Samtec is presenting its full line of interconnects including High Speed Board-to-Board, High Speed Cable Assemblies, Micro/Rugged, Flexible Stacking, Optics and Precision RF. We are in a new location this year: we’re still in Hall B3, but we’re now at Stand 129, across from Molex.
mPower (Ultra Micro Power)
The new Ultra Micro Power system, the UMPT and UMPS series, offers design flexibility as a power-only interconnect system or a two-piece system for power/signal applications. Mated heights of 5, 7, 8, and 10 mm allow UMP connectors to be used for power with other popular Samtec high-speed connector systems.
Rated at 17.1 amps per blade, on 2 mm pitch, with tin or 10µ” gold plated power blades, these small form factor interconnects are available in a choice of 2, 3, 4, and 5 pin counts, with optional weld tabs for increased mechanical strenght of the part to the board.
High Density, Rugged Signal Integrity
The rugged Edge Rate® contact system is designed, simulated and optimized for 50 Ω and 100 Ω systems and is rated at 56 Gbps PAM4. The new ERM6, ERF6 series, .635 mm pitch terminal and socket strips, have an extremely slim 2.5 mm body width to optimize board density. It is available with up to 120 positions in a two row design. The 120 position system has a small footprint of 107.15 square mm (.165 square inches).
Ultra High Density Edge Card
This socket meets the demands for higher density and bandwidth (it’s rated at 56 Gpbs PAM4) while also optimizing cost. It’s PCIe Gen 4 compliant, and is available with up to 300 total I/Os with weld tabs to increase the mechanical strenght of the part to the board.

Samtec’s AcceleRate® HD is a 0.635 mm pitch, multi-row interconnect system that provides an ultra-high density interface and next-generation bandwidth. It features up to 240 total I/Os in a mere 1.88 square inch (12.1 square cm) of PCB real estate.
The mated stack height is a low 5 mm, with 7 mm and 10 mm stack heights to follow. The system incorporates the Edge Rate® contact system, which is optimized for signal integrity performance. It is rated to 56 Gbps with PAM4 modulation. This is Samtec’s ADM6, ADF6 Series.
AcceleRate® Cable Assembly
Samtec’s AcceleRate® cable assembly is the slimmest in the industry with a 7.6 mm body width ideal for closer proximity to the IC. The high-density 2-row design features 8 and 16 pair configurations on a 0.635 mm pitch for up to 92 pairs per square inch.
Rated to 56 Gbps PAM4, this assembly supports Samtec Flyover™ technology by avoiding over lossy PCB via ultra-low skew twinax Eye Speed® cable. This proprietary co-extruded cable supports next-generation performance with extended reach and system flexibility. The mating pcb level connector is the ARF6 series.
FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™
Samtec’s 28 Gbps FireFly™ optical engine brings its industry-leading density to the 100 Gbps Datacom/Telecom and HPC markets. Designed for interchangeability, FireFly™ copper and optical both use the same micro connector system with easy insertion/removal and trace routing.
Available in extended temperature and PCIe®-over-Fiber versions, FireFly™ supports the latest Ethernet, InfiniBand™and Fibre Channel protocol specifications.
28 Gbps Product Demonstrator
The 28 Gbps Product Demonstrator is an active system that showcases Samtec interconnect products at 28 Gbps and beyond. The Demonstrator is a small version of a real system. It uses active retiming devices at 28 Gbps, for short reach and medium reach channels, and it incorporates most of Samtec’s 28 Gbps products.
This demonstration is different from those of other connector suppliers. Many of those demonstrations preferentially showcase one or two differential pairs in a channel through one connector or cable assembly. The demonstrator concurrently generates 80 PRBS31 signals at 28 Gbps. Each signal passes through one or more Samtec connectors, and we measure bit errors, signal amplitude, and eye patterns, all in real-time.
