JAS electrical design should utilize commercial connector standards when applicable. The VPX plug-in module to backplane connector is a Tyco Electronics MultiGig RT2 connector system which was chosen for its rugged mechanical performance and high-speed electrical performance, rated to 6.4 Gb/s and demonstrated to support data rates greater than 10 Gb/s. The connector utilizes multiple printed circuit board style wafers, each with 7 signals or rows, on the plug-in modules and shrouded contacts on the backplane. It is available with differential pair, single-ended and power wafers. A 6U VPX board features six 16-column 7-row RT2 connectors and one 8-column 7-row RT2 connector, while a 3U board features two 16-column 7-row RT2 connectors and one 8-column 7-row RT2 connector. This enables a 6U VPX board to feature a total of 707 non-power electrical contacts and a total of 464 signal contacts.
