VIPER® Connectors

Shielded, High-Density, High-Speed, Press-Fit Connectors

Amphenol Backplane Systems introduces VIPER® , a powerful new shielded, high-density, high-speed press-fit backplane and daughtercard interconnect platform, providing 63 differential signals per linear inch. VIPER was designed to meet the demanding requirements of current and next-generation rugged military, aerospace, and industrial applications. The VIPER connector platform offers the ability to scale from 80 Mbps to over 10 Gbps while retaining the same VITA 46 backplane slot pitch at 20.3mm to 25.4mm. The new backplane signal contacts incorporate a highly reliable 4-points-of-contact beam design. The daughtercard and backplane contacts are stamped using Olin's high quality C7025 cooper alloy and plated using nickel underplate with 50 microinches of gold on all mating surfaces. Amphenol offers multiple variations, including RF and fiber optic modules into the VIPER assembly providing design options for both standard for custom configurations.
