In January of 2019, we wrapped up a few smaller projects that we have been working on to increase the presence of videos across Samtec.com.
We also released a couple of updates to our Industy Standards section of the website, as well as our product configurator.
Here are the major updates to Samtec.com from January 2019.
Standalone Videos Page
We recently released a brand new standalone videos page that you can use to browse, search, and filter through all of the videos that are featured throughout Samtec.com.
You can search by keyword, and/or use the filters we have provided to pair down your list even further.
Check it out here and watch some of our videos while you’re at it!
Addition of Videos Heading to Product Family Pages
In addition to adding the videos page mentioned above, we have also added a new “Videos” heading to all of our product family pages. We’re still in the process of populating the data to show the relevant videos for each product, but you can still see this in action on a few pages.
We’ll have the videos populated in a few weeks, creating a far more rich content experience on our family pages.
Updated Experience for Industry Standards
We have been working dilligently for the past several months to update the Industry Standards section of our website. We’re nearly finished updating all of the pages, and to celebrate, we gave the main Industry Standards page a face lift.
Each standard now has a description, logo, and an easy link to learn more. Additionally, at the bottom, you see more organizations that we are a part of, but may not have content featured on our website.
Check out the new Industry Standards Page here.
New Hypertransport Page
The HyperTransport® Consortium is an internationally recognized standards body focused on producing open-standard protocols that enable computing-system designers to improve overall performance.
HyperTransport® is a state-of-the-art packet-based, high-bandwidth, scalable, low latency point-to-point interconnect technology that links processors to each other, processors to coprocessors, and processors to I/O and peripheral controllers.
This month, we updated the Hypertransport / HT3 page with a new look and content.
Check out the new Hypertransport page here.
Fully Configure a Product (and get a 3D Model) on Mobile Devices
We have enabled the option to fully configure a Samtec product using any smartphone device with an internet connection. From there, you can sample, and even buy online, right from your smartphone.
To do this, just navigate down to the product page like you normally would, open the “Configure a Part” panel, and use the dropdowns to choose your options.
From there, scroll down and you’ll see options to sample, buy, and even download your 3D model.
Try it out here. Make sure you’re on a mobile device!
