Proven Test Sockets and Board to Board Connectors
Since inception, Ardent Concepts, Inc. has been designing
custom test and measurement interfaces with its patented technologies.
Leading global semiconductor companies rely on Ardent’s board
to board connectors and test sockets. Our all metal contact technology
offers the best electrical price/performance ratio for custom spring
loaded connectors in the industry, allowing test engineers to design
affordable solutions for demanding high frequency applications. Ardent
contacts achieve low contact resistance by using a low surface area
contact patch, which allows engineers to design high density connectors
without high levels of contact force.
Industry Case Study - Top Side Interconnect Solution.
For the semiconductor industry, we offer you, the engineer, board
to board connectors and test sockets you can count on:
Test sockets for various package types
including QFN packages, BGA
test sockets and LGA test
sockets (large area array sockets).
Test sockets from Ardent Concepts are designed with modular components
and robust contact sets for enduring repeatability and cycling. Most
Ardent test sockets are designed to withstand hundreds of thousands
of mating cycles and provide consistent DC resistance over time. All
Ardent test socket employ multi-GHz contact sets which are cost effective
alternatives to expensive high performance pogo pin sockets.

Board to board connectors
– Ardent’s Space Transform-RTM board to board connector
is the solution for super high node count applications. These board
to board connectors are available in modular designs ranging from
1,000 - 25,000+ nodes. The Ardent RC Space Transform-R™ is a
lower force drop-in replacement for massively parallel spring-pin
connectors and conductive elastomeric contact sets. Designed with
RC Spring Probe™ technology, this space
transformer board to board connector is a highly reliable discrete
node z-axis interconnect solution. These spring pin connectors offer
extremely low force, consistent DC resistance and exceptional AC performance
for Vertical Probe Card interface applications.
here to see how Ardent's technology is being used to dramatically
improve performance in advanced board to board connector applications.
