Z-Ray® Ultra Low Profile Interposers

Ultra low profile, high density one piece arrays with compression contacts.


FAMILY OVERVIEW

Z-Ray® micro array interposers are ultra-low profile, high density, highly customizable solutions for board-to-board, IC-to-board, and cable-to-board applications.

BeCu micro-formed contacts, on 0.80 mm and 1.00 mm pitches, are available in a variety of standard and custom configurations, and in dual compression and single compression/solder ball designs. The contacts are assembled into rugged low profile FR4 substrate under high pressure and temperature.
