In November, we rolled out several exciting updates to the website, including a brand-new catalog, a few new content pages for newer products, an update to Samtec Reserve, and the addition of more data-driven pages in a new Samtec.com content management system.
Download the New Samtec Catalog
It’s almost like Christmas came early with this update. We have released the 2024 Samtec Catalog for print and download. You can read more about the new catalog in this recent blog post.
New Vertical Compression Mount SI Evaluation Kit Page
Vertical compression mount RF connectors feature pre-compressed spring contacts pressed onto gold plated PCB contact pads via precision mounting hardware. Key advantages include improved signal integrity, flexibility and reliability.
The Vertical Compression Mount SI Evaluation Kit (REF-228591-XX) provides RF engineers an easy-to-use solution for testing various vertical compression mount RF connectors offered by Samtec. The kit routes stripline traces between pairs of various Precision RF Compression Mount options (1.35mm/1.85 mm/2.40 mm/2.92 mm).

AcceleRate® Mini Flyover® SI Evaluation Kit Page
As data rates increase, trace length on PCBs decreases. Samtec’s high-speed Flyover® cable assemblies simplify PCB design and limit signal degradation in high data rate applications. The AcceleRate® Mini Flyover® SI Evaluation Kit provides system designers and SI engineers an easy-to-use solution for testing the AcceleRate® Mini Extreme Performance Cable System.

Material Declaration Application Update
We’ve recently rolled out a new data source for our online material declaration generation tool. This update adds over 10,000 new parts (and counting) to be covered by this tool 24/7. If you need a part composition analysis for a Samtec product, enter the product in this application to see if it is eligible first.
Updated Samtec Reserve® Literature
The Samtec Reserve® designation allows customers to quickly and easily identify the availability of over 200,000 of Samtec’s most popular connectors and cables – guaranteed to ship in 1-day.
Look for the Reserve badge throughout Samtec.com to quickly determine if your part number is eligible, along with current availability, quantity breaks, and pricing.

New Technology for Data-Driven Pages
As we continue to evolve towards the next generation of Samtec.com, we are rolling out several pages that were previously static code, that are now driven by our new back-end content management system. The updates on the front end of the website are minimal, however, the speed at which these pages can be updated is now much faster, enabling us to get updates out to you more quickly than ever before.
We’ve rolled this out in a few areas, and there will be thousands of more pages, and eventually the entire website in 2024 and beyond. Here are a few examples of pages that already use this new back-end system.
Coming Soon to Samtec.com
