VITA 88 XMC+ Standard Products and Support

VITA 88 XMC+ Standard Products and Support

Based on XMC, VITA 88.0 XMC+ defines an alternative connector from the same family used in FMC/FMC+. While not intermateable with VITA 42.0 connectors, the VITA 88.0 connector is designed to be backwards compatible with VITA 42.0 electrical footprints. This allows designers to improve existing VITA 42.0 and/or VITA 61.0 designs by swapping connectors.

Next generation XMC+ designs utilize an updated solder footprint and blade/beam style contact system. The result is superior SI supporting PCIe® 5.0 (32 GT/s) and 100 GbE operation, and improved mechanical performance and durability. All of this is achievable at stacks up to 18 mm.

VITA 88 – SEARAY™

Borrowing from the FMC/FMC+ design community, the XMC+ connector is a modified solder ball-equipped SEARAY™ that provides lower mating/unmating force and improved performance offered by blade & beam contacts.

  • VITA 88.0 XMC+ connectors solder to existing VITA 42.0/VITA 61.0 electrical footprints, providing backward compatibility in most applications that adhere to traditional layout guidelines.
  • Elevated terminal and standard socket connectors improve channel performance and follow traditional XMC geometry.
  • Robust housing features protect contacts from stubbing or bent pins.
  • Rated at 1,000 cycles, the VITA 88.0 contact system increases mating durability over VITA 42.0/VITA 61.0, both rated at 500 cycles.
  • IPC Class 3 compliant solder charges available in both tin-lead and lead-free RoHS versions.
  • Available in 10 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm, and 18 mm stack heights.

VITA 88 - JSOM

To achieve backwards electrical compatibility, VITA 88.0 utilizes a narrowed standoff to accommodate the alternate connector assemblies.

  • VITA 88.0 defines the use of specialized rectangular standoffs to accommodate the XMC+ connectors.
  • Mechanically supports stack heights of 10 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm, and 18 mm.
