Amphenol Aerospace Now Offers Ruggedized VITA 46 Compliant Connectors

SIDNEY, NY --- Amphenol Aerospace now offers ruggedized VPX connectors that meet and exceed VITA 46 standards. The R-VPX connector series is designed for embedded computer applications in many commercial and military applications, such as avionics, C4ISR, ground defense, missile defense, and space systems with data rates of 10 Gbps or more.

The R-VPX series is a commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) high-speed, high-density, ruggedized VITA 46-compliant connector series. This cost-effective series is designed to be utilized in open architecture embedded computing systems with modules available for 3U and 6U VPX slot profiles and is inter-mateable and inter-mountable with any VITA 46-compliant connector. The R-VPX series gives users modularity and flexibility by utilizing PCB wafer construction with customized wafer-loading patterns. This also allows for upgrades in existing VPX systems.

R-VPX is a pin-less backplane, low-mating force connector series that supports Ethernet, Fiber Channel, InfiniBand, and other protocols. It is capable of up to 140 signals per inch, supports .8 inch card slot pitches, and can be combined with high power modules, RF modules (VITA 67) and optical modules (VITA 66).
