Andon Electronics makes precision sockets used in the placement of image sensors, optoelectronic and gas sensors, power converters, batteries, crystal oscillators, fuses, relays, and other electronic devices onto PC boards.
- Device damage from exposure to high temp solder, ESD, and cleaning solutions.
- Solder joint cracking and associated intermittency
The labor and PC board damage associated with de-soldering a faulty device.
- Holding up PCB assembly until the devices arrive.
- Device performance degradation due to excessive heat and noise.
John O. Tate, Andon President, pioneered many of the innovative, high-reliability interconnects for military, aerospace and commercial applications that have become industry standards. In 1965, he developed the stamped and formed multi-finger precision socket contact, which remains the preferred method throughout the world for connecting today’s critical components.
Standard and custom sockets are available for a variety of package outlines including PGAs, BGAs, CLCCs, PLCCs, TOs, DIPs, SIPs, LEDs, and more.
