Coaxial Contacts Bring RF To VPX Platforms

SV Microwave says its latest floating SMPM coaxial contacts ensure excellent RF performance in any VPX platform mating condition. The high-density VITA 67 devices, also designed for side-by-side implementation with VITA 46 hardware, can be cabled to most 0.086 and smaller coaxial cable types. Specific parts include the SF1132-6037, a four-position motherboard SMPM module for VITA 67.1; the SF1132-6036, an eight-position motherboard SMPM module for VITA 67.2; the SF9321-60015, an SMPM plug-in card four-position coaxial module for VITA 67.1; and the SF9321-60013 SMPM plug-in card eight-position coaxial module for VITA 67.2. The 3221-40022 and3221-40019 are SMPM contacts for 0.086-in and 0.047-in cables, respectively. The standardized microwave interconnects comply with MIL-STD 810 for shock and vibration. Their rear-panel interface accelerates disconnection and replacement of cards, and an SV connector retention mechanism facilitates assembly and disassembly into a daughtercard module. Applications include aerospace and defense systems, such as SIGINT, EWR, ground-basestation/communication systems, avionics, and radar.
