The North American Broadcast Show, or NAB, is April 22-27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. NAB is about everything digital in the fields of media, entertainment, and technology.
Samtec is exhibiting its line of 12G SDI RF interconnects, including a product demonstration showing live return loss testing of different 12G SDI products, as well as displays of other high-speed interconnects used in the broadcast video industry. If you’re in Vegas, we’d love to see you at booth #N3835.
12G SDI RF Connectors
Samtec offers the largest variety of high-performance interconnect solutions for 12G-SDI applications, including right-angle orientations to support high-performance broadcast video system integration. Focus products include BNC Right Angle, BNC Edge Mount, and HDBNC Right Angle.
Live Product Demonstration
This product demonstration will showcase live Return Loss testing of different connectors series per the SMPTE ST-2082-1 12G SDI single channel 4K /UHD requirements. The demonstration highlights the custom launch design services that successfully allow even the more challenging Right Angle connector configurations to perform at this high level. These services are available to optimize the performance of any of our BNC, HDBNC, DIN or other 75 ohm series of PCB terminated connectors for your particular PCB stack up regardless of materials and thickness.
High Speed Interconnects For The Broadcast Video Industry
SEARAY™ Open Pin Field Arrays feature a .050″ x .050″ (1,27 mm x 1,27 mm) pitch grid for maximum grounding and routing flexibility. This system is available in stack heights from 7 mm to 40 mm with up to 500 Edge Rate® contacts.
The FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ is the first interconnect system that gives a designer the flexibility of using micro footprint optical and copper interconnects interchangeably with the same connector system. FireFly enables chip-to-chip, board-to-board, on-board and system-to-system connectivity at data rates up to 28 Gbps. FireFly is based on a high performance interconnect system which allows the use of ultra-low-skew twinax cables or high performance active optical engines.
Samtec’s Flyover™ QSFP Systems provide improved signal integrity and architectural flexibility by flying critical high-speed signals over lossy PCB materials and directly to the panel via ultra low skew twinax cable. The ultra-high-density design includes sideband signaling via press-fit contacts to help increase airflow, and a variety of “End 2” options allow for maximum design flexibility
ExaMAX® High-Speed Backplane connectors enable 28 Gbps electrical performance on 2.00 mm column pitch, and they meet and exceed OIF CEI-28G-LR specification for 28 Gbps standards. In development are direct mate orthogonal, backplane cables, and coplanar headers.
Samtec has a complete line of High-Speed Mezzanine Interconnects, including systems with integral ground planes, rugged and high-speed contact systems, high-density arrays, and ultra-micro pitch products.
