Amphenol TCS (ATCS) is the leader in high-speed, high-density connection systems, designing and manufacturing the industry's leading high-speed, high-density connectors and backplane systems. Amphenol TCS solves system design challenges with integrated interconnect solutions for application in the networking, communications, storage, and computer server markets.
Amphenol TCS was founded in 1968 as a division of Teradyne, Inc. and acquired by Amphenol Corporation in December of 2005. Amphenol Corp. is the world's second largest connector company, producing electronic and fiber optic connectors, cable, and interconnect systems for applications converging technologies of voice, video and data communications, industrial/automotive and military/aerospace.
High-Speed, High-Density Connectors
Our broad range of connector products enable design engineers to achieve their performance targets. Whether the priority is a proven cost-optimized solution or the best performing connector on the market, Amphenol TCS is your source for reliable high-speed and high-density connectors.
High-Technology Printed Circuits
Amphenol TCS manufactures high-technology, high-reliability printed circuit boards in our North American plant and manages cost-effective global sourcing for high-volume PCB production. Our printed circuit capabilities are among the world's broadest and most advanced, including experience with a wide variety of materials to enable increasing signal speeds, deep microvias, buried, blind and backdrilled vias, sequential lamination, panel sizes from 18" x 24 " up to 24" x 54", layer counts to 60+ and board thicknesses up to .500". Amphenol's printed circuit fabrication facility is MIL-PRF-31032/1A, /2, MIL-P-55110 and ITAR certified.
Backplane System Solutions
