Sockets Suit BGA ICs
Designed for a 8 mm² package size, Ironwood Electronics’ SG-BGA-7121 and SG-BGA-7122 10-GHz bandwidth QFN sockets perform in 0.500-mm pitch 256-pin BGA ICs. The elastomer contactor-constructed instruments exhibit insertion loss of <1 dB, handling of up to 100 W with custom heat sink, and typical contact resistance per pin of 20 mO. The devices demonstrate pin self inductance of 0.110 nH, mutual inductance of 0.028 nH, and an operating temperature range from -40°C to 100°C. Pricing is $363.
