Rugged backplane connector support speeds of 25+Gb/s in harsh applications

TE CONNECTIVITY MULTIGIG RT 3 rugged backplane connectors support speeds of 25+Gb/s and able to withstand many extreme military and space environments. Devices employ quad-redundant contacts — time-tested in the MULTIGIG RT 2-R series — to meet rigorous VITA standards for reliable performance under intense vibrations. Devices are made of durable, lightweight thermoplastic and copper alloys and they integrate easily with other VPX products. Products conform to VITA 46 industry standards, making them backwards compatible with legacy OpenVPX systems. Device’s modular design enables numerous configurations by interchanging higher-speed RT 3 connectors with the legacy MULTIGIG RT 2 and RT 2-R connectors.
