Stouffville, ON, January 21, 2019 -- WOLF Advanced Technology (WOLF) is pleased to announce it has selected TE Connectivity's MULTIGIG RT 3 Rugged and RT 2-S Rugged connectors for its VPX 3U and VPX 6U products.
"We've worked with TE Connectivity's products for well over a decade and they've always proven to be exceedingly reliable for our military and aerospace applications", said Greg Maynard, Chief Technology Officer for WOLF.
"What's so great about these connectors is that we can push ahead to PCI Express Gen 4 connectivity with the RT 3 Rugged in new designs coming from WOLF in 2019, and we will use the RT 2-S in existing module configurations to provide even greater signal integrity head-room," Maynard added.
TE Connectivity's MULTIGIG products support the upcoming VITA 46.30 standard, which defines a higher data rate capable connector for VPX, and it is backwards compatible with existing VITA 46 backplanes. The increased bandwidth afforded by the TE Connectivity MULTIGIG RT 3 Rugged will enable higher bandwidth technologies to support Gen 5 VPX, PCIe Gen 4, Infiniband EDR, and Ethernet 100GBase-KR4.
