QFN Socket Supports 0.65-mm Pitch Devices at High Temp Range

Ironwood Electronics has introduced a new performance QFN socket for 0.65mm pitch devices. The SS-QFN204A-01 socket, designed for a 12mm package size, operates at bandwidths up to 6.5 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. Designed for up to 500,000 actuation cycles, the socket is able to dissipate up to 4 watts over a temperature range of Ironwood Electronics C16902b_highres-40 C to +150 C without the need for an additional heat sink. This is all accomplished within a 2.5mm larger border. It accommodates a chip with 204 pins plus ground pad in the center of the QFN is contacted with additional spring pins for highest bandwidth interface.

The SS-QFN204A-01 socket utilizes high endurance spring pins, which allow for product use in multiple applications including burn-in, production test, and prototype development. In addition to its wide temperature range and high endurance the pin operates with an inductance of 1.3 nH and with a capacitance to ground of 0.53 pF. Current carrying capacity is 1.5 amps per pin. Normal force for actuation is only 16gms per pin with a typical contact resistance of 82 mΩ. Pricing for the SS-QFN204A-01 socket is $1,905 at quantity 1 with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.

Test Adapter for 0.5-mm Pitch LGA20

Ironwood Electronics recently introduced the PB-LGA20A-Z-01 Socket Probe Adapter, which is intended for the high-speed testing of LGA devices while accessing the signals using testers via header pins. The socket probe adapter is designed to interface with 0.5-mm pitch Fine pitch Land Grid Array (LGA) packages.C14646a Ironwood

The PB-LGA20A-Z-01’s features include:

  • shortest possible trace length for maximum speed
  • low inductance
  • low capacitance
  • blind and buried via PCB design technology

The PB-LGA20A-Z-01 test adapter costs $1,499. The LGA socket is also available individually.
