FCI announced an extension of its GIG-ARRAY high-speed, high-density product line with the introduction of 25 mm plug connectors. These mezzanine connectors provide either 200 or 296 signal contacts, and they add the capability for 40 mm stack height when used with proprietary 15 mm receptacles. The 25 mm plug connectors can also be paired with 5 mm receptacle connectors to provide an additional option to achieve 30 mm board-to-board spacing. The 40 mm stack height expands upon the options for 15 mm, 17 mm, 18 mm, 20 mm, 25 mm, 27 mm, 28 mm, 30 mm and 35 mm board spacing. The connectors feature ball grid array (BGA) connector termination for attachment to printed circuit boards using conventional reflow soldering processes.
