ept’s Velox® for VPX and VXS is a modular connector system for high speed backplane applications, specifically designed for backplane builders working for the defence industry and other markets that require high performance systems. VITA 46 technology brings several features to reality while maintaining the ability to operate with existing VME form factor boards.
ept Velox encompasses four different connector types that can be connected together in a modular fashion. The Velox PCB, pinless, interconnect family comprises modular components which can be used in a variety of ruggedised, vibration resistant combinations.The product series is available in four different types with the flexibility for custom pin assembly allowing designers to create a flexible backplane design.
The 1.27um (50 micro inch) heavy gold plated, double beam, resilient press-fit contacts with a rated durability of at least 200 mating cycles ensure a high-speed 10Gbps signal transmission during the entire lifetime of a system.
