The insatiable bandwidth demand for next gen data rates is driven by applications like the cloud, artificial intelligence, machine learning, supercomputing, and 5G. In this video from OFC 2023, Matt Burns walks us through a live product demonstration of a Samtec Flyover® Cable System showing excellent performance at 112 Gbps PAM4. The signal source is a Cadence 112 G ELR SerDes PHY, and the signal is run through a Samtec Flyover cable assembly that’s up to the task. The Cadence … [Read more...]
Xilinx Kria™ Adaptive SoMs Feature Samtec AcceleRate® HD Slim Body Arrays
Rapidly-growing AI system capabilities are driving new product architectures that demand increased speeds, bandwidths, frequencies and densities. Scalability and configurability are a must. In embedded applications, many AI systems leverage the ease of design and economies of scale of systems-on-modules (SoMs). System-on-modules are an example of make or buy system design. A SoM includes the system compute engine (MCU, FPGA, GPU, etc.) as well as general support circuitry like DRAM, power and … [Read more...]
The Industry’s Slimmest Cable Assembly: Do You Believe?
I want to believe. Not only could Eugene Victor Tooms hibernate for 30-year stints, but he could squeeze and elongate his body to pass through narrow openings. In the supernatural thriller The X-Files, Tooms managed to fit through elevator shafts, air vents, chimneys, and almost a toilet before his demise by an escalator while being investigated by Mulder and Scully. It would seem that only genetic mutants are capable of such incredible feats, but we just released the incredibly slim … [Read more...]
