Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9933109A1] An improved connector assembly (1) particularly useful for testing semiconductor devices of ball grid array ("BGA") structure (10) with a plurality of solder balls (11) formed on the surface thereof. The balls (11) are placed into contact with opposing conductive portions (3a) of the connector assembly. A heat generating member (7), such as a wire, is disposed proximate to the connector assembly conductive portions (3a) and may be selectively energized to generate heat to partially melt the solder balls (11). Reliable connections are effected in this manner.
