The SMT socket uses the same footprint as your chip. Socket is simply placed and reflowed onto the PCB in the same way as the chip and it only requires a small amount of additional board space. SMT type sockets are available with all retention systems. We aim to solve your requirements. Please note, we will always request the chip data to ensure we offer a compatible socket. For SMT sockets in general, E-tec Interconnect AG recommends the use of locating pegs, which can be soldered to the PCB for added mechanical strength.
