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