IRONWOOD ELECTRONICS Switch Device Socket is constructed with high performance and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -55 C to +150 C. The pin self-inductance is 0.10nH and mutual inductance of 0.007nH. Capacitance to ground is 0.069pF. Current capacity is 4 amps per pin and operates at bandwidths up to 40GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. Socket is also designed to dissipate 55 watts with unique spring loaded compression heatsink and axial flow fan.
