BGA Prototyping Adapter with 500K Spring Pin Socket Simplifies Device Test

BURNSVILLE, MN - August, 2009 - Design engineers using 0.075" pitch 117 position BGA ICs will be interested in the PA-BGA117C-P-S-01 prototyping adapter from Ironwood Electronics. This adapter is a part of Ironwood Electronics' high performance prototyping adapter product line that allows quick prototyping of BGA ICs. A clam-shell spring pin ZIF socket (SS-BGA117C-01 sold separately) can be used with the prototyping adapter which provides easy access to address and data lines and simplifies IC swap out. This adapter interfaces the 117 position 0.075" pitch BGA SMT land pattern to a 0.100" center pin grid array (PGA). PA-BGA117C-P-S-01 is constructed with gold plated solder-tail machined pins for maximum reliability when the adapter is plugged into a receptacle or soldered down to PCB. Optionally, the adapters can be supplied with wire-wrap pins so the prototype can be built on very inexpensive wire-wrap panels.

The SS-BGA117C-01 operates at bandwidths up to 10 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The sockets are designed to dissipate up to several watts without extra heat sinking and can handle up to 100 watts with custom heat sink. The self inductance of the contactor is typically 0.62nH per pin. The socket connects all pins with 10+ GHz bandwidth on all connections.

The SS-BGA117C-01 is constructed with high performance and low inductance Spring Pins (pogo) with 500,000 insertion capability. There is 30 grams of force on each ball when IC is inserted and lid is actuated. The temperature range is -40 C to +150 C. Current capacity on each contactor is 4 amps at ambient temperature. User simply drops in BGA chip, turns screw, and start testing.

The PA-BGA117C-P-S-01 (BGA prototyping adapter) is available immediately at $190.00 each at quantity 1-10 and reduced pricing available on higher quantities. The SS-BGA117C-01 (Clamshell spring pin BGA socket) is available immediately at $1288.00 each at quantity 1-10 and reduced pricing available on higher quantities.
