Production Test Socket for BGA30
Ironwood Electronics (Eagan, MN) has introduced
a stamped spring pin socket addressing high
performance requirements for testing BGA30 - CBT-
BGA-7027. The contactor is a stamped spring pin with
31 g actuation force per ball and cycle life of 500,000
insertions. Features include:
■ A contactor self-inductance of 0.88 nH.
■ An insertion loss < 1 dB at 15. 7 GHz.
■ A capacitance of 0.097 pF.
■ A current capacity of each contactor of 4 A at 40°C
■ A socket temperature range from -55° to +180°C.
■ A double latch lid.
■ An integrated compression plate for vertical force
without distorting device position.
CAMI Research (Acton, MA) has announced a connector
board for its CableEye cable and harness testing systems.
Populated with eight, shielded RJ45 connectors, the boards
may be used to test shielded or unshielded cables. Hipot
rated to 500 VDC/350 VAC, the CB18C may be used on all
CableEye models. Features include:
■ A set of two boards with expander cable.
■ The ability to accept eight shielded RJ45 connectors via
quick-change, press-fit connectors.
■ A kit of 16 spare industry-standard
Diodes Incorporated (Plano, TX) has announced
the P3785T AC-DC primary-side switched-mode
power supply controller. The controller is aimed at 8
to 15 W, 5 V output USB chargers that necessitate
ultra-low standby power. Features include:
■ A no-load input power rating of less than 10 m W.
■ Valley-on operation and a low VCS jitter
■ Multiple PWM/PFM control modes.
■ Over-voltage protection, output short-circuit
protection, and transformer saturation protection
(via primary peak-current limitation).
■ Internal temperature protection.
■ A dedicated pin to
