94GHz BGA Socket for FBGA472 Quickly and easily Socket your 1mm pitch 22x22 array, BGA472 packages on any application board with performance equivalent to direct solder version

Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new BGA socket design using high performance elastomer capable of 94GHz, very low inductance and wide temperature applications. The GT-BGA-2164 socket is designed for 23×23 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 94GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The socket is designed with screw down lid, 12 watt heat sink with fan. The contact resistance is typically 30 milliohms per pin. The socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses very small real estate allowing capacitors/resistors to be placed close by. Other passive components can be placed on the back side of PCB by creating custom cutouts in the stiffener plate. The socket is constructed with integrated spring loaded screw down heatsink lid which allows a quick insertion method so that IC’s can be changed out quickly. To use, place the device inside the socket, place the heatsink lid and apply downward pressure by screw down to hard stop on all 4 screws gradually.

The GT-BGA-2164 socket is constructed with high performance and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -55 C to +160 C. Works with IC’s such as 472 BGA, 23x23mm with 22×22 array and 1mm pitch.

Pricing for the GT-BGA-2154 is $1486 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
