In the world of advanced interconnect solutions, VITA 88 connectors with the help of Samtec have emerged as the next evolution of XMC. Learning from what Samtec helped develop when going from the FMC to FMC+ standards the next generation of XMC proves to be ready for future rugged systems. Let’s delve into the world of VITA 88 connectors to understand how they are helping designers prepare for their next platform.
VITA 88 Connectors: Empowering Higher-Speed Applications
With increasing demands for data-intensive applications in aerospace, defense, and telecommunication sectors, VITA 88 connectors excel in meeting stringent performance requirements. These next-generation XMC+ designs will utilize an updated solder footprint and blade/beam style contact system.
The result is superior SI supporting PCIe® 5.0 (32 GT/s) and 100 GbE operation, and improved mechanical performance and durability. All of this is achievable at stacks up to 18 mm.
