Aries Intros High-Temp QFP/QFN Test Sockets
Hi-temp test sockets.
Bristol, PA — Aries Electronics has introduced its new 250°C QFP/QFN Test Sockets. The new contact strip sockets are suitable for testing devices in need of high-temp testing as well as "down-hole" devices. While ordinary test socket performance made from industry standard BeCu contacts roll off sharply after 150°C, these new sockets perform up to 250°C.

The sockets are fully customizable, with machined bodies available in virtually any size, on lead pitches of 0.4mm and higher. The contact material is stainless steel, which offers a very low inductance (0.01nH) signal path in addition to the high-temperature rating. It is rated to at least 19Ghz (-1dB) and has an estimated life of about 500k cycles.

The insulator material is machined PEEK which incorporates a proprietary high-temperature bonding material that adheres to the contact strips onto the socket frame. The contact strips are readily available and user replaceable for easy field maintenance. Any peripherally leaded devices — such as QFN/QFP/MLF/SSOP — can be accommodated within this socket. GND leads and center pads are also available.
