M-Series H-Pin® Socket

M-Series socket has long been the gold standard for reliability and out-of-the-box performance burn-in sockets. The high-quality components have been refined and enhanced over their lifetime for optimum performance and the highest quality. M-Series being one of the most mature products in the portfolio does not mean it lacks technology. In fact, quite the opposite, the M-Series offers all the same configurable features and high performance H-Pin contact technology to exceed performance expectations of the most demanding applications. The M-Series has been trusted to deliver uncompromised performance generation after generation. The small outline footprint provides design flexibility and allows for high socket density on the burn-in board.
