High Performance Custom BGA Test Sockets & LGA Interposers

There are a lot of options when it comes to bench test sockets. Save yourself and your lab time, money and frustration by working with Ardent for truly customized test socket solutions to meet your needs and do the job with high performance, reliability and quick turnaround that you need and deserve.

Why consider Ardent for your custom BGA sockets and LGA interposers?


Patented technology used for Ardent’s BGA test sockets and LGA interposers is more scalable and less expensive than barrel spring pins. Our custom socket solutions start as low as $1k per custom socket including heat sink and associated hardware. Plus there are no tooling charges for custom solutions.


Our spring loaded test sockets offer the best available electrical performance for an all metal-solution making them the preferred discrete-node alternative to expensive ‘pogo’ style pins. With pitch capability as low as 0.3mm and force per node as low as 5 grams, massively parallel interfaces are possible without massive force.

Durable multi-GHz BGA socket solutions offer low loss connection for wireless devices, processors, fPGA and other high performing devices.


We offer you custom solution for the largest package sizes on the planet. Custom footprints for high per chip socket requirements are easy with Ardent’s technology.
