Manufacturing & Prototyping

Product of the Month: November 2016

Wolfram Research, Champaign, IL, released Mathematica 11 technical computing software that features more than 500 new functions, including improvements in machine learning, 3D printing and geometry, mathematics, visualization and graphics, graphs and statistics, geography, text and language processing, knowledge base, units and dates, cloud and Web interfaces, and audio, imaging, and signals. The new version enables users to print 3D models and plots directly through local or cloud-based 3D printers, and to identify more than 10,000 objects and classify and extract features in data with customizable machine learning tools. Other features include the ability to construct, train, and evaluate high-performance neural networks with both CPU and GPU support, and integrated support for audio, from trimming and filters to synthesizing sounds and measuring audio. The software includes enhancements in interface, language and algorithm depth, and efficiency.For Free Info Visit

BGA Socket

Ironwood Electronics (Eagan, MN) recently introduced a new BGA socket design using high performance elastomer capable of 75GHz, very low inductance and wide temperature applications. The GT-BGA-2052 socket is designed for 17x17 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 75GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The socket is designed to dissipate watts using compression screw and can be customized up to 100 watts with modified fin design on top of the screw and adding axial flow fan. Contact resistance is typically 30 milliohms per pin. The temperature range is -55 C to +160 C. Works with IC's such as 292 BGA, 17x17mm with 20x20 array and 0.8mm pitch.Click here to learn more.
