Luso Electronics has secured exclusive UK distribution of Andon’s competitively priced, high quality sockets and interconnects. Headquartered in the US with an ISO 9001 production facility, Andon manufactures IC sockets, adapters, board-to-board interconnects and contact/terminal products. Besides stock products in large or small volumes, Andon can also deliver bespoke interconnect solutions, which Luso can help design and develop for UK customers.
Andon’s image sensor sockets protect valuable sensors from damage during board assembly and processing, while also providing a cost-effective method for future device upgrade, repair or replacement.
The company’s optoelectronic and gas sockets eliminate production line electrostatic discharge (ESD) problems and the need for high temperature lead-free soldering that can damage such devices. Additionally, its heatsink sockets are available for most image sensors and offer advanced performance in dissipating heat and reducing noise.
Luso is also expanding its line-up of sockets for DC-DC convertors to encompass the full Andon range.
David Zelkha, Managing Director of Luso Electronics, commented: â€œAndon has become recognised as one of the world’s leading interconnection specialists in terms of high performance and reliability, delivering extremely good value as a result. The addition of this franchise opens up access to Andon’s much sought-after quality product line to our customers.â€
