The New Generation Y-RED

November 14, 2019 Tiera Oliver

The New Generation Y-RED from Yamaichi Electronics starts with the standard hinged-type socket for evaluation and reliability applications, like HAST, HTOL and Burn-in. The socket can be equipped with spring probe pins starting from 0.3mm pitch. The operation temperature range is from -40°C to +150°C. The Y-RED sockets can be used for the packages LGA, QFN and BGA / (WL)CSP´s from sizes of 3x3 to 11x11mm.

New Socket Mounting Concept

A development step is the new mounting technique. With the new generation Y-RED, Yamaichi Electronics introduces a mounting plate which includes already the screws. The mounting plate sticks to the backside of the PCB by press-fit or can be easily hold by hand. Cap nuts are used to fix the socket from top. The mounting plate acts also as transportation safety plate and as stiffener together with the optional pusher.

Additional features are the spring-loaded pusher to compensate height tolerances of the device, as well as the accurate device guiding.

Yamaichi Electronics plans future Y-RED sub-families for failure analysis, high performance with low inductance, HF/Coax and Kelvin sockets.
