56 Gbps PAM4 SI Evaluation Kit Demonstration

This active product demonstration shows Samtec's AcceleRate® HP and Bulls Eye® connector systems running at 56 Gbps, from a Credo Bald Eagle silicon.

56 Gbps PAM4 HSEC8-DP SI Evaluation Kit Demonstration

This live product demonstration shows a Samtec high-speed edge card connector (HSEC8-DP) running at 56 Gbps PAM4, with incredible performance. It's powered by a Xilinx® Virtex® UltraScale+ VCU129 FPGA Evaluation Kit.

UCLA, Samtec - Ocean Processor For CMS, CERN with FireFly™

Maxx Tepper of UCLA gives us a brief overview of the Ocean High-Throughput processor to be used in the real-time event selection system of the CMS experiment at the CERN large hadron collider. The Ocean board incorporates Samtec FireFly™ optical cable assemblies. Maxx explains how they are used and their performance.

A Cable Backplane Solution For 112 Gbps PAM4 Architecture

From DesignCon 2020, Scott McMorrow walks us through a live demo of 112 Gbps PAM4 Samtec Flyover® cable products running with the latest Xilinx® advanced processor, targeted for 7 nm, 112 Gbps SerDes FPGA applications.

Direct Connect To The Silicon Package

5G, high performance computing, emulation, AI and machine learning technology segments all benefit from bleeding edge speed and reach, especially at 56 and 112G PAM4. This video explains how Samtec Direct Connect™ technology enables 56 Gbps PAM4 and 112 Gbps PAM4 systems.

70 GHz High-Performance Test Solutions

This live product demonstration, from DesignCon 2020, shows how Bulls Eye® can be used effectively in a real-life evaluation board environment.

Immersion Cooling Of Optical Transceivers - SC19

In this video from SuperComputing 2019, Arlon Martin and the Samtec Optical Group are demonstrating the latest developments in full-scale immersion cooling. Using Samtec Flyover® technology and FireFly™ optical modules, Arlon explains the tradeoffs between air, conduction and liquid cooling.

PCB Connectors And Twinax Cable Systems for AI Hardware

This demonstration shows that Samtec Flyover® technology and high-speed interconnect systems can effectively operate in 32 GT/s silicon test platforms that incorporate up to eight riser cards with PCIe® 5.0 AI usage models.

Chassis-to-Chassis, Mid-Board Connectivity

This chassis-to-chassis demonstration shows mid-board connectivity via a five meter cabled backplane architecture. It emulates next generation data center architectures for typical 19 inch rack mount applications. From Super Computing 2019.

112 Gbps PAM4 Front Panel to Mid-Board - Samtec Flyover®

This demo, from DesignCon 2020, is a collaboration between Samtec and Alphawave. It emulates next generation data center equipment architectures, and incorporates Samtec Flyover® to improve signal integrity and architectural flexibility.

This video from DesignCon 2022 shows a proof-of-concept for an on-package, or near-package, direct-drive electrical channel that can support 100 G + signaling.  These drives could be used in mid-board optical and copper designs using Samtec Flyover® cable assemblies or mezzanine ...
My father served 25+ years as a Sergeant in the United States Air Force, and as a military kid I never really understood what his job entailed. Honestly, my only thought was “cool, my dad is traveling all over the world…”. Little did I know the intense and highly sensitive mechan...
The Internet of Things is bringing with it new requirements for safety and security.  Using the IoT, operators can benefit from complex and distributed installations. In addition, autonomous systems are becoming increasingly important in the functioning of modern industry. From m...
We spent most of April finishing up a couple of large applications that were built on legacy code. Those are now updated and live on the website. We also rolled out a couple of content page upgrades, and some back-end speed optimizations to various areas of the website. New Mater...
“Hello there!” Any Star Wars nerd worth their weight in spice from Kessel knows who said that. Rightfully, Disney+ released a new full-length Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer. If you haven’t watched it yet, you should! It would be a lie to say that I am not geeked about this trailer and th...
