Using the MTi 1-series module without reflow process

The MTi 1-series is specifically targeted at users requiring the lowest integration cost. As the pricing also allows for integration in higher numbers, it is recommended to mount the MTi 1-series module via a reflow process on a PCB. Refer to the Hardware Integration Manual for more information. For prototyping, characterization and evaluation, Xsens has an easy to use Development Kit

The use of a PLCC28 compatible PCB allows using the MTi in a range of adapters. This is generally not recommended, as stress on the MTi 1-series when pressing the MTi in the socket can result in long-term calibration errors.

Attached to this article, you can find a 3D model for a basic tool that can be used to push the MTi 1-series modules into a socket, without exerting any force on the components. For extraction of the MTi 1-series module, we recommend using a dedicated PLCC extraction tool. 

Several PLCC-DIP adapters can be found on several online shops:
