topline png logo

TopLine provides unique solutions to convert solder ball FPGA and ASIC BGA components to solder columns (CCGA) for extending operational life in data centers and for Small Sat space missions.

TopLine manufactures a wide range of solder columns as well as precision graphite tooling to attach columns to ceramic and organic packages.

Column Grid Arrays are more reliable in rugged environments than BGA. CCGA conversion reduces board real estate with an added benefit to lower total payload size and weight by eliminating BGA sockets.

Columns are great to reduce stress and mitigate delamination issues for critical large geometry CMOS sensor package applications.

TopLine has supports aerospace and defense companies to solve difficult CTE mismatch problems using daisy chain components for data collection.

We also have solutions for mitigating extreme random vibration with our series of COTS particle impact dampers (PID). Call us today to discuss your R&D projects.
