CONNECTOR IS HERE
On May 30th, 2023, the HYPERBITS connector was born in Seville, Spain, at Alter Technology in collaboration between Performance Interconnect and Alter Technology Spain.
This marks a significant milestone in the development of a new generation of high performance harsh environment connectors for embedded computing starting with compactPCI Serial Space applications.
An innovative connector and a gamechanger in the interconnect industry, HYPERBITS eliminates the mated pair concept because it blind-mates a daughtercard directly with the footprint in the backplane while providing superior transmission line integrity with lowest losses through the connector. The internal proprietary architecture employs advanced edge coupled stripline design combined with materials featuring the highest performance parameters available today.
The solderless, non-damaging, and repeatable interface with the PCB through-holes is achieved via proprietary S-FECT™ technology for both 72 and 96 position connectors.
The future of HYPERBITS is challenging and exciting with a detailed performance evaluation planned at Alter Technology in Seville, and further development, industrialization and qualification to ESCC-3401 at Alter Technology France in Toulouse.
This project came to life thanks to the trust and support from a number of very special people, a lot of effort and foremost, a lot of ambition.
We are grateful for all the help and trust received and for the financial aid to support the project.
Performance Interconnect and Alter Technology would like to extend many thanks to the component engineering teams at ESTEC and CNES, and to Thales Alenia Space in Toulouse for the support accorded to propel this project from concept to reality.
Performance Interconnect and Mindreach i2i conveys our combined gratitude and recognition to our valuable suppliers for the joint development collaboration and the quality products and services delivered.
NEW STARTUP CHANGING THE GAME IN THE CONNECTOR INDUSTRY
PERFORMANCE INTERCONNECT SAS was founded in August of 2022 with the objective to make available the S-FECT™ Technology to all industries and all users.
The S-FECT™ Technology is a game-changing interconnect solution which eliminates the need to solder connectors to printed circuit boards and eliminates the need to employ press-fit technology which requires special installation tooling and is damaging to PCBs. The Slide-Fit Electrical Contact Termination Technology is now available to anyone for new connector designs or replacement connector designs including retrofits due to obsolescence with full backward compatibility with existing PCB footprints.
PERFORMANCE INTERCONNECT SAS secures non-exclusive license for HYPERBITS™ connector

The HYPERBITS connector developed by MINDREACH i2i SL of Andorra is a single piece connector solution meeting the requirements of CPCI-S.0 R2.0 specification and is designed to meet the performance requirements of the ESCC 3401 specification. The HYPERBITS™ connector embodies several innovations in interconnect technology, it is a single piece connector featuring S-FECT™ Technology, it is able to blind-mate computing cards directly to backplanes with an improved high-speed signal transmission line permitting higher data-transfer rates and higher current carrying capabilities. The HYPERBITS™ connector fully eliminates the backplane connector therefore effectively resulting in full system cost reduction, a reduction in the number of components on the bill of materials and reductions of assembly and inspection times.
