Ruggedized VME64x, VITA 60, VITA 66 Interconnects

Ruggedized VME64x, VITA 60, VITA 66 Interconnects

Amphenol Aerospace developed the Ruggedized VME64x in response to the military trend towards VME64x and the utilization of COTS Boards and Chassis. The Amphenol Ruggedized VME64x interconnect has a more rugged interface than standard connectors for improved vibration durability. It meets the needs for a harsh environment connector requiring Level 2 maintenance. Military and commercial aviation, military vehicles and GPS systems are examples of markets that need the ruggedized VME64x connector solution from Amphenol. The Amphenol Ruggedized VME64x connector mounts to standard VME64x cards and backplanes, but it does not mate to other types of VME commercial connectors.

The new VITA based VIPER connector:
VITA46 / 48/60 standards-compatible high-density PCB connector
10 + Gb / s high-speed signal response
1.8mm × 1.35mm grid that was optimized for differential signal
High reliability due to four locations contact of beam-like terminal
Extremely strong resistance to vibration, impact
Robust frame made of aluminum alloy
The ESD protection structure by ring with guide pin ■
Fitting prevention structure and error due to key rotation

Power to Board RADSOK

Power to Board RADSOK

Amphenol RADSOK® solution offers options for high current single-point connections with a compact footprint design that can supply up to 120 Amps to the board. The hyperbolic grid contact provides more surface area with many points of contact for heat dissipation at the pin and socket interface. This lowers temperature rise and reduces potential failures. RADSOK® Power-to-Board products are designed to be applied manually by press-fit or by a re-flow solder process eliminating the need for additional wires and/or special crimp tools.
