Z-LOK(TM) zero insertion force ball-grid array sockets for SMT applications are available in two new sizes. Unlike other multiple-part BGA socket assemblies, these one-piece Z-LOK sockets can be soldered into position and used with all BGA package types in the same manner as standard ZIF PGA sockets. Targeted for both development and production use, Z-LOK sockets allow repeated tool-free removal and insertion of BGA-packaged processors from and to pc-boards, with no solder ball damage or loss of signal. These sockets are compatible with all surface-mount techniques.
