Test Socket Makes Contact on Two Sides of a Laminated Substrate
Thu, 05/08/2008 - 8:43am
The 63069-013A-2 test socket is designed to make contact on two sides of a laminated substrate, a device used in an implantable pacemaker/defibrillator assembly. The socket utilizes double-ended spring probes and a double-sided PCB with gold-plated circuitry to translate signals from the top side of the substrate to the socket base, resulting in a practical test board mounting method. Complex medical IC substrates require intricate socket designs to facilitate rigid test and burn-in requirements.
