Universal Adapter Plates

Universal Adapter Plates serve as a base for affixing the FlexTC thermal head on top of the socket/DUT.

Unlike Custom Adapter Plates, Universal Adapter Plates are attached to test boards that comply with Mechanical-Devices board design rules. By following these design rules customers can eliminate Custom Adapter Plate interface related costs as the same Universal Adapter Plate can be used in many different projects for testing diversity of devices with different types of sockets on different boards.
