These connectors are designed to provide a compressive interconnect between component leads and a printed circuit board (PCB). Our IC sockets are engineered to help simplify the board design, enabling simple reprogramming and expansion and easy repair and replacement. The design offers a cost-effective solution without the risk of direct soldering. With a wide range of solutions for land grid array (LGA) and pin grid array (PGA) sockets, this connector features contact tip geometry optimized to reduce risk of contact damage during handling and package installation.
