SMT Package Emulation

The SF-MLF32A-A-02 small-footprint Surface Mount Package Emulator Foot for 5-mm body, 0.5-mm pitch pins such as the Cypress PSOC CY8C2XXXX family.

This device has pads on the bottom that precisely match the pin layout for the MLF/QFN package including the E-pad or heatsink pad in the center of the pattern. This allows connection to an MLF land pattern of target board to provide a set of interconnects available for probing or connecting to another assembly. The top of the SF-MLF32A-A-02, after being attached to the target, consists of female, machined socket pins with all gold plating for maximum reliability. Compatible gold-plated male pin adapters are then plugged in. Other sizes of MLF SMT adapters are available in the same product line from 28 to 64 pins.
