E-tec manufacture in Asia, Switzerland and the UK. We have developed a UK based rapid response manufacturing capability, specialising in turned pin adaptors and sockets, to offer customers fast turnaround on both sample and production builds.
Socket footprints can be created in all shapes and sizes in FR4 or other hi-temp materials using the latest technology high speed CNC drilling machines. A suitable terminal can be selected from our extensive and varied stock of turned pins, and using our array of assembly equipment we can produce high quality, cost effective parts to meet individual customer requirements. This flexibility enables E-tec UK to give a rapid response to both sample requests and production requirements of up to tens of thousands of sockets per week.
We offer an extensive range of PCB Connectors and Headers, many of which are kept in UK stock and may be considered as competitively priced alternatives to other manufacturers such as Harwin, Samtec, FCI and Molex. See our PCB Interconnect Products for full details and data sheets.
E-tec BGA sockets include patented probe pin designs for BGA, LGA and CGA chip socketing down to 0.40mm pitch. Sockets may be fixed to the pcb by surface mounting, thru hole soldering or by solderless compression method. Various lid options are available; from low cost twist lock to super efficient Clamshell, used where high numbers of chips are being tested - up to 500,000 insertions.
