High Strength Copper Alloys for Sockets

Backgrounds and Trends

As data volumes rise dramatically with the arrival of the 5G era, demand for servers in data centers is expected to grow further. Along with the increasingly high performance of the CPUs inside servers, CPU sockets become higher pin counts, and the current flow in these pins is also rising.

Material Requirements

To minimize the space taken by CPU sockets with their many pins, the trend is toward narrower socket pin pitch and thinner materials. Moreover, with the increase in current density, materials with high electrical conductivity are necessary.
We offer the following lineup of materials meeting such applications.
