makes precision sockets used in the testing and board-level assembly of image sensors
, optoelectronic and gas sensors
, and other
sensitive devices like semiconductors, DC-DC converters
, relays, crystal oscillators, and batteries
Leading camera and laser OEMs and their contract manufacturers solder Andon sockets – not the sensor – onto the PCB, to avoid:
• Device damage from exposure to high temp solder, ESD, and cleaning solutions
• The labor and PC board damage associated with desoldering a faulty device
• Delivery delays associated with holding up PCB assembly until the devices arrive
These companies rely on Andon’s unique SENSTAC™ sensor socket contact designed for high shock and vibration 25-year life requirements.
Standard and custom sockets are available for a variety of package outlines including PGAs
, and more.
Andon has a long history of helping companies protect against device yield losses. John O. Tate, Andon President, pioneered many of the innovative high-reliability sockets, terminals, and test jacks that became the de facto standard for military, aerospace, and commercial applications. In 1965, he developed the stamped and formed multi-finger precision socket contact.
Andon’s patented Heat Sink Socket™
line combines heat dissipation and noise reduction with the traditional benefits of using a socket.
