27 GHz Bandwidth Socket for 0.75mm Pitch memory devices Socket your 180 pin BGA packages on any PCB without significant performance loss and with no soldering and no mounting hardware or screws

Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new high performance BGA socket for 0.75mm pitch BGA 180 pin memory device. The SG-BGA-6511 socket is designed for a JC11 MO328 variation PBGA-B180 package and operates at bandwidths up to 27 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The sockets are designed to dissipate up to several watts without extra heat sinking and can handle up to 100 watts with custom heat sink. The contact resistance is typically 20 milliohms per pin. The socket connects all pins with 27 GHz bandwidth on all connections. The socket is mounted with a patented technology that allows for mounting with no holes in the target PCB, no soldering, and minimal footprint. It can be mounted on any existing PCB with our exclusive placement/epoxy system.

The SG-BGA-6511 sockets are constructed with high performance and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -35 C to +125 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. Works with memory IC’s such as PBGA180, 12x14x1.1mm with 0.75mm pitch and 14×18 ball array.

Pricing for the SG-BGA-6511 is $498 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
