Emulation Technology, Inc. (ET)
ET specialises in a wide range of products and services for today's electronic development
lab engineer. Their 22 years of expertise helping engineers create quality products,
reduce costs associated with design, development, and time to market have made them the
leader in this industry.
ET offers a range of products including BGA socket systems, QFN/MLF test
sockets, MICTOR test accessories, spring-probe test clips, programming adapters,
prototyping adapters, ASIC and FPGA development systems, wireless products, high speed
board to board interconnects as well as soldering iron systems and other lab and rework

ET carries several thousand sockets to meet your unique applications. True one-stop
shopping with our 7 different socketing systems: Screw Lock, Knob Lock, Z-Lock, Quick
Lock, Test & Burn-in, Test Socket, High Speed / High Performance.
Prototyping board adapters for provide users with flexible options and are available in
BGA/CSP, QFN/MLF, SOIC, QFP, PLCC, TSOP, TSOPII package styles, and a variety of pad
spacing and lead pitches. Fully assembled & tested prototyping adapters are available
in all socket styles.
ET's Adapt-A-Socket programming adapters make programming PLDs, PALs, EPROMs, EEPROMs and
Flash memory a snap. Our cross reference by semiconductor manufacturer can assist you in
finding the adapter you need.
MICTOR breakout boards are created for users needing a high-speed,
reliable, low cost solution for testing surface mount and BGA packages which can be
difficult to probe directly. In addition, these adapters can bridge the gap between older
PCB designs using stake headers and newer PCB designs using MICTOR connectors.
SAMTEC - ET's newest probing adapter support the Agilent differential and
single ended probes with 100-pin Samtec 0.50mm pitch connectors. The new adapter permits
designers easy access, debug and probing ability for fine-pitch individual and hard to
reach signals in high-speed electronic designs.
|BOARD TO BOARD
Bridging the gap, board to board interconnects include molded plugs for connections
between PCB and daughterboard, SMT bases, bases with cable for posts and ET's high-speed,
pogo pin based interconnect system for applications up to 14.6GHz.
& OSCILLISCOPE PROBES
ET's clips and probes range from QFP (JDEC & EIAJ) to the new TSOPII. For ultra high
density, ET has Microgrippers (miniature grabbers) for testing dual-in-line IC. Our high
performance Microgrippers are capable of providing noise free, high-speed signal
measurement up to 10GHz.
ET introduced the first Bug Katcher in 1983. Since then we have built
a line of tools to assist you in debugging all of the most popular package styles
including BGA, CSP, PQFP, DIP and QFN/MLF.
These development tools provide users with an interface between their device and
an in-circuit emulator. ET offers grabbers, handling tools, test probes and more as
accessories to your in-circuit emulator.
Can your electronic development lab be improved? Expand your available: BGA Reballing and
Rework solutions, heatsinks, insertion tools, soldering iron systems and multimeters.
No two designs are the same. With this in mind, ET provides all-purpose adapters
for programming, logic analysis, and emulation. These adapters have no non-recurring
engineering (NRE) charges and eliminate weeks of waiting.
FPGA DEVELOPMENT SYSTEMS
High performance development systems enable system and design engineers to rapidly design
prototypes and transition electrical designs into an electronic designs. Users work with
CPLDs and FPGAs to gain new skills and advance designs.
|| focuses on providing interconnect solutions for the
embedded systems and test and measurement industry. They offer:
- High density QFP test clips
- Polypod-versitile QFP solder-down adapter
- Solutions for BGA, Thin QFP (TQFP), MicroBGA, and more
- Custom flex-cables for high-speed testing
- Prototyping boards
- Chip-Changers(tm) for converting IC Packages
- Full-custom adapters or off-the-shelf solutions
- New solutions for standard ICs
Adapters.com makes adapters for all types of applications. With thousands of parts
available off-the-shelf and custom solutions available in as little as two weeks after
receipt of order.
- Emulation Adapters
Adapters.com provides a full line of adapter to be used with in-circuit emulators. The
adapters can either plug into a socket, clip over the IC, or solder down in the IC
footprint. New technology for PQFP packages allow for better lower cost solder down
here for available pin counts
- Programming Adapters
Programmers normally have DIP sockets. IC normally come in packages other than DIP.
Adapters.com solves this by offering a full line of programming adapters thousands of ICs.
Search will make your search easier.
- Logic analyzer Adapters
Logic analyzer adapters connect to your target board and allow you to attach logic
analyzers or other test equipment. The Logic Anaylser adapters can clip over the device,
plug into a socket and allow the IC to be placed in a socket on the top of the adapter, or
solder down to a board and allow the IC to be soldered into the top of the adapter.
Micro grabbers for testing individual pins on PQFP and TSOP packages, vacuum pens and
Test Clip Adapters
(Formerly known as the "Delta Probe")
The Lock-Wedge Test Clip is made up of an array of wedge shaped conductors, which make
contact by the penetrating between the IC legs.
The Lock-Wedge Test Clip series uses an unique technology to solve the
complex problem of monitoring all of the signals at once on quad flat pack (QFP), thin
small outline (TSOP), small outline (SOIC), and other fine-pitch IC packages. The line
covers several pin counts from 32 pin to 240 pin. Over 25 different Lock-Wedge Test Clip
configurations will be available soon.
