Socket your 256 pin BGA packages without significant performance loss and with minimal increase in PC Board footprint
BURNSVILLE, MN - February, 2007 - Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new high performance and high endurance BGA socket for 1.0mm pitch BGA chips such as the Renesas 256 PBGA and Cypress 256 FBGA - the SS-BGA256E-01. The SS-BGA256E-01, operates at bandwidths up to 10 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The sockets are designed to dissipate up to seven 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-BGA256E-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.
Pricing for the SS-BGA256E-01 $1598 at quantity 1 with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
