Stamped Spring Pin Socket for NAND Flash Memory Socket your BGA24 using Extreme Temperature Socket with Superior Electrical Performance

Ironwood Electronics recently introduced a new socket addressing high performance requirements for testing NAND Flash memory devices – SBT-BGA-6572. The contactor is a stamped spring pin with 31 gram actuation force per ball and cycle life of 125,000 insertions. The self inductance of the contactor is 0.88 nH, insertion loss of < 1 dB at 15.7 GHz and capacitance 0.097pF. The current capacity of each contactor is 4 amps (60C rise). Socket temperature range is -55C to +180C. Socket features a floating guide for precise ball to pin alignment. Socket also features open top lid allowing device top surface to reach specific temperature very quickly by forced air heating. The specific configuration of the package to be tested in the SBT-BGA-6572 is BGA, 8x6mm body size, 1.0mm pitch and 5×5 ball array. To use, drop IC into the socket and place compression open top lid. Down force is applied by torqueing 4 screws on the periphery in zig-zag manner. This socket can be used for hand test and quick turn custom burn-in applications with the most stringent requirements.

Pricing for the SBT-BGA-6572 is $495 at qty 1 with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
