A new high-performance BGA socket for 0.65-mm pitch BGA 625 pin devices called the CG-BGA-5032 is designed for the 16×16-mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 30 GHz with less than 1 dB of insertion loss. The socket is designed with an easy-open double latch clamshell lid with an integrated compression mechanism. The contact resistance is typically 20 mΩ/pin. The socket connects all pins with 30-GHz bandwidth on all connections.
The socket is mounted using supplied hardware on the target PCB with no soldering and uses the smallest footprint in the industry. The footprint allows inductors, resistors and decoupling capacitors to sit close to the device for impedance tuning. The socket lid has an integrated torque screw for applying proper force for device compression on to elastomer.
The CG-BGA-5032 socket is constructed with a high-performance and low-inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -35 to +125°C. The pin self inductance is 0.11 nH and mutual inductance of 0.028 nH. Capacitance to ground is 0.028 pF. Current capacity is 2 A/pin.
Pricing for the CG-BGA-5032 is $1,112 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on the quantity required.
