40GHz BGA socket for 0.8mm pitch STM’s PBGA40 GHz Bandwidth Socket for STM's PBGA521

Quickly and easily Socket your 23x23mm, 0.8mm pitch ST Micro's BGA packages on any application board with performance equivalent to direct solder version

BURNSVILLE, MN - May, 2011 - Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new high performance BGA socket product line using unique elastomer capable of high speed, low inductance, high endurance and wide temperature applications. The SM-BGA-9000 socket is designed for 23X23 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 40 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The socket is also designed to dissipate 4.5 watts with heat sink compression screw and can be customized up to 100 watts with modified fin design and adding axial flow fan. The contact resistance is typically 15 milliohms per pin. The socket connects all pins with 40 GHz bandwidth on all connections. The socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses industry's smallest footprint (only 2.5mm more on each side). 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 SM-BGA-9000 socket is constructed with high performance and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -55 C to +150 C. The pin self inductance is 0.10 nH and mutual inductance of 0.007 nH. Capacitance to ground is 0.069 pF. Current capacity is 4 amps per pin. Works with IC's such as STM's PBGA, 23x23mm with 27X27 array and 0.8mm pitch.

Pricing for the SM-BGA-9000 is $1311 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
