A new high-performance BGA socket for 1-mm pitch, 543-pin BGA ICs called the SG-BGA-6485 socket is designed for 23×32-mm IC packages and operates at bandwidths up to 27 GHz with less than 1 dB of insertion loss. The contact resistance is typically 20 mΩ per pin. The socket connects all pins with 27-GHz bandwidth on all connections. The socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering and uses the industry’s smallest footprint. The socket is constructed with a swivel lid for easy chip replacement. The socket comes with ball guide for the precise alignment of BGA balls to PCB pads.
The SG-BGA-6485 socket is constructed with high-performance and low-inductance elastomer contactors. The temperature range is -35 to +125°C. The pin self-inductance is 0.15 nH and mutual inductance of 0.025 nH. Capacitance-to-ground is 0.01 pF. Current capacity is 2 A per pin. The socket works with memory devices such as the 543BGA, 23×32-mm rectangular package with a 21×26 array and 1-mm pitch.
Pricing for the SG-BGA-6485 is $936 at qty 1 with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
