OFC 2022 is back and in-person (and online). Primarily for data center and telecom professionals, it’s a showcase of solutions in network equipment and software, active and passive components, test and manufacturing equipment, data center/IT products, cable and fibre.
This year OFC boasts over 100 technical sessions, 120 invited speakers, and 500+ technical peer-reviewed presentations.
And the epicenter of OFC 2022 is booth 2309, the Samtec booth. If you only have time for one stop at OFC, it should be booth 2309. There’s new products, new technologies, and live product demonstrations, all manned by a group of experts who are looking forward to talking to you about your application.

Samtec NovaRay® Front Panel I/O Outperforms QSFP-DD: NovaRay I/O is the highest-performance, highest-density, smallest form factor front-panel I/O interconnect system in the industry. With the same channel budget of QSFP-DD, Samtec NovaRay I/O provides twice the cable length and twice the density.
PCIe® 6.0 PECFF Emulation Platform: A prototypical Gen-Z PECFF demonstration based on PCIe 6.0, at 64 GT/s. The demo incorporates PCB connectors and twinax cable systems, with performance capabilities suitable for AI hardware applications. A Gen-Z backplane with Gen-Z Add-In-Cards (AIC) with top card connectivity; emulates industry standard AI Acceleration hardware platforms.
High-Performance Samtec Connectors in Immersion Cooling: We compare the signal integrity performance of two identical, high-performance product demonstration boards. One is immersed in Engineered Fluids’ ElectroCool® EC-130®. The performance of both systems is identical, with very low pre-FEC BER.
Cable Management System Improves SI, Thermals: System architects are now using an alternate approach which allows designers to extend signal reach and density to achieve next gen speeds by routing signals through low-loss, ultra-low skew twinax cable, instead of through expensive, lossy PCBs. Samtec’s Signal Integrity Group can provide guidance and insight on methodical ways to manage these high-speed cables, and to use our expertise and experience to help designers find the right cable system for their design. We understand the challenges designers face, such as signal integrity, low speed/power management, available space, thermals, installation and assembly, and the overall need to incorporate systems into their existing designs and architecture.
PCIe® 4.0 Over Fiber With Hot Add: Samtec’s PCIe®-Over-Fiber FireFly™ Adapter Card (PCOA Series) was developed by our partner Dolphin Interconnect Solutions. The PCOA series utilizes Samtec’s PCI Express-Over-Fiber FireFly Optical Cable Assemblies (PCUO series). Samtec is the only company in the world offering reset functionality and cable present sidebands in this form factor. One of the new features of the adapter card is the capability to do a surprise hot add. A surprise hot add feature allows a new resource to be added to a system that is already running. The resource can be a storage device, camera, or a GPU or an FPGA.
Rugged Optical Transceivers: Samtec optical modules (ETMO) are based on the popular FireFly™ optical engine, and can be coated with Samtec’s proprietary Mil-Coat™ process. The resulting optical engine meets MIL-STD-810, Method 509.7, which is one of the most severe specifications for salt fog environments. Samtec also offers the CSP optical engine for military and space applications. These offer the same optical connectivity and are intended for space and high radiation applications. These engines are BGA solderable and rad hardened for these demanding applications.
We hope to see you at OFC 2022.
