NovaRay™ 112 Gbps PAM4, Extreme Density Arrays

NovaRay™ combines extreme density and performance for 112 Gbps PAM4 per channel in 40% less space than traditional arrays.


NovaRay™ 112 Gbps PAM4, Extreme Density Arrays

The innovative design of NovaRay™ combines extreme density and extreme performance, which is critical as system sizes decrease and speeds increase. The fully shielded differential pair design and two reliable points of contact contribute to the industry leading 4.0 Tbps aggregate data rate.

FEATURES

Extreme Performance/Density

  • 112 Gbps PAM4 per channel
  • 4.0 Tbps aggregate data rate - 9 IEEE 400G channels
  • Innovative, fully shielded differential pair design enables:
    • Extremely low crosstalk (to 40 GHz)
    • Tight impedance control
    • Minimal variance in data rate as stack height increases
  • 112 differential pairs per square inch
  • Utilizes 40% less space than traditional arrays with the same data throughput
  • BGA attach to board for greater density and optimized trace breakout region

Multiple Points of Contact

  • Guaranteed two points of contact ensure a more reliable connection
  • Stub-free mating
  • Signals lost at the first point are caught in the second
  • Contributes to the 112 Gbps PAM4 rating
  • 92 Ω solution addresses both 85 Ω and 100 Ω applications

In December, we wrapped up a number of new features to Samtec.com to round out the 2018 year, including a new way to find Samtec sales locations and distributors, a new homepage panel for our Micro Rugged products, continued mobile optimizations, and a few updates to our Industry...
112 Gbps Samtec Flyover™ Demo Samtec’s Ralph Page walks us through a live demonstration of a Samtec Flyover™ system which enables 112 Gbps PAM4 performance. The Credo CDR generates two ports of 31-bit PRBS data at 112 Gbps PAM4 data rates. The signal travels from the Credo Pelica...
Since Samtec began in 1976, free connector samples have been a cornerstone of our business model. That said, we’re always looking for ways to continue to improve how we get samples into your hands. Recently we rolled out a simplified way to place sample requests on the website, w...
It was hot, really hot. In fact, things were getting so bad the walls around us were starting to melt, and just like that it was over; we failed current carrying capacity. That is Current Carrying Capacity (CCC) in a nutshell, well it would be if the parts were failing. Samtec pe...
In this video from SC18, Jignesh Shah of Samtec’s High Speed Connectivity Group walks us through a demonstration of a rearchitected Open Compute Project (OCP) wedge switch. By rearchitected we mean it utilizes Samtec Flyover™ high-speed cable assemblies to achieve next gen speeds...
