Cable

SI Evaluation Kits: Cable

As data rates increase, trace length on PCBs decrease. Samtec’s high-speed cable assemblies simplify PCB design and limit signal degradation in high data rate applications. Samtec Cable Assembly SI Evaluation Kits provide system designers and SI engineers easy-to-use platforms for testing many of Samtec’s popular cable assembly product series.

Each kit includes the evaluation platform, calibration board(s), technical documentation and test reports. Additionally, each kit is tested and verified by Samtec’s signal integrity experts before customer delivery.

Optics / FPGA
Kits

Optics / FPGA Kits

FPGA developers and system-level architects prototyping with industry-standard FPGA evaluation and development kits often leverage the FMC and FMC+ interfaces for I/O expansion and system level testing. On-board optical modules continue to gain acceptance in embedded, medical and mil/aero applications.

Samtec offers a wide portfolio of FMC, FMC+ and optical module evaluation kits for real-time development and testing in a lab setting.

Component Kits

Tinkerers, hobbyists, students and enthusiasts form the backbone of the tech-influenced DIY community known as the Maker Movement. Makers use various open-source electronic platforms as they develop interactive products ranging from robotics and drones to arts, crafts and musical instruments. Rapid prototyping of innovative projects using open-source electronic platforms typically requires basic connectors and cable assemblies.

Samtec has developed expansion connector accessory kits for three of the most popular platforms:

  • Arduino Uno R3 Expansion Connector Accessory Kit
  • Arm® Mbed™ Application Board Expansion Connector Accessory Kit
  • Raspberry Pi Expansion Connector Accessory Kit

There are many historical innovations that are the product of adversity, and the current situation is an extreme example.  While it is not the first time that humanity has faced a truly global challenge like the COVID-19 pandemic, this time the world is connected by technology in...
Telecommuting. Mobile work. Remote work. Flexible work. Work from home (WFH). They all mean the same thing. What do all of these have to do with Chalk Talks? Who would have guessed so many would WFH? The global COVID-19 outbreak is the reason. So, staying connected is a must. The...
Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) products are making their way into industries that wouldn’t have considered them previously. This is mainly due to the flexibility, speed of delivery, and cost savings that COTS products offer when compared to a full MIL-SPEC product. However, this...
Solar Power While the cost and benefits of solar power can and have been debated, there’s one point that cannot be debated:  the solar energy sector continues to grow.   The solar energy sector has grown 68% over the last decade, and the cost of solar infrastructure and installat...
