94GHz Clamshell BGA Socket for Micron’s 1113FBGA Quickly and easily Socket your 0.65mm pitch 43x43 array, BGA1113 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-2154 socket is designed for 29×29 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 94GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The socket is designed with clamshell lid, 15 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 lever operated compression mechanism with integrated spring loaded compression plate which allows a quick insertion method so that IC’s can be changed out quickly. To use, place the device inside the socket, close the clamshell lid and apply downward pressure by turning lever from open to test.

The GT-BGA-2154 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 1113 https://www.ironwoodelectronics.com/press/94ghz-clamshell-bga-socket-for-microns-1113/BGA, 29x29mm with 43×43 array and 0.65mm pitch.

Pricing for the GT-BGA-2154 is $2101 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
