Peripheral family standard sockets include an alignment ring. Designing with an alignment ring allows replacement of the alignment features of the socket without replacing the entire socket. This will lead to a higher cost savings.Sockets are configurable with any spring pin at any pitch. Socket frames are made from aluminum, thus eliminating or reducing the amount of bowing that occurs in high pin count socket applications. Sockets are designed with maximum component clearance and are top mount for easy removal. Bottom mount is available upon request.
