News Release: Compliant Power Contacts

June 27, 2019

Paricon announces a broad line of compliant power contacts for use in test and production applications. The product line technologies range from very thin elastomers to large machined spring pins.

Machined Pins PariPoser® elastomer

Paricon’s proprietary elastomer contact has a very low profile along with extremely low inductance, low contact resistance, and a very high current-carrying capacity. The large machined spring pins in the product line are rugged and have high spring forces. The product line also includes small stamped and machine contacts that can be used in IC sockets.

These products are available for shipments in Q3 2019, unless special modifications or custom interconnect assemblies are requested. Many of the machined spring pins are compatible with catalog Battery Probes from ECT (Everett Charles Technology) and Ingun.

News Release: PariProbe® Primer posted

June 20, 2019

A new report – the PariProbe® Primer – has been added to the Technology tab of the Paricon web site. The report explains in detail how the product is made and the benefits it provides. The report also identifies the typical specifications and costs associated with 0.8mm pitch applications.

 

 

PariProbe® contactors and sockets are currently shipping with a typical 4-6 week lead time.

News Release: AIP socket announced at IMS2019

May 29, 2019

Paricon Technologies and RUPPtronik will both display a new style socket at the Boston IMS show in June that is designed for testing and characterizations of AIP (antenna-in-package) devices.

AIP is a new trend in IC packaging that allows the integration of all the complex RF components with the baseband circuitry into a complete self-contained module. This greatly facilitates the work of system integrators and reduces the overall size of the equipment. AIP applications will be found in automotive radars, and the IoT products.

The base of the socket has wave guides imbedded in its metal structure that feed directly to the antennae in the package. (The show demo base structure is made of acrylic to help explain the wave guide structures.) A PariPoser® elastomer connects the signal and power pads of the device to the test PCB (not shown).

These sockets are currently shipping with a lead time of 3-4 weeks.

For further information, please contact sales@paricon-tech.com or mailto:bernd.rupp@rupptronik.de or stop and visit Paricon Technologies at Booth 131 or RUPPtronik at Booth 580 at the Boston  IMS2019 show.


 

News Release: New Product at IMS2019

May 22, 2019

Paricon will exhibit a new high performance stacking connector at the IMS (International Microwave Symposium) in Boston on June 4-6, 2019.

 

Rigid signal and power pins are located in the connector body between two sheets of compliant PariPoser® elastomer. The locations, pitch, and height of the pins can be custom designed for each application. In addition, any number of 60GHz rated 50Ω coaxial lines can be positioned anywhere in the connector to match the layout of the PCB.

The target applications are in high-speed computing, ATE and 5G communications equipment.

Shipments will begin in Q3 2019.

For further information, please contact sales@paricon-tech.com or stop and visit Paricon Technologies at Booth 131 at the Boston  IMS2019 show.


News Release: The Marriage of Elastomers and Spring Pins

March 27, 2019

Paricon announces a major expansion of the PariProbe® product line today that combines the benefits of conductive elastomers and spring probes. Both interconnect technologies are widely used, but they each have their limitations. By combining the two technologies into one product, high speed, high power, and high compliance interconnects are now available for test socket and connector users in some of the highest growth segments of the semiconductor markets. Typical applications will be for 5G devices and automotive sensors.

The Hybrid PariProbe® is a very short spring pin with a very low inductance signal path that is contained in a one-piece socket or connector subassembly by the PariPoser® elastomer (yellow) and the elastomer frame (blue). The contact array subassembly is then placed into the socket or connector housing, which is in turn, mounted to a test board (green).

 

Paricon is now accepting inquiries and will begin shipments later in 2019.
