BGA Test Sockets Employ Novel Design

The company's BGA and mBGA Quick Lock Sockets rely on a unique cover design that promises both easy and swift access to the device without the need for tools to actuate or secure the lid. Once the socket base is in place, the test device installs into the device well. Users pinch the lever with thumb and forefinger to open the clasps, place the cover over the socket base, and release the clasps on the cover. The sockets are available in all grid sizes and pin pitches of 0.5, 0.65, 0.75, 0.8, 1, and 1.27 mm. Mounting styles include, through-hole, surface mount, and solderless compression fit. Other features include a contact and retention-system life of 10,000 cycles minimum and an individual contact force of 40g maximum. Pricing for the BGA Quick Lock solderless-compression-socket starts at $846 each. EMULATION TECHNOLOGY INC., Santa Clara, CA. (800) 232-7837.
