Today, we are going to talk about lids.
Lids are critical to the effectiveness of a test socket since they provide the contact force required to test your device under test. But did you know that multiple lid styles can be used with the same socket body to meet a variety of test applications?
A single test socket body can be used with an open-top lid for failure analysis. A quick swap with a clip-on lid for engineering and low-volume production test and even with a fully customized lid with design features specific to your requirements. A simple change of lids can transform your test socket to fulfill any of your test needs.
Lids can be customized, integrate thermal couples, heating or cooling blocks, relief cutouts for SMT components. Even integrate a PCB with spring pin contacts to probe devices with test points on the top and bottom.
