October was a big month of software releases for Samtec.com, as several projects wrapped up and were pushed live to the website. This includes a new design for our Tech Specs pages, a brand new RF cable builder application, additional enhancements to user profiles, and several new content pages.
Here are the major web updates to Samtec.com for October 2021.
New Design for Series and Products Tech Specs Pages
Prior to this new design, we had been running the previous design of our Series and Part Number pages for about 5 years. Over those years we added many pieces of information and changed the layout as much as we could to fit those new additions.
This upgrade provides users with much more space, a much-improved user experience, and far more room for growth. Check out the new blog post we wrote detailing this upgrade here.
New RF Solutionator Cable Builder Application
We’ve also just released a brand new way to build and configure RF cables on our website, called the RF Solutionator. This application allows users to start with an end option, pairs it up with a valid cable option, and then allows the user to configure the rest of the cable using our configurator tool.
From there users can see technical data, and take actions on the part that was configured.
We’ll have more on this application in an upcoming blog post. Keep an eye out for that soon, and try it for yourself here.
Enhanced Registration Process and Profile Enhancements
We’ve recently added a few more enhancements to our new online profile system. We’ve given users more control over address management, adding ways to add several different types of addresses. This will be used in an upcoming checkout process rebuild in 2022.
We’ve also upgraded the profile registration process to be more simple and perform better, making registering for an account on Samtec.com as easy as ever.

New Automotive Applications Page and Updated Navigation
We recently released a new Automotive web experience where you can explore how Samtec can help with today and tomorrow’s automotive applications. From standard catalog products to customer-specific automotive designs, Samtec’s wide variety of interconnect solutions can meet the new technological demands for high-performance, high-reliability, and high mating cycles.
Take a look at the new automotive page and read more about this update in this recent blog post.
New Ultra-Rugged Content Page
Samtec’s ultra-rugged I/O and hardware solutions provide reliability and flexibility for extreme/harsh environments.
URSA™ I/O features a hyperboloid-type contact with four points of contact for an extremely reliable connection and high mating cycles. Rugged metal EMI shielding limits signal degradation and optimizes performance. With up to 40 positions per row on a micro 1.00 mm pitch, these rugged power I/O systems provide high-density in a small form factor for cable-to-cable and cable-to-board solutions.
