Ironwood Electronics Debuts Socket for 1.0 mm Pitch AMD 16-038 IC

1/7/2004 - Ironwood Electronics’ new high performance Socket – SG-BGA-6099 allow 1.0 mm pitch AMD 16-038 IC’s to be used in socket and operate without compromising performance in very high speed computing and communication applications. The new 6.5 GHz bandwidth sockets easily support very dense BGA stacked devices utilizing a high performance conductive elastomer contactor. The contact resistance is normally 10 milliohms. The sockets have a precision design, which guides the IC to the exact position for connection of each ball and uses an aluminum heat sink screw to provide compressive force. The socket shown in the picture is SG-BGA-6099 for 31 mm IC body size. The socket accommodates IC packages such as the AMD 16-038 BGA, 1.0 mm pitch, and 29X29 arrays with up to 829 balls.

These patented ZIF sockets are simply mechanically mounted to the target PCB. The sockets are 7.5 mm high and only 2.5 mm per side larger than the actual IC packages, minimizing footprint on system boards while maximizing system speeds. The socket is designed to dissipate up to 8 watts with a compact finned aluminum heatsink. The heatsink is designed for mounting on off the shelf muffin fan.

Pricing for the socket SG-BGA-6099 is $615.00 at quantity 100.
