EMULATION TECHNOLOGY LEVERAGES PROVEN SPRING PROBE DESIGN IN NEW TEST CLIPS

CLIP-054-T212-4-TILT2

Proven design ensures secure, non-evasive contact for Micron® TSOPII packaged ICs

SANTA CLARA, Calif, December 8, 2004 Emulation Technology, Inc. (ET), today introduces their QUAD-4 Clip™ designed to clip over surface mounted DDR SDRAM memories in the Thin Small Outline (TSOPII) package style, in pin counts of 50, 54, 66, and 86 and lead pitches of 0.80mm to 0.50mm. The
QUAD-4 Clip’s spring probe (pogo pin) design ensures mechanically accurate, non-invasive contact with TSOPII package leads. The clip enables users to access individual or multiple signals when used with a logic analyzer, oscilloscope, or other test equipment. The QUAD-4 Clip is ideal for users needing to develop, debug (hand test), program, and test (qualification and production) devices.

Secure Electrical Connection

The QUAD-4 Clip is easily attached. The clip’s unique spring probe design promotes an accurate and secure connection, which snaps (piggy-backs) onto the IC package. As the clip is placed on the device (Wire Wrap Posts probe points facing up), each package leg comes in direct contact with a spring probe, which will be spring-pressed atop the package leg for a secure electrical connection. The clip bottom is secured over the device by two
specially designed miniature side latches located on each end. The user can regulate the clip’s tightness by adjusting a miniature screw located on each side-latched end with the supplied Allen wrench. Using the Wire Wrap Posts, users connect the QUAD-4 Clip to a logic analyzer, oscilloscope, or other test equipment.

Off-the-shelf, semi-custom and custom accessories can be added to assist in connecting the QUAD-4 Clip to logic analyzers, oscilloscopes or other test equipment.

Features & Benefits

  • Secure connection ensures excellent electrical connection.
  • Silkscreen numbers on PCB aide users in matching Wire Wrap Posts to hardware contact
  • Spring probe (pogo pin) design promotes low maintenance, long life of clip
  • The clip has a low profile and is ideal for near zero keep-out area required target boards

Pricing & Availability

The test clip is available in 0.50mm and 0.80mm lead pitches. Pricing for the test clips start at $820.00 (P/N: CLIP-054-T212-4) and are available stock to five days.
