Johnstech announces an innovative, interchangeable technology to meet grounding and thermal needs. These six interchangeable inserts work in both Johnstech's Pad Series products for LFCSP and MLF-type packages and its Leaded Series 2 mm products for QFP, SO, and other leaded packages. These inserts, made of either Torlon or Copper, can be used with either Johnstech's rigid S-shaped contact or its center body contact (CBC) technology. Johnstech is also releasing a 1 mm contacting technology for the Pad Series. The 1 mm contacting technology provides excellent electrical performance; modeled data shows an insertion loss of 1 dB @ 45 GHz and return loss of 20 dB @ 40 GHz.
