PGA Socket / PGA Adapter

PGA socket or PGA adapter is used for PGA (Pin Grid Array) packaging chip testing. It is kind of adapter for BGA to PCB. The plug-in operation makes it convenient to exchange PGA socket and with high reliability.

  • Application: PGA
  • Nb of Pins: 50 ~ or more
  • Pitch: 0.8mm or above
