ELECTRONICS: Molex Inc. has announced that three of its socket products have met the stringent criteria for Intel validation. Molex is one of only three vendors whose socket product families are validated across all three computer market segments of server, desktop and notebooks. As an Intel-enabled vendor, Molex sockets are compatible with Intel’s reference design and passed the criteria set for electrical performance and long-term reliability with Intel’s CPUs.
The sockets include:
Molex LGA 1366 Server CPU Socket: The LGA 1366 (Land Grid Array) is a server CPU socket designed for Intel’s Nehalem micro-architecture that uses an LGA 1366-pin packaging and smaller pitch size of 1.016 x 1.016 mm (.040 x .040 inch). Also known commonly as Socket B, socket 1366 or LGA 1366, this socket mates with the server processor through the gold pads of the LGA 1366 package.
Molex LGA 1156 Desktop CPU Socket (pictured): The LGA 1156 (Land Grid Array) is a desktop CPU socket. It is designed for Intel’s Nehalem micro-architecture that uses an LGA 1156-pin packaging and smaller pitch size of 0.9144 x 0.9144 mm (0.037 x .037 inch). Also known commonly as Socket H1, Socket 1156 or LGA 1156, this socket mates with the desktop PC processor through the gold pads of the LGA 1156 package.
Molex rPGA 989/988 Notebook PC CPU Socket: The rPGA 989/988 (Reduced Pin Grid Array) is a Notebook PC CPU socket designed for Intel’s Nehalem micro-architecture that uses a Pin Grid Array (PGA) 989 or 988-pin packaging with a reduced pitch size of 1.00 x 1.00 mm (.039 x .039 inch) . Also known commonly as Socket G1, Socket 989 or rPGA 989/988, this socket mates with the Notebook PC processor through the gold pins of the rPGA 989/988 package.
