Aries Electronics - Your Best Source for Interconnection and Packaging Solutions

Long-Life Hi-Frequency Sockets for BGA, LGA, QFN, MLCC, µBGA and Bumped Die Devices

Announcing significant improvements to our high-performance contact system. Using our proven Interposer Elastomer Technology, the new CORE feature internally controls compression to ensure stability with extremely low resistance values and much longer contact element life.

Low interconnect parasitics make these sockets an ideal choice for device characterization or high-volume production testing of devices, such as power amplifiers, mixers, highly integrated RF ICs, and microwave devices.

FEATURES

  • Ideally Suited for RFIC and Microwave IC Development & Test
  • Interposer Contact System – AR200 and AR300 Series Test Sockets

Insertion and Return Loss Graphs

Interposer contact system with very short interconnects (available in 1.0mm or 0.6mm thickness) enhance adjacent channel power and noise sensitivity measurements.
