Hercules Adlink 002a_M-Logo added1Meritec’s HERCULES Interconnection System embedded in the mating rugged circular MIL-38999 shell, provides both a durable and high bandwidth interconnect scheme suitable for many Military and Aerospace ruggedized high bandwidth applications, not previously accommodated by industry standards.

The HERCULES is the first of the High BandWidth (HBW) Family to be released in MIL-38999 Series III sizes: 9, 13, 17 & 23.

Meeting protocols such as USB 2.0 & 3.0, IB, SAS, SATA, Serial I/O, PCIe, dependent on the shell size, you have many build options. While running at 10Gb/s per pair with up to 44 differential pairs, you do the math.

Hercules 10 Gb/s Ruggedized COTS High-Density Interconnect System

Hercules 10 Gbs COTS

Meritec Hercules ARINC Insert Series

Using the reliability of ARINC and the signal integrity and density of Hercules, Meritec now provides a fully compatible insert for the ARINC 600 series. Designed to work with the shell size 1, 2 & 3, cavities A, B, D & E the insert provides 78 differential pairs, 39 lanes and supports up to 3 amps per contact when needed. ARINC no longer has to be limited to low-speed data and power distribution. With the Hercules ARINC insert, speeds of 10 Gbs can be realized maintaining the absolute best in high-speed performance.
Hercules ARINC Insert Series

Meritec Hercules Board-Interface (HBI) System

As part of Meritec’s HBI system we now offer a high speed transition flexible printed circuit (FPC) designed exclusively for Hercules receptacle to board mating. The Hercules Board Interface Series completes the IO run from board to box – box to board. While providing unprecedented signal density, the pinout accommodates differential pairs, coaxial and single lines for hook up or power. All IO lines are accommodated! Giving you the flexibility to use this transition flex for all of your Hercules designs.
