Virginia Panel Corporation Introduces
VTAC High Speed Data Connector

WAYNESBORO, VA – July 23, 2014 – Today we are seeing more and more breakthroughs in the  test and measurement industry, such as unmanned aircraft, delivery drones, advanced medical robotics, electronic vehicles, smart devices, and consumer electronics. These military and commercial test applications utilize the latest technologies and, in many cases, require higher data rates. Virginia Panel Corporation (VPC) offers innovative solutions tosupports this growing demand. 

VPC’s new, configurable VTAC High Speed Data (HSD) connector will increase your testing capabilities by allowing test engineers to test devices that communicate at greater speeds. Our VTAC HSD connector features a data transfer rate of more than 12.5 Gbps per differential pair. Gold-plated, self-aligning contacts are specifically designed to reduce crosstalk to increase signal integrity during HSD transfers while maximizing cycle life. Each VTAC HSD connector has a cycle life of 10,000 without signal degradation.

TheVTAC HSD 90 series module accommodates 34 connectors with increased signal density. Our new module now allows up to 272 signal connections, making it the highest signal density solution available in the single-wide 90 series module family. These precision welded connectors are compatible with several HSD standards including USB 3.0, HDMI, DVI & DVI-1, RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet, Twinax, QSFP, and Infiniband for all your HSD testing requirements. VTAC is also available in the i2 Micro iCon 169 signal pin connector.To learn more about our new VTAC HSD and other VPC products visit www.vpc.com/VTAC.

A demo of our VTAC HSD solution will be displayed in Booth 320 at the 20th annual NIWeek, the world’s leading graphical system design conference and exhibition hosted by National Instruments. NIWeek takes place August 4th-7th at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas, and features technical sessions, interactive demonstrations, and keynotes on the latest technology to accelerate productivity for software-defined systems in test, measurement, and control. More than 3,800 engineers, educators, and scientists from around the world are expected to attend the conference.
