Ironwood Electronics has introduced a BGA socket design using high performance elastomer capable of 75GHz, very low inductance and wide temperature applications. The GTL-BGA-6007 socket is designed for 35×35 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 75GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. 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 Open top lid which allows access to center of the device. To use, place the device inside the socket, close the lid and apply specified torque on each lid mounting screw gradually.
The GTL-BGA-6007 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 BGA, 35x35mm with 34×34 array and 1mm pitch.
Pricing for the GTL-BGA-6007 is $3808 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
