TE CONNECTIVITY VPX stacking connector system is compliant to the VITA 46 footprint, allowing users to cable off the backplane or plug-in card for rugged, embedded computing applications. Devices perform in environments where small, lightweight and rugged connectors are critical for reliability in harsh and strenuous conditions. Product matches the footprint of the MULTIGIG RT 2 and MULTIGIG RT 2-R connector and boasts a 4mm and 4.4mm stack height, which fits VITA 46 half modules. Device 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, product is suitable for rigid flex or board-to-board stacking where a separable interface is not required.
