Over the past few years, Samtec has expanded its portfolio of Characterization and Development Kits. Engineers and designers demand the best tools for system prototyping.
From concept and prototype to development and production, Samtec-designed Characterization and Development Kits featuring high-speed interconnect solutions to help simplify design. Helpfully, they reduce time to market for hobbyists, tinkerers, start-ups and OEMs alike.
Easy Access via Landing Page
Engineers want instant access to the information they need. Fortunately, technical details about Samtec-designed kits are available at www.samtec.com/kits.
Engineers can easily see all types of development kits Samtec offers. Additionally, they can click on the appropriate link to get access to kit overviews, features, applications and ordering information. Product Brief and other technical documentation are also available.
Further, addition technical support is only a click away. Samtec’s Application Engineering team can be reached via chat or e-mail.
Standards-based Development Kits
Samtec is very active in Industry Standards. Samtec’s partners and customers design and manufacture various kits that feature Samtec interconnect solution.
A couple of examples are VITA 57.1 FMC and VITA 57.4 FMC+. As FMC/FMC+ leverages open platforms and standards, developers are working to further the adaptation of FPGA technologies in numerous applications.
More and more solutions leveraging VITA 57 FMC/FMC+ are coming to market. Typical VITA 57 products include:
- FMC/FMC+ daughter cards/modules
- FPGA and RFSoC-based development boards
- Networking cards using FPGAs
- FPGA-based characterization platforms
- Embedded systems such as networking development bridge cards
Easy Access via Tech Specs Pages
Engineers like to make sure the tech they choose works. Rightfully speaking, they want to find design examples as “proof” their design selections are correct.
New open-source electronics platforms always come to market, whether Snickerdoodle or Maker Kits. Samtec customers want to know if a particular connector has been used before. That information should be easy to find.
In response, Samtec has added development kits examples to the appropriate connector series Tech Specs page. The image below shows the new feature.
This new Tech Specs feature lists Samtec-designed kits. Similarly, it lists solutions from our partners and customers. A maximum of three kits per series will be listed.
Samtec will update this content on a rolling basis. Comments are feedback are welcome via e-mail.
