Electronica exhibitions and conferences have become an international franchise, with beginnings in Germany and now extending to other countries and continents. The next installment is Electronica South China, and Samtec will be there – in booth 12D13 — showing new products and technologies.
We know that most of our readers won’t be at the exhibition, but I’m giving you an overview of those new products and technologies in this blog. And BTW, I know this isn’t breaking news, but it seems that everything else is nowadays, and I really wanted to say “Breaking News!” before the end of the year.
NovaRay® Extreme Density Arrays combine extreme density and performance for 112 Gbps PAM4 per channel in 40% less space than traditional arrays. The fully-shielded differential pair design and two reliable points of contact contribute to the industry leading 4.0 Tbps aggregate data rate.
AcceleRate® is the industry’s slimmest cable system (7.6 mm wide) with direct attach technology and ultra-low skew twinax cable for 56 Gbps PAM4 speeds. This eliminates the need and variability of a transition card for improved signal integrity.
AcceleRate HD is a .635 mm high-density, multi-row mezzanine strip with up to 240 I/Os and a small footprint.
AcceleRate High-Performance Arrays are 0.635 mm pitch arrays with 112 Gbps PAM4 extreme performance and a flexible open-pin-field design.
Samtec Flyover® Technology: As bandwidth requirements rapidly increase, effectively managing heat and routing signals through lossy PCBs, vias and other components have become complex challenges. Samtec Flyover systems can help extend signal reach and density to achieve next gen speeds by routing signals via ultra-low skew twinax cable instead of through the PCB. Samtec’s proprietary co-extruded Eye Speed® twinax cable technology eliminates the performance limitations and inconsistencies of individually extruded dielectric twinax cabling. It also improves signal integrity, bandwidth and reach for high-performance system architectures.
ExaMAX® high-density backplane systems offer design flexibility to fit a variety of applications, including Flyover cable supporting 112 Gbps PAM4 and board-to-board supporting 56 Gbps PAM4.
The FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ is the first interconnect system that gives a designer the flexibility of using micro footprint high-performance optical and low-cost copper interconnects interchangeably with the same connector system.
FireFly optical products provide performance to 28 Gbps, x4 and x12 designs, a variety of end 2 options, a variety of heat sinks, extended temperature designs for military and industrial applications, and PCIe-over-fiber optical cable systems. The full line of FireFly products, and all other products mentioned above, will be on display at Electronica South China.
Precision RF: Samtec is vertically integrated from product design and fabrication, to full tech support, including launch optimization, simulation, and testing.
