Prototyping Adapter With 500K Spring Pin Socket Simplifies Device Test

Design engineers using 0.075" pitch 117 position BGA ICs will be interested in the PA-BGA117C-P-S-01 prototyping adapter. A clam-shell spring pin ZIF socket (SS-BGA117C-01 sold separately) can be used with the adapter, which provides easy access to address and data lines and simplifies IC swap out. The adapter interfaces the 117 position 0.075" pitch BGA SMT land pattern to a 0.1" center pin grid array (PGA), constructed with gold plated solder-tail machined pins for maximum reliability when the adapter is plugged into a receptacle or soldered down to PCB. Optionally, the adapters can be supplied with wire-wrap pins so the prototype can be built on inexpensive wire-wrap panels.
