Ironwood Electronics BGA socket – CBT-BGA-7027 is designed for 0.65 mm pitch, 11.2×4.725mm package size with 30 balls and operates at bandwidths up to 15.7 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The sockets are designed to dissipate up to several watts without extra heat sinking and can handle up to 100 watts with custom heat sink. The contact resistance is typically 20 milliohms per pin. The socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses floating guide for precise alignment of BGA balls. The socket is constructed with integrated spring loaded compression plate and double latch lid which incorporates a quick insertion method so that IC’s can be changed out quickly.
