and test applications. These sockets support pitches from 0.15mm to 1.27mm. Standard sizes typically ship within 5 days ARO.
Silver Ball Matrix Sockets
SM/SMP sockets' unique elastomer contact operates at high bandwidth (40 GHz), high temperature (150C) as well as high endurance cycles (500K). Solutions are available for 0.25mm to 1.27mm LGA, BGA, QFN, CSP, POP, WLP, and other packages.
Silver Particle Interconnect Sockets
Xtreme silver particle GHz interconnect (XG) technology allows sockets to operate at very high frequency and high current applications for BGA and QFN. XG socket is particularly effective for pitch conversion and impedance matching with very low series resistance but requires tight co-planarity.
Socket Accessories (SMT Options)
SMT adapters allow GHz sockets to mount on PCB where no mounting holes exist and SMT pads exist for each contact. Ironwood's standard GHz elastomer or Spring pin sockets or other technology sockets can be mounted on SMT adapters.
Socket Accessories (Lid/Tool Options)
GHz elastomer, spring pin and other socket technologies can accommodate different lid options depending upon the application requirement. Typical choices are swivel lid, clamshell lid, double latch lid, heat sink lid, etc. Custom lid solutions can be delivered in days.
GHz Elastomer Sockets
Our GHz BGA & QFN/MLF sockets provide excellent signal integrity in a small, cost effective ZIF socket for prototype and test applications. Our sockets support pitches down to 0.3mm.
Stamped Spring Pin Sockets
SBT socket simplifies lab and evaluation applications due to low cost and better electrical/mechanical performance than conventional pogo pin. SBT sockets with wide temperature range are available in same footprint as elastomer GHz sockets.
Spring Pin Sockets
The Spring Pin Socket line allows very high endurance and wide temperature range testing of BGA and QFN IC's on the same footprint as our other technology sockets for the same IC. This allows different PCB's to accomplish many different test applications.
Socket Accessories (Thru-hole Options)
Pin adapters allow GHz sockets to mount on PCB where no mounting hole exist and plated thru hole exist for each contact instead of SMT pads. Ironwood's standard GHz elastomer or Spring pin sockets or other technology sockets can be mounted on male pin adapters.
