Land Grid Array (LGA) Sockets

Ease of Soldering and Positioning

Our LGA sockets provide a compressive electrical interconnect between the processor and the printed circuit board (PCB). As computing power increases, chips’ pin count are increasing. A robust bolster plate provides a reliable interconnection to the microprocessor package and limits PCB bowing during compression to ensure a reliable connection. The contact tip geometry is optimized to reduce risk of contact damage during handling and package installation. Our flexible tooling provides high-quality, fast turnaround time for prototypes so sockets can be in your hands at the earliest stages of your program.

Product Features:

LGA Sockets
  • Socket housing facilitates efficient soldering to the PCB.
  • Socket is supplied with a cap to facilitate vacuum pick and place.
  • Backplates are available in zinc or nickel plating.
XLA Sockets
Our distinctive new XLA socket technology provides more reliable performance with warpage 78% better than traditional molded LGA sockets. This socket is made with printed circuit board (PCB) substrate instead of other plastic materials, which means the socket does not warp differently than the PCB to which it is mounted. This warpage control allows for 33% better true positioning when the socket is mounted to the PCB and when the processor is installed in the socket. XLA socket technology offers scalability for pin counts up to 10,000+ positions, enabling the largest one piece socket in the market. With capability up to 56Gbps data rates, the XLA socket is a great combination of speed and size.

LGA Sockets

LGA sockets

LGA sockets are the latest socket technology for Intel- and AMD-based LGA microprocessor packages that range in size up to 3647 pins. This generation of LGA sockets provides a compressive electrical interface to the microprocessor package and are solder ball, surface mount attached to the PCB. The stainless steel load plate provides a reliable interconnection to the microprocessor package with a single lever handle for package actuation. The contact tip geometry is optimized to reduce risk of contact damage during handling and package installation.
