LGA775 processor socket targets PCI Express

Keywords:Gina Roos? FCI? LGA775? processor socket? PCI Express?

FCI has developed a Pb-free, 775-position LGA775 processor socket for PCI Express signaling in desktop PCs.

The LGA775 processor socket combines FCI's ball grid array (BGA) technology for motherboard attachment with a land grid array (LGA) interface to the microprocessor. The socket performs as a low inductance device (<4nH) with <1pF capacitance pin-to-pin to optimize the processor's high-speed electrical performance.

The LGA775 socket also provides a low normal force contact with wiping action that produces reliable electrical performance. A pre-installed pickup cover is said to facilitate placement using conventional pick-and-place equipment while the use of BGA termination technology allows the socket assembly to self-center on the PC-board pads as well as self-level in the z-axis direction. An integrated lever system is used to actuate the socket when the chip has been seated properly. The socket is RoHS compliant and compatible with lead-free processing temperatures.

Pricing is below $4. Delivery is typically two weeks.
