Annapolis Micro Systems, a leading FPGA board and systems supplier, is now integrating SV Microwave’s SMPM VITA 67.3 Connectors in multiple high-performance COTS boards, for maximum RF signal density and speed to the VPX backplane.
The SV Microwave RF connectors are a dense and rugged high-speed coax solution that is aligned with the SOSA™ technical standard. They are available in 11- and 14-port modules that accept up to Ø.086” coaxial cable, with SMPM minimum pitch of .228”.
The blind mate VPX backplane connectors are available on the latest versions of these boards:
These boards 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 a remarkable 25Gbps.
“SV Microwave’s range of VITA 67.X products offers point-to-point RF connectivity from payload cards to chassis,” said Hardik Parikh, SV Microwave Business Development Manager. “To be selected as the VITA 67.3 connector supplier for such high-performing boards is very exciting for us and a strong validation of our connector products.”
“The SV Microwave connectors give us a combination of superior performance, high reliability, and VITA and SOSA standardization,” said Noah Donaldson, Annapolis Micro Systems Chief Technology Officer. “This state-of-the-art connectivity allows us to utilize the full performance capability of our new 100GbE products.”
