ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Annapolis Micro Systems Inc. in Annapolis, Md., is integrating SMPM VITA 67.3 connectors from SV Microwave in West Palm Beach, Fla., in several high-performance embedded computing boards, for maximum RF signal density and speed to the VPX backplane.
The Annapolis Microsystems board products and SV Microwave connectors are for phased array radar, cyber security network processing, DRFM, beamforming, sensor processing, wireless communication, and radar signal processing.
The SV Microwave RF connectors are a dense and rugged high-speed coax solution that is aligned with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) standard. The connectors are available in 11- and 14-port modules that accept coaxial cable as large as 0.086 inches, with SMPM minimum pitch of 0.228 inches.
The blind-mate VPX backplane connectors are available on versions of the Annapolis Microsystems WILDSTAR 6U OpenVPX baseboards; WILDSTAR 3U OpenVPX baseboards; and WILDSTAR clock cards, which are shipping now.
The VITA 67.3 connectors mount side-by-side with other standard VITA connectivity, including VITA 66 optical connectors and MULTIGIG RT3 connectors, which support embedded computing throughput of 25 gigabits per second.
"SV Microwave's range of VITA 67.X products offers point-to-point RF connectivity from payload cards to chassis," says Hardik Parikh, SV Microwave business development manager.
"The SV Microwave connectors give us a combination of performance, high reliability, and VITA and SOSA standardization," says Noah Donaldson, chief technology officer of Annapolis Micro Systems.
