94GHz BGA socket has aluminum components for heat dissipation
Stephen LawElectronics Interconnect Interconnect socket
IRONWOOD ELECTRONICS GT-BGA-2175 BGA socket design uses high performance elastomer capable of 94GHz, low inductance and wide temperature applications. The socket is designed for 27x27mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 94GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The socket is designed with aluminum components for heat dissipation and can be customized with fins and axial flow fan for further power dissipation. The contact resistance is typically 30 milliohms per pin. The socket is mounted on the target pcb with no soldering, and uses very small real estate allowing capacitors/resistors to be placed close by. Other passive components can be placed on the back side of pcb by creating custom cut-outs in the stiffener plate. Device is constructed with swivel lid which allows a quick insertion method so that IC’s can be changed out quickly. To use, place the device inside the socket, swivel the lid and apply downward pressure by torqueing the compression screw. Productis constructed with high performance and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -55 C to +160 C. Works with IC’s such as 676 BGA, 27x27mm with 26×26 array and 1mm pitch.
