Aries Electronics (Bristol, PA) announced the introduction of its unique Protect-A Probe, anti-diffusion, gold coating for its complete line of burn-in and test socket spring probes. The Protect-A Probe coating is designed to lessen or eliminate the need for probe cleaning by applying its proprietary, anti-diffusion, gold coating onto the probe before assembly. This coating, once applied, acts like a “Teflon” barrier preventing solder and other debris from adhering to the probe tip. This lessens (or eliminates) cleaning. Features include:
• Successful test with an IC which had SAC405 balls on 0.35mm pitch for over 1500 hours at 150°C.
• Availability for the Aries’ complete line of spring-probe, standard and custom test and Burn-in Sockets.
