Sockets by Contact Technology

Sockets by Type

94 Ghz GTP BGA socket for 0.50mm pitch BGA176

Silver Button Sockets (GT/GTP)

BGA, QFN and LGA sockets using GT/GTP contact technology provide >94GHz signal speed in the smallest footprint for Engineering/ATE and test pitches from 0.2mm to 1.27mm. Standard sizes typically ship within 5 days ARO.


GHz Elastomer Sockets

GHz Elastomer Sockets (SG/CG)

SG BGA sockets & QFN/MLF sockets provide excellent signal integrity in a small, cost effective ZIF socket for prototype and test applications. It uses embedded wire in elastomer contact for transmitting signals effectively. Our sockets support pitches down to 0.3mm.


44GHz BGA socket for 0.5mm pitch QFN48

Silver Ball Matrix Sockets (SM/SMP)

BGA sockets and QFN sockets utilize unique elastomer contact (SM/SMP) that operates at high bandwidth (>40GHz), high temperature (150C) as well as high endurance cycles (500K). Solutions are available for 0.25mm to 1.27mm LGA, BGA, QFN, CSP, POP, WLP and other packages.


292BGA 0.8mm pitch BGA spring pin socket

Stamped Spring Pin Sockets (SBT/CBT)

SBT BGA sockets simplify lab and evaluation applications due to low cost and better electrical/mechanical performance than conventional pogo pin. SBT QFN sockets with wide temperature range are available in the same footprint as elastomer QFN sockets.


Socket Accessories (SMT Options)

Socket Accessories (SMT Options)

BGA adapters and QFN adapters allow BGA sockets and QFN scokets to mount on PCB where no mounting holes exist and SMT pads exist for each contact. Ironwood's standard elastomer or Spring Pin BGA sockets can be mounted on SMT adapters.


Socket Accessories (thru-hole options)

Socket Accessories (thru-hole options)

Pin adapters allow BGA sockets and QFN sockets to mount on PCB where no mounting holes exist and plated thru hole exist for each contact instead of SMT pads. Ironwood's standard elastomer or Spring pin BGA sockets or other technology BGA sockets can be mounted on male pin adapters.


Socket Accessories (Lid/Tool Options)

Socket Accessories (Lid/Tool Options)

GHz elastomer, spring pin and other BGA socket and QFN socket technologies can accommodate different lid options depending upon the application requirement. Typical choices are swivel lid, clamshell lid, double latch lid, heat sink lid, lever actuated lid, etc. Custom lid solutions can be delivered in days.
