A Berg connector is a brand of electrical connector used in computer hardware. Berg connectors are manufactured by Berg Electronics Corporation of St. Louis, Missouri, a division of Framatome Connectors International.

Berg connectors have a 2.54 mm (=.100 inch) pitch, pins are square (0.64 mm x 0.64 mm = approx. 0.025 x 0.025 inch), and usually come as single or double row connectors.

Many types of Berg connectors exist. Some of the more familiar ones used in IBM PC compatibles are:

  • the 4-pin polarized Berg connectors used to connect 3.5-inch floppy disk drive units to the power supply unit, usually referred to as simply a "floppy power connector", but often also referred to as LP4. This connector has a 2.5 mm pitch (not 2.54)!!
  • the 2-pin Berg connectors used to connect the front panel lights, turbo switch, and reset button to the motherboard, and
  • the 2-pin Berg connectors used as jumpers for motherboard configuration.
