Everett Charles Technologies’ (ECT) Contact Products Group (CPG) will showcase the latest additions to its ZIP® family of flat technology Pogo® pins in its distributor, Tronic Electronics HK Ltd.’s, Booth 2452 Hall 2 at the upcoming Semicon China Exhibition, scheduled to take place March 15-17, 2011 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, China. A new eight-page ZIP® Product Portfolio brochure will be available for the first time at the ECT CPG booth. ZIP® recently has been granted US Patent Number 7,862,391.
In addition to the ZIP® family, ECT’s Contact Products Group will feature its expanded line of available pitches from 0.8 to 0.2 mm center spacing. ECT also will highlight the high-performance Bantam®, the pin of choice for the most demanding test applications; the Mini-Mite™, for higher current and consistent C-res requirements; and the CSP series, for a variety of double-ended Pogo technology applications with drop-in compatibility for many competitor test probes. ECT CPG personnel will be on hand to demonstrate the company’s latest technologies and answer customer inquiries related to its new range of products including:
ZIP® SCRUB™ ― The ZIP® SCRUB pin features a positive scrub-action pad and ball contact on lead-free plated array and peripheral devices where solder transfer causes frequent cleaning and maintenance cycles.
ZIP® KELVIN ― ECT’s ZIP® KELVIN is ideal for voltage sensitive device tests on array or peripheral devices requiring sub-1 ohm resistance measurements typical in RDSON and high-power applications.
ZIP® SUPER SHORT ― The SUPER SHORT is designed for 0.5 nH low impedance, high-frequency testing.
ZIP® Long-Travel ― The ZIP® Long-Travel, with an OAL up to 6.7 mm, was developed for contacting large devices and strip tests where planarity and compliance are an issue.
Z8 ―The Z8 is suited for burn-in applications and combines the performance features of the standard ZIP® in a burn-in-price-point replaceable compliant pin.
The ZIP® patented 2-D design features planar contact surfaces fabricated by a unique manufacturing process, delivering performance and cost advantages. The ZIP® Series is designed to meet today’s demanding test requirements and economics.
