LGA Socket Technology from Neoconix
Moore’s Law continues to drive the size, speed and complexity of today’s semiconductor solutions. With ever increasing speed comes the need to rapidly move data on and off chip. To accomplish this goal, semiconductor suppliers have significantly increased the number of pins on their devices.
The continual drive to increase speed and performance has also had the effect of driving significant complexity and cost of the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) these devices are placed upon. Therefore, the cost of the silicon as well as the PCBs have gone up exponentially.
LGA sockets provide Designers and Manufacturing Engineers the following benefits;
|•||Pad surfaces on both the LGA device and the main-board simplifies design|
|•||Solderless connection between the socket and the LGA device, providing ease of installation and removal of the LGA device|
|•||Minimizes CTE mismatch between LGA device and main-board|
|•||Allows upgrade path|
|•||Reduces scrap costs|
