VPC formerly, Virginia Panel Corporation, designs, manufactures and markets Interface Connector products for both commercial and military applications. Among its credits, VPC has developed the standard interface system for the United States Air Force Modular Automated Test Equipment Program (MATE). In 1987, General Electric selected VPC to design and develop the United States Navy standard electrical interface for the CASS Program. As a member of the ARINC 608A committee, VPC was instrumental in developing the standard for the Interface Connector Assembly (ICA) used in commercial air transport testing. Additionally, as the VXI standard developed, VPC was the first to offer the most comprehensive connector interface available for VXI.
VPC’s iDock Series features engageless frames for use with automatic test handling equipment to mate test adapters. Automatic docking connectors greatly reduce testing time and increase accuracy.
VPC’s latest high speed technology allows for concerns about cycle life and lost time due to PCB soldering and change out to be a thing of the past. The unique design of VPC’s VTAC, QuadraPaddle, and Micro Power SIM connectors allows for change out and replacement of pass-thru inserts while preserving the right angle connection to the PCB. VPC’s SIM module offers up to 34 positions and allows for mixed input/output combinations.
