Emulation Technology, Inc.
Provides for easy insertion and removal of 0.50mm chip packages
SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 22, 2002 -Emulation Technology (ET), the industry's leading manufacturer and marketer of Adapters, Sockets and Interconnect Solutions has expanded its broad line of testing accessories with its newly released 0.50mm lead pitch Ball Grid Array (BGA), Chip-Scale Package (CSP), Micro Ball Grid Array (µBGA), and Land Grid Array (LGA) production and development sockets. In response to the semiconductor industry's constant migration toward smaller packages, higher I/0 counts and tighter lead pitches, ET has introduced these sockets as an extension to their line of high performance production and development sockets with lead pitches currently available in 0.75mm, 0.80mm, 1.00mm, 1.27mm, 1.50mm lead pitch. The new 0.50mm lead pitch sockets are designed for engineers working in development, debug, programming, qualification, production and test needing a finer-pitch production or development socket solution
Why use these sockets?
These sockets are available in Surface Mount, Thru-hole and Solderless styles, and feature Screw Lock, Knob Lock, or ZIF Lock retention lids. While the application will dictate which type of lid to use, all three retention lids guarantee contact continuity and ease of chip insertion and removal. These sockets help engineers reduce time to market by allowing chip packages to be easily changed during the development process. Once the socket is soldered to the target printed circuit board, the chip package can be changed in a matter of seconds. Other notable features and benefits of these sockets include:
Price and Availability
0.50mm lead pitch Surface Mount sockets with Screw Lock retention lids are priced at $256.00, for 100 pin sockets in 10 piece quantities; 0.50mm lead pitch Thru-hole sockets with Screw Lock retention lids are priced at $320.00, for 100 pin sockets in 10 piece quantities. Delivery is available in 5-6 weeks.
