Sockets are a type of connector designed to integrate circuitry in small spaces. Engineered for reliable mechanical and electrical connections in communication applications including desktop PCs and servers, our electronic sockets can support current SDRAM and DDR memory generations and 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.
Electronic Sockets, Internal Circuitry, and Memory
From heat sinks to high density ball grid array (BGA) sockets and micro subscriber identity modules (SIM) cards, our portfolio of electronic sockets includes solutions for connecting, sharing, and storing data in electronic devices that are increasing smaller and meeting memory demands. At TE, we design and manufacture reliable electronic components for internal memory and circuitry.
