FCI (Etters, PA) has developed a more advanced version of its AirMax VS (virtual shield) connector system that sets new industry benchmark in terms of cost/performance ratio for 12.5 Gb/s data rate applications. AirMax VS2 leverages the signal integrity (SI) and mechanical improvements and innovations brought by AirMax VSe, retains a full drop-in and mating compatibility with AirMax VS, and provides a more competitive cost position for users. In particular, AirMax VS2 brings the following improvements over AirMax VS:

  • Better signal integrity at 12.5 Gb/s with IEEE 802.3ap compliance and significant headroom.
  • Better mechanical rigidity with wider IMLA wafers and longer engaging slots.
  • Easier automated application with Flat Rock application tools and “Eye of Needle” (EON) true position.
  • Better density and lower complexity through integrated guiding pins and power contacts.
