Technical note Dark Tin Zinc (SnZn) protective plating on MIL Spec type connectors
This paper focuses on the properties and characterization of the Amphenol Socapex Tin-Zinc electro-co-deposit, specifically used as a sacrificial plating for aluminum connectors shells protection.
MIL-DTL-38999 specification  is the guideline to drive the finished goods functional properties and performances, particularly in terms of stringent environmental solicitations (corrosion resistance, wear, extreme temperature exposure …). Additionally, the authors describe several tin whiskers basics and how the relevant mitigating technologies have been implemented in the plating architecture and process.

R-VPX construction and intermateability
R-VPX connector meets or exceeds all of the requirements called out in VITA 46 and Telecordia GR-1217-CORE-i02 test specifications.
R-VPX Evo 2 : fastest VITA 46.30 connectr-vpx_white_paper.pdf (amphenol-socapex.com)ors in the world
The changes in technology where R-VPX cnnectors are used has rapidly evolved in recent years, specifically driving a demand for higher data rates from copper contact based connectors, which have typically resided in the 10 & 16 Gbps speed realm. The fastest connector in the market to date is performing to 25 Gbps, but the market demands even faster speeds. This is where Amphenol’s new EVO2 R-VPX connector is designed to dominate; as the first and only 32 Gbps+ VITA 46.30 connector available.
