SOCKETS LIDS

Complete your test socket solution with a dynamic lid designed to suit your test configuration. Many lid types can be used with the same test socket body allowing the socket to be used across multiple test applications.

LID DESIGN

Custom lids offer the most flexibility to design, material, interface types and accessibility to your DUT/UUT.

Design Socket Lids to Your Needs

Lids provide the compression force required to make electrical contact between the DUT and electrical contact set (I.e. Pogo pins, Elastomer, etc.) Our test socket lids are tailored to your device and test applications with adjustable z-axis pressure platesvery low-profiles, open-tops, dual latches for quick swap or integrated clamshell designs. Our socket lids are dynamic, and one of our test sockets can accept multiple lid designs. Simply change the lid style and watch as your socket changes from a failure analysis socket to a low-volume engineering or production test socket.

    Device Level Access

    • Very low-profile open-top lids offer visibility to decapsulated parts 
    • Only millimeters thick, open-top lids let you get closer to your device when used under a scope 
    • Quartz and Sapphire glass windows apply compression force to WLCSP and bare die devices requiring 100% DUT visibility 
    • Made with anodized aluminum or stainless steel depending on size and pin count of DUT 
    • Custom machined openings in the lid for access to specific areas over larger DUTs 

    Integrated Thermal Control

    • Built-in Ni or Cu blocks make direct contact with the DUT 
    • Thermocouples contact the DUT for device level temperature monitoring 
    • Mates with an RTI benchtop temperature controller for active heating 
    • Incorporated fans for passive air cooling 
    • Openings at specific areas in the lid for forced air cooling applications 
    • Openings in the sides of the lid for additional airflow 
    • Floating pressure plates ensure contact sets are not over compressed 

    Built-In Contacts

    • Pogo pins can be installed to contact test points on the topside of a UUT 
    • Interposer PCB’s installed within the lid route signals out to pads that contact pins in the socket body 
    • RF sensitive materials available for UUT’s with antennas 
    • High speed coaxial connectors and other surface mount connectors installed on a PCB incorporated into the lid 
    • Custom wiring available in the lid
