TE debuts VPX stacking connector

TE Connectivity (TE) has released VPX stacking connectors compliant to the VITA 46 footprint.

This connector system has been designed to allow users to cable off the backplane or plug-in card for rugged, embedded computing applications. Stacking connectors are engineered to perform in environments where small, lightweight and rugged connectors are critical for reliability in harsh and strenuous conditions.

These VPX stacking connectors match the footprint of the MULTIGIG RT 2 and MULTIGIG RT 2-R connector and boasts a 4 mm and 4.4 mm stack height, which fits VITA 46 half modules. It is versatile enough to be used as a half module or stackable side by side to fill a full connector position.

With compliant pin termination on both sides, the connector is intended for rigid flex or board-to-board stacking where a separable interface is not required. The VPX stacking connector makes installation simple with its press-fit application.

TE's VPX stacking connector will support the following applications and markets:

  • Military Electronics/C41SR
  • Avionics
  • Ground Defense
  • Missile Defense
  • Space
