Chances are likely that you have heard of the Internet of Things (IoT) by now. On that same chance, you have probably heard it so many times that it is starting to become like any other buzzword.
I say that in jest however, but just wait until IoT hits the late night infomercial buzzword list alongside the tactical cane with the LED handle that is connected via 5G with your HD vision sunglasses.
Where is Samtec in IoT?
All jokes aside, IoT and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have and will change the way that we gather information, actively monitor processes, and problem solve malfunctions from remote locations.
Over the last couple of years, Samtec’s products have been used in varying products concerning IoT/IIoT.
As machines are given the ability to detect abnormalities through camera systems, or embedded vision systems, the data requirements will vastly increase, and so will the need for faster components.
Samtec’s FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ is well suited for embedded vision applications. With copper and optical options, designers have a choice to upgrade from copper to a 28 Gbps optical solution down the road.
Razor Beam™ LP is an ultra micro solution for applications up to 28 Gbps NRZ. With stack hights down to just 2 mm, it is a perfect solution for connecting the image sensor through the camera.

Soon enough, cars will communicate with each other and street lights all the while constantly scanning for potential threats using V2X technology over a 5G network.
Similar to embedded vision,
Samtec’s FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ fits well into 5G applications because of the miniature footprint, and its ability to take data “off-board.”
Samtec’s high-performance RF Test and Precision RF Cable Systems are a great solution for companies in 5G networking with a need to run simulation and test & measurement.
