Your Socket Solution

Socket modules and socket cards are the electro-mechanical interface between the programmable semiconductor device and the programmer. The robust design is ideal for manufacturing and design environments where high signal integrity and reliable performance are critical.

The sophisticated technology of BPM Microsystems’ active circuitry delivers the cleanest waveform signals to the device by eliminating noise, ground bounce, and overshoot, and allows for the most reliable vector testing available to ensure the highest quality and overall yield.

BPM Microsystems offers a substantial number of socket modules and socket cards to support thousands of devices from over 190 semiconductor manufacturers. New socket module and socket card designs are continuously added and can be developed quickly to meet your programming needs.

Our socket modules and socket cards provide you with the best combination of programming quality and cost of ownership. Contact us in regards to your specific needs.

FX4-FX2 socket module The FX4 and FX2 socket modules are specifically designed for the 7th Generation series of programmers. With the capability of programming up to two or four devices simultaneously on just one programming site, these modules enable users to achieve greater productivity and reliability.The independent socket daughter card design improves programming up-time and lowers operating cost because each socket daughter card can be replaced individually. FX4 and FX2 socket modules are offered in both manual and automated models.Compatible Programming Models: 1710, 2710, 3710MK2, 4710

High Insertion Count Socket Module HIC (High Insertion Count) socket modules, also known as long-life socket modules are designed for customers with high volume production requirements who aim for maximum programming yields.These socket modules are rated to from 200,000 to 300,000 insertions andsupport multiple package types. In addition, pogo pins can be replaced to extend the life of the socket. Ultimately, our HIC socket modules ensure productivity, long-term reliability, and very low operating cost per insertion.Compatible Programming Models: 1610, 2610, 1710, 2710, 3610, 3710-MK2, 4610, 4710

socket module replacements socket daughter cards Get the most out of your socket module with our individual replacement socket daughter cards. Unlike our competitors’ “gang” cards that are soldered to a common PCB, our customers can optimize the number of socket daughter cards needed and replace them individually without dramatically affecting programming capacity. This fault-tolerant design increases manufacturing up-time and saves replacement costs by as much as 75 percent.Compatible Programming Models: 1610, 2610, 1710, 2710, 3610, 3710-MK2, 4610, 4710

receptacle base socket modules and socket cards Our receptacle-base socket modules and socket cards include a receptacle interface between the printed circuit board and the socket. This allows our customers to replace only the individual consumable socket once it reaches its useful life.This has proven to extend the life of the socket module and socket card, producing higher yields and lowering programming cost perdevice.Compatible Programming Models: 1610, 2610, 1710, 2710, 2800F-MK2, 3000FS-MK2, 3610, 3710-MK2, 4610, 4710, 2800, 3800, 4800
