In May, we rolled out a few new content pages, a new video search experience along with hundreds of new standalone video pages, and a brand new application to search through our flexible stacking products.
Here are the major web updates for this month.
New Video Search Experience
Samtec has hundreds of videos that span across everything from products, to demos, to presentations, branding, and more. We rebuilt our video search to be more lightweight, and also added a huge new feature.
Previous to this update, all of the videos opened in a modal pop-up window. With this new update, any time a user clicks on a video, it will open in a brand new page that is dedicated to that video.
This allows the user to see the description of the video, view the video in fullscreen, easily share the URL, and save the URL for later. This also makes it easier for search engines to find our videos and rank them within video search results, which is never a bad thing. 🙂
We will do a more in-depth writeup on some of the cool things we’re doing behind the scenes with this tool later this month. Until then, try out the new video search experience here – https://www.samtec.com/support/videos/
New Flexible Stacking Search Tool
This new software application is a tool within a tool. We first rolled out our newest version of Picture Search last year. One of our goals with that application was to make products easier to find visually. Now, to continue with that goal, we’ve just released a new graphical approach to sorting through our millions of options for vertical board stacking products.
This is the first iteration of our newest web tool, the Vertical Board Stacking Search. This tool allows users to click a few boxes and get back a list of mated sets that will work for exactly the parameters they enter. It even features a really simple (yet very powerful) slider tool that allows you to graphically choose a stack height range. This is a much better experience than typing numbers as in previous tools.
To find your product, you’ll simply select your board termination type, pitch, number of positions needed, and then slide the stack height until you’re happy with your result set.
We’ll create more links to this new tool soon, and will also be adding more product types and terminations to it in the near future.
Also, look for a more product-focused write-up on this tool later in the month. Until then, you can try the new Vertical Board Stack Search here – https://www.samtec.com/picturesearch/vertical-stacking-search
