Ruggedized VME64x, VITA 60, VITA 66 Interconnects

VME64Xphoto-on-whiteAmphenol Aerospace developed the Ruggedized VME64x in response to the military trend towards VME64x and the utilization of COTS Boards and Chassis. The Amphenol Ruggedized VME64x interconnect has a more rugged interface than standard connectors for improved vibration durability. It meets the needs for a harsh environment connector requiring Level 2 maintenance. Military and commercial aviation, military vehicles and GPS systems are examples of markets that need the ruggedized VME64x connector solution from Amphenol. The Amphenol Ruggedized VME64x connector mounts to standard VME64x cards and backplanes, but it does not mate to other types of VME commercial connectors.

The MRC flange mounting plugs are supplied with rigid contacts that are flat to the front surface of the connector.  This feature allows it to be used in applications such as ruggedized displays, radios, and routers that have potential to come in contact with dirt and sand during use. The MRC can be easily cleaned by simply wiping off debris whereas standard pin and socket style connectors tend to be more difficult to remove debris once it has been compacted in the contacts.

The MRC cable assemblies feature connectors with Spring loaded contacts and two coupling MRC-9pin-ethernetcablestyles (Push/Pull and Push w/ ¼ turn lock). Both of these coupling styles mate with the standard flange mounting plug. Cable assemblies are available in various lengths and can either be supplied as double ended with MRC connectors on both ends or with standard COTS RJ45, USB, HDMI connections on one end. Additional cable materials and connector configuration are available; please consult our product team with your requirements.  

High Speed Protocol Guide



highd 2 The HD38999 family of connectors has 30% more contact density than the highest density Mil Spec D38999 connectors of its size. This series of connectors was designed to utilize mil specified D38999 components with the exception of the contacts and inserts arrangement. Utilizing existing mil-qualified AS39029 size 23 contacts and D38999 insert materials, these connectors are essentially a drop-in replacement for the standard D38999 connector.

HD38999 Connectors available styles:

  • Aluminum
  • Composite
  • Stainless Steel
  • Sealed (IP67)
  • Filtered
