Socket Supports Opto DFNs

The SG-MLF-7059 socket houses 10-pin, 0.5-mm pitch Optical DFN packages measuring 3.5 mm x 2.1 mm x 0.65 mm and operates at bandwidths up to 10 GHz with less than 1 dB of insertion loss. Contact resistance is typically 20 m? per pin. The socket connects all pins with 10 GHz bandwidth on all connections. Other features include a low-inductance elastomer contactor, operating temperature range from -35°C to +100°C, pin self inductance of 0.15 nH, mutual inductance of 0.025 nH, capacitance to ground of 0.01 pF, and a current rating of 2A per pin. Pricing for the SG-MLF-7059 is $252 each. IRONWOOD ELECTRONICS, Burnsville, MN. (800) 404-0204.
