RUGGED FEATURES

Options for high-reliability, high-retention and high-cycle life


Tiger Eye Contact System

Smooth, flat mating area increases mating cycles and lowers contact resistance
Heat-treated BeCu for the best combination of mechanical and electrical properties
Surface mount, micro slot tail increases solder surface area for higher joint strength


Edge Rate® Contact System

Smooth milled mating surface reduces wear and increases durability
Lower insertion and withdrawal forces
Robust when “zippered” during unmating


Ideal for high normal force, zippering and other rugged applications

jack screws

Manually activated latches increase unmating force by up to 200%

Positive Latching

Metal or plastic friction locks increase retention/ withdrawal force

Friction Locks

Increase unmating force by up to 50%

Retention Pins

Boards are mechanically locked together

Board Locks

Significantly increase sheer resistance of connector to PCB

Weld Tabs

Easy and secure mating

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...
