The FPGA (or ACAP) universe gathered at the San Jose Fairmount last week during the Xilinx Developer Forum. Engineers, data scientists, analysts, distributors, alliance partners and more came to learn about the latest hardware, software and system level solutions from Xilinx. Xil...
Samtec recently held its first annual Samtec Cares Day, where we welcomed dozens of local non-profits to our headquarters in New Albany, Indiana. The Samtec Cares Grant Program was created to positively impact and assist organizations within the communities in which Samtec associ...
Increasing data demand requires faster data rates across the data center. This is especially true of the transceivers and pluggable cages and modules common to these applications. One company can’t do it alone. MSAs continue to proliferate as component manufacturers, equipment pr...
In the first part of this series on Severe Environment Testing (SET) we covered Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) and Dielectric Withstanding Voltage (DWV) at an altitude of 70,000 ft. Continuing on the path of “how” we tested, we will be looking at the other tests that were introduc...
In September, we put a bow on the login project until Phase 2 begins later this year, continued to focus on some back-end upgrades to Samtec.com, released a few UX updates, knocked out a few smaller projects that have been on the back burner, and added a few new pieces of content...
