The R-VPX series is a commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) high-speed, high-density, ruggedized VITA 46-compliant connector series. The connectors are designed to be utilized in open architecture embedded computing systems with modules available for 3U and 6U VPX slot profiles, and are inter-mateable and inter-mountable with any VITA 46-compliant connector. The connectors incorporate PCB wafer construction with customized wafer-loading patterns, allowing for upgrades in existing VPX systems.

R-VPX is a pin-less backplane, low-mating force connector series that supports Ethernet, Fiber Channel, InfiniBand and other protocols. The connectors handle up to 140 signals per inch, supports .8-inch card slot pitches, and can be combined with high-power modules, RF modules (VITA 67) and optical modules (VITA 66).
