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....
The PCI-SIG Developers Conference is a free event for the 800+ member companies that develop and bring to market new products utilizing PCI Express® technology. Granted most people reading this blog won’t be at the conference, but you might be interested in learning more about Sa...
In the first article of this series, we looked at how contacts are formed. This time, we’ll investigate the next step in the manufacturing process – plating. Have you ever looked closely at an electrical contact?  Contacts may be small and hard to see, but they are the most impor...
