What are IC Sockets used for?
A semiconductor IC socket, also known as an integrated circuit socket or IC socket, is a device designed to provide a temporary or permanent connection between an integrated circuit (IC) and a circuit board. It consists of a socket with a series of electrical contacts or pins that match the configuration of the IC package. The main purpose of using a semiconductor IC socket is to facilitate the easy insertion, removal, and replacement of ICs in electronic circuits. They are typically used for Testing and Prototyping, Component Protection, Flexibility and Reusability, System Debugging and Troubleshooting, Burn-in and Testing.
What’s the process to work with Globetek for my custom socket design?
After you share your requirement with us, we will work with you and Ironwood and share a quote which includes a non-recurring engineering (NRE) free, socket cost and the lead time. Once you process the PO, we will work with Ironwood to design a custom socket over 1-2 weeks, and upon your approval, the socket will be manufactured and shipped out in 4-6 weeks from the time of design approval.
