The CBT-BGA-7002 debuts as a double stacked socket addressing the performance requirements for testing a processor and memory simultaneously. Its contactor is a stamped spring pin with a 26g actuation force per ball with a cycle life of 500,000 insertions. Self inductance of the contactor is 0.88 nH, insertion loss is less than 1 dB at 15.7 GHz, and capacitance is 0.097 pF. Current capacity of each contactor is 4A at an 80°C temperature rise while socket temperature range is -55°C to +180°C. The socket also features a floating guide for precise ball-to-pin alignment. Pricing for the CBT-BGA-7002 is $1,678 each. IRONWOOD ELECTRONICS, Burnsville, MN. (800) 404-0204.
