High-Speed Backplane Systems

High-speed, high-density backplane systems include ExaMAX® and XCede® HD in a variety of pair and column counts. ExaMAX® enables to 56 Gbps performance and allows designers the option to optimize density or minimize board layer count. XCede® HD is a small form factor system with a modular design for significant space savings and flexibility.

In June, we spent the majority of our time beefing up several areas of My Samtec. We also made a few tweaks to the Tech Specs pages to provide even more technical data to help you make your product decisions. Here are the major updates to Samtec.com for June of 2018. Performance ...
Samtec recently completed an arduous flex and bend test on our Eye Speed® Ultra-Low Skew Twinax cable.  This is used in our high speed cable assemblies, including the Samtec Flyover™ FQSFP-DD cable assembly. Besides achieving outstanding electrical performance, the testing has pr...
“Did you eat a lot of paint chips when you were a kid?” Thanks to REACH and RoHS we can no longer use lead-based products as a fun punch line in a movie. If a product has heavy metals in it, then the EU doesn’t want it, and if the EU doesn’t want it then […] The post Get the Lead...
The number of embedded computing architectures, including VPX, seems to grow daily. Interoperability, economies-of-scale and multiple sources are benefits customer demand in any solution. VPX – and by extension OpenVPX – continues to grow in popularity.  These VITA-defined archit...
