Land Grid Array (LGA) Sockets

LGA Sockets for the Next Generation

Our land grid array (LGA) sockets provide compressive electrical interconnect between the processor and the printed circuit boards (PCBs). As computing power increases, so does the chips' pin counts. 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 LGA sockets feature flexible tooling that provide 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.
