27 GHz Bandwidth Socket for BGA1600 Quickly and easily Socket your 42.5mm square, 1mm pitch BGA packages on any PCB without significant performance loss

Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new high performance BGA socket for 1mm pitch, 1600 pin BGA IC’s. The SG-BGA-6433 socket is designed for IC size – 42.5×42.5mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 27 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The sockets are designed to dissipate 60 watts using a heatsink compression screw with axial flow fan. 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 on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses industry’s smallest footprint. The socket is constructed with shoulder screw and swivel lid which incorporates a quick insertion method so that IC’s can be changed out quickly. The socket comes with ball guide for the precise alignment of BGA balls to PCB pads.

The SG-BGA-6433 socket is constructed with high performance and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -35 C 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. Works with IC’s such as 1600BGA, 42.5mm square package with 40×40 array and 1mm pitch.

Pricing for the SG-BGA-6433 is $1087 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
