Flyover® QSFP28 Cable Systems

Flyover® QSFP28 Cable Systems

Direct attach Flyover® QSFP28 cable assemblies route critical high-speed signals through ultra low skew twinax for improved and extended signal integrity.


Family Overview

fqsfp dd level2

Samtec’s Flyover® QSFP Systems provide improved signal integrity and architectural flexibility by routing critical high-speed signals through low-loss, ultra low skew twinax cable, instead of through expensive, lossy PCBs. The ultra-high-density design includes sideband signaling via press-fit contacts to help increase airflow, and a multitude of “End 2” options allow for maximum design flexibility.

In February, we continued to build out the content on the website, released a new hierarchy for RF products, and added ways to find Samtec “Reserve” products. Here are the major web updates to Samtec.com for February 2021. Edge Card Content Page Samtec offers a full line of edge ...
In grade school, we had timed math quizzes. With a sheet full of problems and the timer set, the goal was to answer as many as possible. The key to speed is TONS of practice and, honestly, memorization – knowing the problems so well that the answer comes to mind at first glance. ...
“Do you know how FAST you were going?!?” That question strikes fear in almost all teenage drivers. The resulting ticket dashes any hope of a fun weekend. Plus, what happens when the parents find out?? No!!! Meanwhile, embedded and optical engineers may wonder the same thing. “PCI...
