Camera and display modules, which are becoming more multifunctional through high-density mounting, are increasingly using narrower pin spacing. It is extremely difficult to inspect extremely small products with dozens of terminals arranged in a narrow pitch. However, the narrow-pitch compatible type, which is packed with OMRON’s technology, can realize highly accurate inspection even for extremely small and narrow-pitch products that require delicate handling.

*According to our own research in March 2023

Pogo pins are cylindrical in shape and occupy mounting space, making it difficult to place them side by side at a pitch of 0.35mm or less. Forcibly making the size to be smaller will make it less durable, and the pin will break immediately. However, OMRON’s blade pins, which are formed by depositing metal onto a mold plate using the EFC process technology, are plate-shaped, so they can be arranged at a minimum pitch of 0.175mm. OMRON’s testing sockets meet the narrow pitch needs of inspection products which are becoming increasingly multifunctional due to high-density mounting.

World’s smallest class* with a narrow pitch of 0.175mm
*According to our own research in March 2023

OMRON’s high-frequency compatible sockets can handle up to 43.5GHz frequency band. The key to enhancing high-frequency characteristics is to eliminate contact resistance as much as possible. Since general pogo pins are composed of multiple parts, they tend to have high internal resistance and poor high-frequency characteristics. However, OMRON’s high-frequency pins can be manufactured in a single component using a processing method unique to the EFC process technology. Excellent high-frequency characteristics can be achieved because there is no contact resistance between the contacting parts of the components.

The need for high-capacity equipment is steadily increasing, and the equipment that inspects the equipment is also required to handle high capacities. OMRON’s high-current compatible sockets have a long mechanical durability of 500,000 times or more and can handle high currents of 2.5A DC or higher. A wide range of variations are available to expand the scope of customer inspections.

product-efc03_01_01_en

*Specifications are for reference only and may vary depending on the customized product.

Bundle structure can handle up to 10A DC

OMRON’s high-current type can handle up to 2.5A DC using a single pin, and up to 10A DC by adopting a bundle structure with multiple pins connected. It can be used for inspection of power semiconductors such as QFN (quad flat non-leaded) packages.

In order to achieve a large current while ensuring sufficient spring property, the high-current type uses a multiple-spring structure where multiple springs are connected using a manufacturing method unique to the EFC process technology. Larger and thicker pins can handle larger current, but this will result in poor spring property, leading to reduced contact accuracy and durability. The multiple-spring structure provides the same conduction area as a single-spring, and the design of providing space allows for flexible movement inside the pin while accommodating large currents.

product-efc03_02_02_en
product-efc03_02_03_en

Handling ultra-high current range under low duty ratio (actual value)

OMRON conducts duty ratio tests on high current sockets to evaluate their performance. OMRON’s high-current type has the ability to handle even larger currents under a low duty ratio (when the current flow time is short). Semiconductor testing is only used to check for continuity and is not used in such a way that a large current is applied for a long period of time. Under low duty ratio, OMRON’s high-current type can also be used to inspect power semiconductors with specifications of several tens of amperes, which is considered to be in the ultra-high current range in the semiconductor industry. Please consider adopting OMRON’s high-current type.

product-efc03_03_01

Kelvin connection compatible
High-density terminal arrangement with minimized insulation distance to
handle large currents

There are probably many customers who use Kelvin connection measurement (four-terminal measurement) for the inspection of power semiconductor products that handle large currents. The larger the current, the higher the contact resistance, and the more difficult it is to accurately measure the specifications of the device under test. The Kelvin connection separates the terminals for current measurement from those for voltage measurement, allowing accurate measurement of the resistance of the device under test without being affected by lead resistance or contact resistance.

product-efc03_04_01_en

Since Kelvin measurement requires that the current-measuring pin and the voltage-measuring pin are in contact with the same terminal, it is important that both pins are properly insulated to ensure safe use. OMRON’s high-current compatible type also offers sockets with pins equipped with insulating films.
In general, as the number of pins available for measurement increases, it becomes possible for larger currents to be measured and inspected. Pogo pins are cubic in shape, so they require more mounting space than plate-shaped pins. This makes it difficult to press multiple pins against a very small terminal (electrode pad) for inspection.
In addition, the isolation distance must be secured to allow larger currents to flow. Therefore, with typical Kelvin compatible sockets, the challenge is how to apply multiple pins to a high-current, small-package device under test.
OMRON’s high temperature compatible type blade pins are plate-shaped and very slim. Since more test pins can be applied to one terminal (electrode pad), it is possible to handle larger currents than with common Kelvin compatible sockets. Furthermore, the blade pins have an insulating film, which allows space-saving design without taking up a large insulating space, even when used at high currents.

product-efc03_04_02_en
product-efc03_04_03_en

Conventional Kelvin compatible sockets require the current and voltage pins to be placed separately in some cases affects the design of the device under test and measurement equipment, such as the layout of terminals. However, OMRON’s Kelvin compatible sockets allow the current and voltage pins to be placed separately within the same bundle by simply flipping the pins. This can contribute to a reduction in the customer’s design and manufacturing man-hours

product-efc03_04_04_en

The pins for measuring current and voltage can be easily separated by simply flipping the terminals, making design and production easier.

product-efc03_04_05_en

Pins for measuring current and voltage are mixed, making design and production difficult.

High durability and reduced maintenance

Custom design recommendations that best suit the customer’s application and OMRON’s original material blend* make our sockets more than five times more durable than pogo-pin sockets. This greatly reduces the frequency of testing socket replacement at the inspection site, contributing to improved production efficiency.

Electronic devices such as MLCCs, crystal oscillators, and surface acoustic wave filters are very small, some about 1/10th the size of a grain of rice. When inspection pins were applied to these products, it was difficult to perform highly accurate continuity inspections because the tip of each testing pin was extremely thin, resulting in variations in measurement values. To make matters worse, the terminals of the device under test are often made of ceramic and are very hard, so the tips of the testing pins were scraped. This resulted in a short life span and increased maintenance frequency, thereby reducing production efficiency. There was also a problem that the broken pin could damage the device under test itself.
OMRON’s high hardness compatible sockets can be used safely for such extremely small package products.

product-efc04_01_02_en

*Specifications are for reference only and may vary depending on the customized product.

Stable contact for accurate inspections

OMRON’s ultra-small package compatible sockets have a convex tip shape to ensure a sufficient contact area with the conduction pad. The strength of the EFC process technology is its ability to control the dimensional tolerances of this tip shape in micron order with extremely small pins and even in mass production.

product-efc04_02_01_en

In addition, the material of the terminals (electrode pads) of small devices under test such as crystal oscillators is often ceramic, and the surface is uneven. Therefore, there are cases where it is difficult to accurately measure the movement of vertical pins such as pogo pins. However, due to the movement of the spring that is unique to the EFC process technology, OMRON’s blade pins make contact in such a way that the pin rubs the terminal surface rather than making contact in a vertical direction. This makes it possible to offer products with reliable contact and stable measurement accuracy.

Long operating life and reduced maintenance

The convex tip shape greatly reduces damage to the pin tip. OMRON’s blade pins reduce maintenance man-hours in the mass production process and contribute to increased production efficiency.
Furthermore, the blade pins greatly reduce the risk of damaging the customer’s product due to breakage of the tip, enabling stress-free inspections.

product-efc05_01_01_en

*Specifications are for reference only and may vary depending on the customized product.

No damage to customer’s products

When measuring small devices under test, such as SOPs, frame deformation caused by the contact of testing pins is a challenge due to the fragility of the lead frame. OMRON’s SOP compatible sockets use blade pins that are structured to clamp the lead frame of the device under test from both sides.
Stress is hard to be applied, preventing deformation and damage of the lead frame during inspection.

product-efc05_02_01_en

Gently clamp the lead frame of the device under test from both sides with blade pins to prevent deformation and damage to the lead frame.

product-efc05_02_02_en

The lead frame is deformed because the rod-shaped hard testing pin is pressed against the fragile lead frame.

Accurate measurements even in a small package

In the case of small and wobbly devices under test, such as an SOP package, it is difficult to accurately inspect each terminal by pressing a rod-shaped pogo pin against the terminal. OMRON’s SOP compatible type contacts the lead frame in such a way as to clamp it from both sides, enabling the testing pin to be pressed with accurate and sufficient contact force even for an SOP sized device under test. The SOP compatible type provides stable electrical contact and highly accurate measurements.

Stable contact is achieved by clamping the lead frame of the device under test from both sides with blade pins.

The terminal on the inspection side is rod-shaped and makes point contact, so it is difficult to accurately bring into contact the terminal to the lead frame of the small and wobbly device under test.

High durability and reduced maintenance

OMRON’s SOP-compatible sockets are five times more durable than pogo-pin sockets, due to OMRON’s original material blend* and custom design proposals that are suitable for customers’ applications. This greatly reduces the frequency of testing socket replacement at the inspection site, contributing to improved production efficiency.

OMRON offers socket types that can be used in high temperature environments up to 200°C. The socket types can be used safely for a long period of time in burn-in tests, etc., where initial failures are eliminated in advance by applying temperature and voltage loads. Furthermore, with the same size design as pogo pins, it is possible to replace currently used pogo pins.

Usable in high temperature environments up to 200°C

Pogo pins generally have a spring inside. Therefore, when used at high temperatures, depending on the combination of materials, the inner spring and outer housing may be welded together. However, OMRON’s high temperature compatible type testing pins have a structure that is resistant to welding by placing a spring made of heat-resistant material outside of the pin. The high temperature compatible type has a contact resistance of 100mΩ or less even after 500,000 operations at a high temperature of 180°C. Accurate inspections can be performed even in high temperature environments without being affected by contact resistance or mechanical life.

Safe inspection with stable contact

Pogo pins are basically composed of plunger, spring, and barrel designs, and conduction occurs when the plunger and spring come into contact with each other. Therefore, contactability is dependent on the movement of the spring. OMRON’s high temperature compatible type conducts electricity when the upper plunger and the lower plunger come into contact with each other. The contact structure is such that the lower plunger clamps the upper plunger from both sides, ensuring sufficient contact force. The stable contact ensures accurate inspections without being affected by variations in contact resistance.

The contact structure where the upper plunger sandwiches the lower plunger from both sides ensures stable contact.

The contact is unstable because it depends on the movement of the spring in a structure which conducts electricity when the spring and plunger come into contact with each other.
