In March 2019, we rolled out a new homepage panel, a few new content experiences, and a new level of interactivity to our locations search.
Here are the major updates to Samtec.com for March 2019.
New High Speed Cable Homepage Panel
On top of our core offering of board-to-board products, Samtec also offers a wide variety of high-speed cable solutions with industry leading technology and support.
These products include innovations such as our Flyover® architecture, many flexibility and customization options, and manufacturing capabilities to support a vast array of design needs.
In March, we rolled out a new homepage panel featuring our high-speed cable products, which leads to an overview page with more information.
The panel will display 33% of the time on the homepage among a total of three homepage panels. If you don’t see it, refresh a few times to check it out.
Updated Locations Page Features
We first rolled out our new Locations search a couple of months ago. Since then, we have been working on some great feedback that we received to continue to improve this new tool.
Here are a few updates we’ve added:
- A full screen interactive map (previously this was only about 50% of the page)
- Filters to search by Samtec Direct Sales or Distributor Locations
- Automatic navigation as the user clicks on an area in the filters
- Additional interactivity between the filters on the left and the map
- Updated pin positions for accuracy and easier interactions
We’ll do a full writeup on this new application soon. Until then, check out the updates on the Locations page here.
Video Thumbnails on Product Family Pages
We’ve done several updates in the past few months to strengthen the presence of videos on Samtec.com. With nearly 150 videos featuring products, demos, tradeshows, and more, we needed to do a better job of featuring this content.
We have added a new heading on our family pages that will feature product videos specifically as a standalone type of content.
Previously, these were listed under the Downloads heading, and were somewhat difficult to find.
Just navigate to any family page and scroll down to the Videos heading to check them out. Most major products have at least one video, and some have multiple.
Here is an example on our Q2 family page.
New JIIA Coaxpress Standard Page
Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA) is a Japan-based organization leading technological innovation of industrial imaging. JIIA promotes a global community for organizations related to industrial imaging, thus contributing to the development of industrial imaging standards and products worldwide.
We have developed a new content experience for this industry standard in our upgraded standards section of the website.
CoaXPress (CXP) is the world’s leading standard for high-speed imaging in professional and industrial imaging applications such as machine vision, medical imaging, life sciences, broadcast, and defense.
Check it out here to see how we’re supporting this standard – https://www.samtec.com/standards/jiia
Release of New Technology Overview Guide
New to our product literature section of the website is our Technology Overview Guide.
This literature piece focuses on Samtec’s Technology Centers, and the unique global business model and infrastructure we have developed to enable and ensure collaboration and innovation across our Tech Centers and throughout our company.
Because our Tech Centers are not limited by the boundaries of traditional business units, we are able to work in a fully integrated capacity that enables true collaboration and innovation.
This allows us to offer our customers a unique blend of high-level design and development of advanced interconnect systems and technologies, along with industry-leading signal integrity expertise, effective strategies and technical support.
