Tyco Electronics, a unit of Tyco Int. Ltd, and Framatome Connectors Int. (FCI), has agreed to collaborate on next-generation mezzanine and backpanel connectors. Through this alliance, the technical and development expertise of both Tyco Electronics and FCI will be utilized to develop and market dual sourced products.

The first two products under this agreement are Tyco's MultiGig RT backplane connector system and FCI's GIG-Array? mezzanine connector; the result aims to be "certified" second source product lines for the marketplace. Intermated product qualification tests will be conducted to ensure that products are truly interchangeable and intermateable.
