Version: **

When sockets in flash programmers reach the limit of specified number of insertions, old sockets must be replaced with new ones. If socket preventive maintenance is not done, sockets may not work correctly which may lead to severe system malfunctions such as contact issues leading to improper flash content programming, noisy power supply causing functional failures of the flash device, and unwanted excursions on the production line.

Socket insertion limits differ in a wide range depending on socket types and manufacturers. Standard sockets have the insertion limit from 5,000 to 50,000; on the other hand, High Insertion Count (HIC) sockets (also known as long-life sockets) are rated for 200,000 to 300,000 insertions.

Always refer to the maximum number of insertions specified by the socket manufacturer when defining the cadence for flash programmers’ socket maintenance.
