Rugged High-Speed Solutions That Save Weight and Space.

Increase Power, Data and Bandwidth Speed Design with Open Architecture Solutions. Next-generation processors need next-generation connectivity to keep pace with the growing demand for bandwidth even as space, weight, and power savings become critical. TE Connectivity (TE) has been pushing the bandwidth envelope by adapting high-speed commercial technology and combining it with our expertise in rugged packaging. The results are board-level

interconnects that give you more performance in harsh military and aerospace applications.

 

Beyond Speed. TE is also reducing size through higher contact densities and supporting RF and optical interconnects at the board level allowing contact, high-speed box-to-box connectivity. TE has a full range of I/O connectors supporting rates up to 25+ Gb/s.

VPX Compliant Solutions

As the latest standard architecture evolving from VMEbus, the VPX standard meets the needs for data-intensive processing in the aerospace and defense industries, where both ruggedness and high-speed performance are crucial. Supporting switched fabric architecture, VPX systems are designed for flexible application of demanding high-speed protocols, such as 10G and 100G Ethernet, PCIe Gen4, RapidIO, InfiniBand, and HyperTransport, in ground, aerospace, and marine applications.

Scalable

VPX systems are highly scalable and flexible, supporting both 3U and 6U formats to meet
the widest range of needs. The VPX backplane uses the TE 7-row MULTIGIG RT 2 connector
system to support both single-ended and differential signals.

Open Architecture

As a widely used standard, VPX promotes interoperability, a healthy choice of suppliers, and economies of scale that result from higher board volumes. TE Connectivity is an active participant and standards driver for organizations like VITA and SOSA and has a portfolio of products aligned to their standards.

Flexible

Not only does VPX accommodate new technologies, it has expanded beyond  backplane/daughterboard signaling to embrace mezzanine application, power modules, and optical and RF connectivity—all with the goal of providing unmatched flexibility and capabilities for embedded computing.

High Speeds, Multimedia, Maximum Flexibility

TE’s portfolio of VPX systems gives you a complete array for high-speed data, optical, RF, power, and mezzanine connectivity. More choice means more flexibility in achieving
specific system architectures with standards based solutions. Get the high-speed signal
integrity advanced applications require in rugged, reliable connectors.

Ruggedness

MULTIGIG RT connectors are built for extreme environments on and beyond the earth’s atmosphere. TE knows that system critical connections in aerospace and defense systems can often mean life or death, for this reason TE has tested and proven the MULTIGIG RT connector system for shock, vibration, humidity, corrosion, durability, and all in extreme temperatures. This extreme ruggedness is designed into MULTIGIG RT to ensure successful missions and to extended life spans in critical environments where repair is impossible, or overly expensive.
