BOARD CONNECTORS: High-vibration OpenVPX embedded computing board connector introduced by TE Connectivity

TE Connectivity (TE) in Harrisburg, Pa., is introducing the MULTIGIG RT 2-R rugged, lightweight and high-speed board-to-board OpenVPX connector for use in aerospace and defense applications that are subject to extreme vibration.

Supporting high-speed protocols, these rugged connectors are designed for rugged embedded computing applications for ground defense, missile defense, electronic systems, C4ISR, and commercial and military aerospace. The connector is compliant to VITA 46, including backward compatibility with existing VITA 46 daughter cards, and features ruggedized guide hardware to increase the stability of the daughter card-to-backplane interface under shock and vibration.
