Cadillac vs. Ford. Fast food vs. fine dining. 24k gold vs. 25₵ plastic. The difference between all of these things: standards. Standards are what define the choices we make each and every day as to what we will invest our time and money in. But what do standards, in this case,...
Last week I posted a blog about a paper on Interconnect Susceptibility To Galvanic Corrosion. The paper was prepared David Scopelliti, a longtime friend of Samtec. As I mentioned there, Dave has a wealth of test, application, industry, and processing knowledge, and is well-resp...
At the end of every year, avid readers, editors, engineers, and fellow electronics nerds of EDN magazine vote on their top 100 products. From DACs to smart cameras, debug software to single-board computers, all aspects of the electronic world are fair game in EDN’s Hot 100. Avne...
Our longtime friend Dave Scopelliti has prepared a succinct paper where he shares his insights on the issue of Galvanic (Electrolytic) Corrosion and interconnects. Dave has a wealth of test, application, industry, and processing knowledge, and is well-respected and well-known in...
The web team at Samtec finished 2016 with several fairly significant updates. One major application, Solutionator, was given a new streamlined sampling feature that we know you’ll find extremely useful. We also rolled out the first version of the new way you’ll get your full part...
