Check out the new Samtec Cable Group Tech Center video.
It’s an overview of the Samtec Cable Group, our R&D and manufacturing Technology Center focusing on precision extruded micro coax and twinax cable used for high speed / high density cable assemblies, including 26-38 AWG, 50/75/85/100 ohm impedance, and systems rated at 28+ Gbps.
Samtec Cable Group offers a variety of center conductor, dielectric, shielding, and jacket options.
Center conductor options include solid, stranded, tin-plated copper, silver-plated copper, and high-strength alloy, from 23 AWG to 38 AWG. Dielectric options include solid (FEP, LDPE) and foam (coax only, FEP).
Shielding options include serve (spiral), tape, and braid. Jacket options, all RoHS compliant, including FEP, PVC, THV, and TPU.
Next Generation Products
The Samtec Cable Group is aggressively pursuing next generation micro-coax and twinax products to solve our customer’s existing and future signal integrity challenges.
Among others, this includes ultra-low skew twinax, extreme density twinax, high frequency microwave coax cable with world class phase stability, and halogen free material choices. We are enabled by our internally developed, proprietary processes including micro cellular dielectric extrusion, co-extruded twin-ax, and state of the art closed loop process controls.
