VITA 67

Multicoaxial RF backplane connection system


HUBER+SUHNER VITA 67 is the first true high-density and high-performance 65 GHz coaxial interconnect system on the market. Incorporating  the solderless Minibend bend-to-the-end technology tightest bending radius (0.06”/1.5 mm) and right behind the connector. The snap-in captivation method guarantees  quick, easy and precise installations without tooling or loose parts. VITA 67 is designed for side-by-side implementation with VITA 46 and VITA 66 hardware. It can be assembled with diameter 0.086" and smaller cable types.

Features and benefits:
  • Solderless bend-to-the-end technology ensures durability
  • Simplest connector installation saves time
  • Frequency range up to 65 GHz delivers excellent performance
  • Extreme phase stability vs. temperature and bending increases system accuracy

VITA tools

HUBER+SUHNER VITA 67 connector blocks utilize a snap-in captivation method of the SMPM connector allowing for "one-and-done" installation of the cable assembly into the connector block without the use of any tools and easily-misplaced loose parts as competitors solutions. De-mating the connector from the block requires the use of a single-motion plunger tool to engage the snap ring and free the connector.
