27GHz bandwidth socket serves Intel Atom processor
Stephen LawElectronics Interconnect BGA Interconnect socket
IRONWOOD ELECTRONICS SG-BGA-6513 high performance BGA socket for 0.8mm interstitial pitch BGA 676 ball device. Device is designed for a Intel’s Atom processor and operates at bandwidths up to 27GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. Devices are designed to dissipate up to several watts without extra heat sinking and can handle up to 100 watts with custom heat sink. The contact resistance is typically 20 milliohms per pin. Device connects all pins with 27GHz bandwidth on all connections. Device is mounted using supplied hardware on the target pcb with no soldering, and uses smallest footprint in the industry. The smallest footprint allows inductors, resistors and decoupling capacitors to be placed very close to the device for impedance tuning. The socket also incorporates a simple hardware installation method so that IC’s can be changed out quickly.
