This type of connector is designed to integrate circuitry in small spaces. Engineered for reliable mechanical and electrical connections in communication applications including desktop PCs and servers, these sockets support the current SDRAM and DDR memory generations and the new DDR2, DDR3, and DDR4 as well as FBDIMM generations. Our portfolio includes vertical, right-angle, and various-angled configurations in solder tail, press fit, and surface-mount (SMT) mounting options. On complex printed circuits, which are too valuable to risk direct soldering to expensive integrated circuits (ICs), our IC sockets simplify board design, enabling quick repair or replacement. The result is lower service costs, simple reprogramming, future expansion, factory testing and burn-in, and manufacturing ease.
