8 GHz Bandwidth Socket for Intel's ICH6 (I/O Controller Hub 6) BGA Package

Apr 06, 2011

Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new high performance BGA socket for 1.118mm pitch, 729 pin BGA IC's. The SG-BGA-6345 socket is designed for 31X31 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 8 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss.

Quickly and easily Socket your 31x31mm, 1.118mm pitch Intel BGA packages on any PCB without significant performance 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 connects all pins with 8 GHz bandwidth on all connections. The socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses industry's smallest footprint (only 2.5mm more on each side). The socket is constructed with shoulder screw and swivel lid which incorporates a quick insertion method so that IC's can be changed out quickly.

The SG-BGA-6345 socket is constructed with high performance and low inductance elastomer contactor. The temperature range is -35 C to +100 C. The pin self inductance is 0.15 nH and mutual inductance of 0.025 nH. Capacitance to ground is 0.01 pF. Current capacity is 2 amps per pin. Works with IC's such as Intel ICH6 BGA, 31X31mm with 27X27 array and 1.118mm pitch.

Pricing for the SG-BGA-6345 is $853 at qty 1; with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
