Molex LGA 2011-0 Server CPU Socket
Molex LGA 2011-0 Server CPU Socket provides the electrical, mechanical and thermal reliability that enterprise servers, workstations and high-end PCs need to reach target performance levels of Intel’s Core i7 series of 32nm-Sandy Bridge-E microprocessors. The LGA 2011-0 socket features a fully loaded Interstitial Seating Plane (ISP) design for improved contact reliability by preventing circuit opens and shorts caused by contact deformation during a package overload. The socket uses high strength copper alloy contacts for robust performance. The socket terminals are oriented at angles that reduce the risk of cross-contact during processor overloads (‘over compression’). Compared with the LGA 1366 socket, the increase in the LGA 2011-0’s contact density of 12% while maintaining the 1.016mm via-pitch requirement would mean greater space-savings since a corresponding square pitch array requires a 0.9652mm via-pitch for the same package size.
