Socket Modules


Socket Modules and socket cards are the electro-mechanical interface between the programmable semiconductor device and the programmer. BPM offers a substantial number of socket modules and socket cards to support thousands of devices in different packages from over 190 semiconductor manufacturers. New socket module and socket card designs are continuously added and can be developed quickly to meet your programming needs. Following modules types are available:

  • Single-socket standard modules
  • Single-socket high-speed FX modules
  • Multi-sockets high-speed FX2 & FX4 modules
  • High insertion count socket modules
  • Universal socket modules
  • Single-socket high-speed FVE modules
  • Multi-sockets high-speed FVE2 & FVE4 modules

The big advantage of the most BPM’s modules is receptacle interface between the printed circuit board and the socket. This allows to replace only the individual consumable socket once it reaches its useful life. All these has proven to extend the life of the socket module and socket card, producing higher yields and lowering programming cost per device especially in mass production. Also applying in multi-socket modules of individual replacement socket daughter cards reduces costs of their replacement.


Lever Socket Actuator


Lever Socket Actuator with integrated Universal Pressure Plate is designed to complement 1- and 2-sites manual programmer products. With its precision self-locking lever, the operator can consistently actuate the sockets while placing and removing devices. This minimize fatigue from opening and closing sockets by hand as well as minimize the potential for bent pins on programmable devices. Smooth operations extend sockets’ lifetime. So applying of Lever Socket Actuator reduces costs per device.
