Advanced Interconnections offers custom engineered, microchip socketed test fixture boards that electrically interface test equipment to ball grid array (BGA) packages. The test fixture boards are multilayer FR-4 assemblies incorporating cable-to-board connectors (which provide the interface to the test system) and AIC's True BGA Socket (into which the chip packages are inserted during testing). The test fixture boards are typically designed with surface mount technologies using vias to make required trace-to-trace connections between the various board layers; the cable-to-board connectors are surface mounted. The True BGA Socket eliminates the need to solder the BGA to the adapter.
