When the need to test means that you need a socket to accept an unusual package and the test environment must exactly follow the chip manufactures guidelines then help is at hand with custom test adapters and test boards from Winslow Adaptics. If you require a product to suit your prototyping needs then we have the solution for that too with many available off the shelf.


• Using state of the art elastomeric membrane, sockets can be custom built in our manufacturing facility in the UK to accept almost any package on the market and within timescales which can meet the tightest of deadlines.

Integrating this socket onto a specific test board whether to work in a RF, power or high speed regime with specific I/O connectors and layout considerations does not present a problem. Winslow has gained a wealth of experience in working at all speeds, frequencies and power levels.

Operating environments from normal laboratory conditions to the rigors of temperature and environmental test chambers can present a problem but with the right choice of substrate and socket even the most extreme of environments can be catered for. In short as the test board is made specifically for your requirements the only surprises tend to be short timescales and the low cost.


• Winslow Adaptics have many adapters available from stock for prototyping and have launched 140 new footprint conversion adapters into RS Components for next day delivery.

To suit many package types from QFN to PLCC, these adapters can be used during development or to solve production delays due to obsolescence or lead time issues. In addition you can also now purchase SOIC to DIP adapters in production panel format for use on automatic assembly lines providing a rapid solution to your needs.

If you can't find what you're looking for don't despair, call us, even if we haven't designed it yet we won't charge you NRE's for footprint conversion if we can add it to our standard range.
