Virginia Panel Corporation
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 is an industry leader in mass interconnect & interface solutions.

Connector Technology is facing new and ever-growing challenges. With the advent of smaller packaging, higher contact densities and high speed signals, connector companies are faced with new requirements every day. To meet these requirements, Virginia Panel Corporation is equipped with the latest technology for manufacturing interface systems. VPC provides the customer with the most advanced , high quality connector interface available in the market.
Docking / Blind Mate
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 G Series offers a range of I/O options in a small footprint. Engage up to 4,320 signal contacts using QuadraPaddle technology with the G18 solution.
Platform solutions offer all the benefits of VPC rack panel solutions plus a table for ITA fixtures. This table allows easier engagement, proper alignment, and takes up minimal space.
Pull Thru Solutions
Allows pull through removal of connector modules and instrumentation from chassis backplane.
Contacts & Modules
VPC offers a wide array of contacts and modules with a variety of connection options that are configurable for virtually any interconnect requirement.
VPC offers two types of signal contacts ideal for low voltage and low current applications.
VPC’s line of power contacts are designed for high current applications and vary in amperage up to 150 Amps.
VPC offers an impressive line of coax contacts including 50 & 75 Ohm, 20/26 GHz, 40 GHz, and 50 GHz. Module options vary by contact type and even include hybrid modules.
VPC thermocouple contacts offer match pairing for primarily K-type thermocouples.
VPC fiber optic patchcords are available in Polymer Optical Fiber and Multimode. We also have the capability to provide specialty fiber optic patchcords and cables.
VPC pneumatic contacts are ideal for air pressure applications such as industrial automation.
VPC’s 2-port position Vacuum modules are available with or without a filter. Made of black anodized aluminum, they are rated to withstand temperatures between -65° C and 200 ° C.
VPC twinaxial contacts provide differential voltage options most commonly used in digital and data applications
