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

Many of our Samtec blogs focus on high-speed, high-bandwidth, cutting-edge connector applications. This makes sense because Signal Integrity is a critical issue for many of our customers, and because it’s a more flashy, attention-grabbing, sexy topic. And yes, I did just use the ...
Many electronics experience a wide range of climates while in operation and storage. Because of this fact, connector humidity testing is used to determine the ability of a product to withstand elevated humidity and cycling temperatures. Humidity testing is conducted in combinatio...
In this new video, Samtec’s Kevin Burt introduces Samtec Direct Connect™. Direct Connect gives the benefit of exiting a higher number of lanes at low loss from the chip package, which can be very useful in both high performance computing and network switching applications, especi...
This is the first release of a few phases of a new login system for Samtec.com. This replaces a system that was built in 2011 and has been running well ever since. But, technology changes over time, and it was time for an upgrade. Here are some additional details about the featur...
Modern electronic devices are getting smaller with every new generation, and as a result, they are becoming more portable.  At the same time, the performance of these devices is growing as the demands of consumers become greater.  We expect to be able to connect to the internet w...
