Embedded design trends typically revolve around three main ideas: faster data rates, smaller form factors and cost-effective solutions. Those design trends drive the theme for the 2020 Embedded Tech Trends forum: The Business and Technology Forum for Critical and Intelligent Embe...
Samtec loves DesignCon.  It’s an opportunity to present our new signal integrity optimized, high-performance interconnect and technology solutions, along with the highest level of support and expertise in the industry. To learn more about these products and solutions, stop by the...
As you probably know, discrete wire component data is quite a bit different than just standard socket and terminal mating relationships. When we look at how Samtec approaches discrete wire products, there are several components involved. We not only sell the assemblies, but we al...
While Samtec started as a connector company with a focus on two-piece, pin-and-socket board stacking systems, High-Speed Board Stacking connectors and High-Speed Cable Assemblies now make up a significant portion of our sales. To support development in this area, in December of 2...
In the manufacturing world there are standards for just about everything, and they all are typically there to ensure a product can perform as expected for the end application. Among these standards is IPC-A-610 covering solder joints for varying types of connector termination sty...
