Fairview Microwave, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of on-demand RF, microwave and mmWave components, has announced the release of their VITA 67 multi-port connector blocks. VITA 67 is a standard for blind mate coax connectors that defines how RF connections are made between a backplane and plug-in modules. The VITA 67 multi-port connector blocks are designed to provide high density RF connections in challenging environments while minimizing space requirements, weight and cost.
The VITA 67 multi-port connector blocks are engineered for side-by-side implementation with VITA 46 hardware and they are compatible with 0.086-in. and smaller diameter coaxial cables. These features make these multi-port connector blocks ideal for use in aerospace and defense applications. The unique SV connector retention mechanism of the VITA 67 multi-port connector blocks increases the ease of assembly and disassembly of the daughter card module versus competitive designs. In addition, these connectors can withstand numerous flexures directly behind the connectors without weakening or deteriorating. The connector blocks also utilize existing and proven SMPM interfaces, providing substantial advantages in compatibility, reliability and cost-effectiveness.
Constructed with an IP67 rating and superior shock and vibration resistance, these VITA 67 multi-port connector blocks ensure consistent operation in even the harshest environments. The VITA 67 multi-port connector blocks do not require any special adapters, streamlining the system and enhancing its performance and reliability. Fairview’s new VITA 67 multi-port connector blocks are in-stock and available for same-day shipping with no minimum order quantities.
