TE Connectivity's (TE) press-fit stacking connector, a 56-position VPX footprint-compatible connector, is designed for rugged, high speed applications. Press-fit stacking connectors satisfy the need for 10Gb/s digital signals in high density packaging, according to the company.

Suited for space saving in military electronics and commercial aerospace systems, TE’s press-fit stacking connectors are well suited for mezzanine and rigid flex board-to-board attachment and provide reliable signal integrity. Their footprint matches VPX daughtercard layouts for low-noise, gas tight connections.

The connectors are end-to-end stackable to reach higher pin counts and use eye-of-needle compliant pins for solderless application.
