ECT Offers ZIP® Z0 and Z1 Contacts in HyperCoreTM Base Material

Nov 20, 2013

Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) announced today that the .4mm and .5mm ZIP® Z0 and Z1 performance production contacts are now available in the high-performance HyperCore™ base material.

HyperCore™ is a non-plated homogenous material specifically designed for use in semiconductor test. The proprietary material possesses properties that prevent oxidation, ensuring premium performance throughout high-volume production cycles. With its 600+ Knoop hardness, it is inert to common wear related to contacting tough device surfaces and cleaning processes.

Additionally, HyperCore™ is very conductive. Its electrical specifications are virtually unchanged when compared to gold-plated BeCu yielding premium performance even in the most severe environments.

HyperCore™ plungers are exclusively available on ECT’s high performance ZIP®
Z0 and Z1 family of contacts.


Everett Charles Technologies is a leading manufacturer of electrical test products and services, including Pogo test contacts, semiconductor test products, bare-board automatic test systems, and bare and loaded PCB test fixtures.
