28 Gbps FireFly Evaluation Kit

28 Gbps FireFly Evaluation Kit

Test platform for real-time evaluation of copper or optical FireFly Micro Flyover System at 28 Gbps


Overview

As data rates increase, trace length on PCBs decrease. Samtec’s Flyover® Technology simplifies PCB design and limits signal degradation in high data rate applications. Samtec’s FireFly Micro Flyover System offers the flexibility of using optical and copper interconnects interchangeably with the same connector system.

The 28 Gbps FireFly Evaluation Kit provides system designers, optical and SI engineers an easy-to-use solution for testing the FireFly Micro Flyover System. Rated up to 28 Gbps per lane in x4 and x12 configurations, this kit allows the designer real-time evaluation of an actively running copper or optical FireFly system in their lab.

The 28 Gbps FireFly Evaluation Kit delivers a high-quality system with robust optical, electrical and mechanical design. Please contact Samtec’s technical experts at FireFly@samtec.com for additional information.
