94GHz Double Latch Socket for BGA327 Quickly and easily Socket your 0.8mm pitch 20x20 array, BGA327 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-2152 socket is designed for 17×17 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 94GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The socket is designed with center opening for air flow. 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 double latch 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, place double latch lid and apply downward pressure by turning lever from open to test.

The GT-BGA-2152 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 327 BGA, 17x17mm with 20×20 array and 0.8mm pitch.

Pricing for the GT-BGA-2152 is $1206 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
