  • RF Test Sockets: The Key to the Effective Testing of High-Frequency Devices
    With rapid and constant advances in silicon technology, today's IC packages are continually changing both inside and out. The inside of the package is holding more transistors per square millimeter. The outside of the package is constantly being trimmed and reconfigured to approach the size of the
  • Socket-Adapter Systems: A Practical Test Alternative (.pdf)
    Traditional one-piece, clam¬shell-design test sockets are useful diagnostic tools for establishing or evaluating device functionality. However, they tend to be less satisfactory for validating fine-pitch packages such as ball grid ar¬ray (BGA) and land grid array (LGA), which are gaining popularity
  • Spring Pin Socket User Manual
    SS-BGA sockets provide high bandwidth in a small, cost effective ZIF socket for prototype, test and burn-in applications. SS-BGA socket is a simple, mechanical socket based on spring pin technology. SS-BGA socket is a solder-less socket that can be mounted on to a PCB using supplied hardware
  • BGA Socket Considerations - Prototype to Reality
    For many products designed with todays high-performance integrated circuits, BGA socketing systems are an essential option during the design, testing, and/or production phases of a new product development process.
