As data rate requirements approach and surpass 112 Gbps PAM4, developers are challenged with balancing increasing throughput, scalability and density demands with concerns such as power consumption, signal integrity, cost and time-to-market. Samtec helps address these challenges with industry-leading expertise in high-performance interconnect design, and innovative strategies and technologies for the demands of next generation data transmission.
The following are links to live product demonstrations, products, and technologies, that are on display in the Samtec booth at the OCP Virtual Summit.
LIVE PRODUCT DEMONSTRATIONS
Direct Connect™ To Silicon Package
Samtec Direct Connect™ technology enables 56 Gbps PAM4 and 112 Gbps PAM4 systems that eludes BGA traces. With Direct Connect, Samtec Flyover® cable assemblies plug directly into the package. This is an enabler for many other technologies, including AI, machine learning, 5G, emulation, and high-performance computing.
Si-Fly™ is a new, Direct Connect 112 Gbps PAM4, low-profile, high-density cable system.
112 Gbps PAM4 QSFP-DD Connector System Enabled By Samtec Flyover®
This demo, a collaboration between Samtec and Alphawave, emulates next generation data center equipment architectures, and incorporates Samtec Flyover® to improve signal integrity and architectural flexibility. Samtec Flyover routes critical high-speed signals from the ASIC, above lossy PCB materials, directly to the panel, utilizing ultra-low-skew twinax cable.
A Connector Solution To Achieve 112 Gbps Data Rates
As data rate requirements approach and surpass 112 Gbps PAM4, developers are challenged with balancing increasing throughput, scalability and density demands with concerns such as power consumption, signal integrity, cost and time-to-market. This video explains how Samtec Flyover addresses these challenges.
Chassis-to-Chassis, Mid-Board Connectivity Via 5 Meter Cable Backplane
A popular demonstration at Super Computing 2019 (SC19) was a collaboration between Samtec and eSilicon that emulates next generation data center architectures for typical 19 inch rack-mount applications.
