Aries Electronics - Your Best Source for Interconnection and Packaging Solutions
 

Corporate History

 Aries Electronics Headquarters in Bristol, Pennsylvania

Aries Electronics, incorporated in 1972, began when the William “Bill” Sinclair purchased the back panel line from Thomas & Betts Corporation. The line included IC sockets, headers, and printed circuit cards. Under Bill’s vision, Aries expanded the line to encompass a wide variety of packaging products, including sockets, headers and covers, programmable devices and a variety of jumper and cable assemblies.

Aries has become established in the industry as a major source for unique connector products that solve a wide variety of packaging problems.

Aries is the recognized industry leader in ZIF (Zero-Insertion-Force) Test Sockets for DIP, PGA, PLCC, and SOIC devices, and continues to be a significant source for a wide variety of specialty electronic connectors.

In recent years, the company has made major inroads in the market for high-temperature sockets and flexible cable products. The addition of the Correct-A-Chip® product line established the company as a major source for “intelligent connectors” (incorporating other components, both passive and active), adapters (connectors that allow the use of one termination style on a board designed for a different termination style).

Most recently, the company has developed and patented several concepts for BGA (ball grid array) and LGA (land grid array) sockets, and has acquired a high-frequency test and burn-in socket line, furthering growth in the test socket market.
