The VP Connectors are designed to be introduced into new defense programs, which require a smaller connector design, increased performance up to 65 GHz, and a low cost solution. These are also well suited for the 40Gbps Optical Communication Market which values the connector's hermeticity and ease of installation.
Compensation for launch onto microstrip is designed into the connector. This greatly simplifies the mounting hole.
The 0.24 mm (9.5 mil) center pin to microstrip interface is done using an Anritsu V110-1 Stress Relief Contact.
- Some engineers use a pin-overlap design, which allows the pin to be soldered directly to the trace.
- Ribbon bonding can be used to connect the pin to the trace.
- The pin can be attached to the trace using silver epoxy.
