January 2021 was a busy month for us on the web. We released a couple new features for the Cart, added some cool new marketing content pages for popular products, improved the user experience on our Pricing page, and made a few mobile experience updates.
Here are the major updates to Samtec.com for January 2021.
Bulk Add to Cart Tool
Our updates to the Cart on Samtec.com continue. Users can now copy and paste up to 25 part numbers and quantities from a spreadsheet using the “Add to Cart” tool at the top of the website.
Just open a spreadsheet with part numbers and quantities listed next to each other, then copy and paste both column contents directly into the first part number box. Then click Add to Cart. Your products and quantities will be added directly to the cart in a single step!
Give it a try on Samtec.com by using the Add to Cart button at the top of any page.
Layout Updates to My Samtec Pricing Page
On the Pricing lookup page, users will now notice the Packaging information has been moved up to the top where it’s easier to see. We’ve also added our Reserve badge here for all eligible products.
Samtec Reserve is a program that guarantees shipment of over 200,000 connectors and cables in 1-day. Read more about that here.
New Flyover® Content Page
Samtec Flyover® technology can help extend signal reach and density to achieve next-gen speeds by routing signals via ultra-low skew twinax cable versus through lossy PCB.
As bandwidth requirements rapidly increase, Flyover® systems break the constraints of traditional signaling substrate and hardware offerings, resulting in a cost-effective, high-performance and heat efficient answer to the challenges of 56 Gbps bandwidths and beyond.

New Optical Solutions Content Page
FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ takes the data connection “off board” for up to 28 Gbps per lane with a path to 112 Gbps PAM4 via optical cable – or copper for cost optimization – using the same surface mount connector system.
The system’s miniature footprint allows for increased density close to the data source, simplified PCB and reduced power dissipation. FireFly™ interconnects include PCIe®-Over-Fiber solutions and rugged options ideal for harsh environments.

New Testing Connectivity Content Page
5G Networking, HPC/AI and Automotive 2.0 are driving unprecedented industry growth, along with massive increases in bandwidth, frequency and density requirements. The complexities of the resulting system architectures have intensified demand for advanced production test systems for semiconductors, module hardware, connectors and cables.
Samtec offers a broad range of high-performance connectivity solutions ideal for many of these next-generation test platforms. In addition, because we internally develop high-level test hardware for our own products, we have a unique understanding of the challenges and demands of advanced test instrumentation connectivity.

Updated SI Lite Family Page
Samtec offers many board stacker solutions rated up to 8 Gbps and compatible with several popular industry standards, including PCIe® 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0, JTAG, LVDS, and others. These products provide cost-effective solutions to run high-speed signals in a variety of applications.
With the industry’s largest variety of board-to-board interconnects, and the most design flexibility to solve almost every design challenge, Samtec makes it easy to find the right board stacking solution.
