Aries Electronics, Inc. Has Announced That New Test Measurements For Its Center Probe Test Sockets Show A 30% Improvement In Bandwidth Over Earlier Tests

Aries Electronics, Inc. has announced that new test measurements for its Center Probe test sockets show a 30% improvement in bandwidth over earlier tests.

Frenchtown, NJ (PRWEB) August 28, 2021 -- Aries Electronics, Inc., an international manufacturer of standard, programmed and custom interconnection products, has announced that new test measurements for its Center Probe test sockets show a 30% improvement in bandwidth over earlier tests.

The new measurements, from the well-known independent test lab GateWave Northern, Inc., were taken from a 5.0 mm sq. MLF/QFN package, with pads on a 0.50 mm pitch. The Center Probe test sockets accommodate pitches as small as 0.50 mm and apply PCB preload when mounted.

When measured for time, the test socket had a signal delay of 15.0 ps (pico seconds), an open circuit rise time of less than 34.5 ps, a short circuit rise time of less than 30.0 ps, and a rise time through 50 Ω of less than 31.5 ps. When measured for frequency, the Center Probe had an insertion loss of less than 1 dB to 18.5 GHz , less than 3 dB to 39.7 GHz and VSWR (voltage standing wave ratio) of less than 2 :1 to 38.3 GHz.

The test lab also measured equivalent circuit parameters: pin inductance was 0.59 nH; pin-to-ground capacitance was 0.31 pF; mutual inductance was 0.338 nH; mutual capacitance was 0.12 pF; transmission line impedance was 44.9 Ω; and the electrical length of the line model was 15.0 ps. During the test, the signal path was only 1.95 mm and total probe movement was 0.584mm.

All Aries sockets are available in custom materials, platings, sizes and configurations to suit specific customer applications.

Pricing for a 20 lead MLF socket starts at $365 each for one to four pieces. Delivery is six weeks ARO.
