Aries introduces a high frequency center probe socket that features a floating guide plate with a built-in hard stop to help protect the probes during rest, and eliminating damage to the package leads. The test socket can be used for packages with a pitch of 0.50 mm pitch or higher for devices up to 55 mm wide in applications with speeds from 1 GHz to over 10 GHz. The decoupling pockets of the center probe test socket can be placed within 1.0 mm of the probes. The socket features solderless, pressure-mount compression spring probes, located by two molded plastic alignment pins and secured with four stainless steel screws. The socket can be used at operating temperatures from 55°C to +150°C.
