Low-cost socketing system for high-end ICs

Expanding on its 2go range, connector manufacturer GTK has released a low cost IC socketing system in the form of the Turned Pin IC socket. The parts, which are RoHS-compliant, are more reliable than conventional stamped and formed pin sockets due to a more robust contact construction. This is said to enable a safe and cost-effective system for socketing expensive ICs or holding the firmware during the debugging phase of a new design.
The sockets are manufactured with a high quality 4-finger gold-plated contact in the pin, thereby greatly reducing contact resistance to a maximum of 10mΩ. Usually installed on a PCB, GTK’s Turned Pin IC sockets allow the user to remove the package only when necessary, and can provide an interface between a PCB and a test instrument. Compliant with UL94V-0 flammability rating, parts withstand a temperature range of -55 to +125degC and offer an insulation resistance of minimum of 1000MW at 500Vdc. Displaying a low profile( 4.2mm) and an open frame, devices also feature an anti-wicking construction designed to reduce solder failures. All sizes between 6 to 40-way are held in stock and supplied tube-packed for added protection.

The company guarantees full assistance from technical and applications support to drawings and specifications, and to supply samples and volume stock within 24 hours.
