Custom Test Connectors and Sockets
Test Connectors and Test Sockets
Custom test sockets are traditionally expensive to build and maintain. To reduce these costs, consider using rapid prototyping techniques to build a housing or using replaceable Z-Axis Connectors. Depending on board layouts and compressed height, these sockets or test fixtures can achieve high numbers of mate/de-mate cycles and operate at GHz frequencies. In many cases, they are significantly less expensive than traditional mechanical alternatives.
