Test Sockets Handle Frequencies Up To 23 GHz

The pogo-pin based ET 2300 socket system operates at frequencies up to 23 GHz with an insertion loss of -1 dB. It allows users to test and debug any BGA, QFN, or other custom packages with lead pitches down to 0.5 mm. Applications include development, debug, hand test, programming, test of ASIC or FPGA’s, package and chip qualification, production prototype, failure analysis, and high volume production use. Available in compression-mount, surface-mount, and through-hole versions, the sockets’ design is unique in that the retention systems are interchangeable, provides for die probing, has built in pressure plates, and requires less real estate on each side of the chip than comparable socket systems. Price for an ET 2300 compression-mount socket with Easy Knob retention system for 0.8-mm pitch and 256 pins starts at $1,280. EMULATION TECHNOLOGY INC., Santa Clara, CA. (800) 232-7837.
