This series is capable of running Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0/ USB 3.0, HDMI and 10 Gigabit Ethernet when specified and designated to a specific configuration.
 plating Alternate to Cadmium, RoHS-Compliant Platings: Commercial, industrial & military markets are rapidly moving away from restricted materials such as Cadmium (Cd) & Hexavalent Chromium (Cr(VI)). Both of these restricted materials are toxic and known carcinogens. Amphenol is offering an alternative finish that complies with all customer requirements tied to these specifications. MIL-DTL-38999, Rev L has established new service classes as alternative finishes addressing these requirements for Cadmium replacement.

Integrated Systems

integrated sys From Avionics to Ground and Naval Systems, Amphenol's Integrated Systems solutions are found aboard commercial airliners, helicopters, Navy and Air Force Fighters, C41 electronics, missiles, ground vehicles, Homeland Security Systems, and Navy warships around the world.

Amphenol Integrated Systems tackles problems such as PWB routing, signal integrity, mechanical robustness, and thermal reliability concurrently rather than independently by value-added applications engineering support. Solving complex packaging challenges depends on making sure that environmental, mechanical, and electrical factors are all addressed at the system-level. By taking this system-level perspective and focusing on these factors, Amphenol Integrated Systems is able to meet your program's most challenging packaging requirements. We are an extension of your design team, providing expert design and applications engineering assistance every step of the way to ensure program success. This is a perspective that other connector, board, and backplane assembly suppliers cannot match.


Access familyAmphenol offers a complete collection of backshells, protective caps, and other accessories for all of our D38999 connectors. Custom solutions are available upon request. Consult an Amphenol Representative for more information.

  • Printed Circuit Boards
  • Filter Connectors

    Amphenol provides a wide range of filtering solutions. You can select your options for your particular interference threats - VHF, UHF, MF1, HF or other filter ranges, then couple with a connector package of your choice. Or give Amphe­nol your custom shell design requirements for assistance in designing your unique filter solution.

    EMI Filter connectors are intended for use in temperatures from –55°C to +125°C. Attenuation will change with feed-through current and temperature.

    To assure reliability, connectors may be subjected to an attenuation performance test verifying proper assembly and grounding of the filters. Attenuation data on filter per­formance is stated in reference to a 50 ohm impedance
    system in order to allow filter performance to be more
    eas­ily translated into real world impedances. Those interested in determining the expected filter perfor­mance in an impedance system other than 50 ohms may refer to page 285 of this catalog or may contact Amphenol Aerospace for further assistance.
