GIG-Array® Connectors

Amphenol FCI offers its GIG-Array, BGA mezzanine connector with multiple stack heights and connector signal sizes

Image of Amphenol FCI's GIG-Array® ConnectorsAmphenol FCI’s GIG-Array connector is designed to meet the needs of up to 10 Gb/s applications requiring up to 296 signal pins per connector. Amphenol FCI’s long tradition as a BGA connector innovator assures expertise and reliability in the GIG-Array BGA design. The combination of multiple stack heights (15 mm to 40 mm) and multiple sizes (104, 200, and 296 signals) utilizing a 100 Ω differential matched impedance design allows for optimal design flexibility while yielding less than 1% cross-talk performance.

Amphenol FCI’s patented BGA design is supported by fully automated quality-control systems featuring 100% inspections of assembly coplanarity, solder sphere size and location, as well as critical-to-function terminal component attributes. Multiple in-line vision systems, quality-control product audits, and statistical-process controls are all a part of Amphenol FCI's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.


  • RoHS compliant (lead free) options are available
