FireFly™ Positive Latching Receptacle

This FireFly™ positive latching receptacle is one part of a two-piece connector system with a tiny footprint on the board and interchageable for both copper and optical flyover cable assemblies. The receptacle is designed to secure the flyover cable assembly to the board with weld tabs that significantly increase the sheer resistance of the connector to the PCB. It not only provides rugged mechanical support but also optional power and low speed communications.

Data, data, data is everywhere. From streaming video to edge computing, system designers are challenged to meet the needs of the networks (and consumers). From servers and switches to networking equipment, OEMs developing next-gen devices with high performance communications face...
I want to believe. Not only could Eugene Victor Tooms hibernate for 30-year stints, but he could squeeze and elongate his body to pass through narrow openings. In the supernatural thriller The X-Files, Tooms managed to fit through elevator shafts, air vents, chimneys, and almost ...
One topic that garnered much interest at the Samtec booth at the International Microwave Symposium was a dynamic stress test of Samtec’s microwave cable. This demonstration proves that our low-loss, microwave cable withstands high flex cycles and still maintains signal integrity....
