GIG-Array®

The GIG-ARRAY® connector is designed to meet the needs of up to 10Gb/s applications requiring up to 296 signal pins per connector. AFCI’s long tradition as a BGA connector innovator assures expertise and reliability in the GIG-ARRAY® BGA design.

The combination of multiple stack heights (15mm to 40mm) and multiple sizes (200 signals to 296 signals) utilizing a 100-Ohm differential matched impedance design allows for optimal design flexibility while yielding less than 1% cross-talk performance.

AFCI has produced BGA mezzanine connectors since 1996, shipping over 10 billion BGA contact interfaces demonstrating AFCI’s extensive experience as the premier BGA interconnect innovator and supplier. AFCI’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.
