Our friends at EETech are sponsoring Industry Tech Days. Although they didn’t ask for my advice, I suggested they use the tagline of “Three Days of Peace and Music” for the event. They rejected that brilliant (and original) suggestion and went with “the largest ever virtual trade show and conference for electrical engineers worldwide.”
Next, I proactively suggested “Have It Your Way” as a slogan to describe the variety of content available. Not knowing a good idea when they hear it, they decided to describe it as “For five days, Industry Tech Days will transform the community-driven website All About Circuits into a digital expo floor. The event will provide attendees the opportunity to step into the traditional trade show environment from the comfort of their own home.”
Further rubbing it in my face, they went on to say that “Industry-leading companies will have digital “booth” landing pages on which to showcase their informational content. These booths will provide live interactions through which community members have the opportunity to learn about new products and pose questions in real-time to engineers at their preferred suppliers.”
It’s held August 31 through September 4. The URL is allaboutcircuits.com.
Tech Days is worth checking-out. Swing by the Samtec booth and learn about a variety of new products, applications and technologies.
New products include:
- 1.00 mm pitch discrete wire cable systems
- QSFP-DD Samtec Flyover® systems
- Ultra-micro power connectors
- NovaRay™ 112 Gbps PAM4 Arrays
Tech and white papers include “A Connector Solution To Achieve 112 Gbps PAM4 Data Rates” (here’s a link to an abbreviated video version of the paper), and “Severe Environment Testing For Connectors.” SET was developed to give designers the confidence needed to design COTS interconnect products in applications including military/aerospace, automotive, transportation, industrial, and medical.
Samtec is also sponsoring a free on-demand webinar entitled “Micro Interconnects For Rugged Applications.” Several design elements contribute to a connector being called “rugged,” including the contact design, plating, and insulator design. This webinar discusses those attributes and others.
We hope to see you there.
