GIG Array Connector

Amphenol FCI and Digi-Key introduce a new BGA mezzanine connector

Image of FCI's GIG-Array® ConnectorThe 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 (200 signals to 296 signals) utilizing a 100Ω 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 our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

  • RoHS compliant (lead-free) options are available
  • Ball Grid Array (BGA) termination for process friendly attachment
  • 1 mm x 0.65 mm BGA interface pitch optimizes routing and electrical performance
  • Stack heights available from 15 mm to 40 mm provide mezzanine design flexibility
  • Polarized design assures proper mating of the connector
  • Dual beam signal contacts provide two points of contact increasing product reliability
  • Connector sizes of 200 and 296 signals providing 62 signal contacts per linear cm (158 signal contacts per linear inch) allow for optimization of board space and signal requirements
  • 100Ω differential pair matched impedance assures consistent high speed performance
  • Up to 10 Gb/s differential pair performance
  • Very low cross-talk (VLC) design of less than 1% allows for required signal integrity performance
