Shielded Connectors For EMI, EMC Protection Samtec is expanding its line of rugged, high-speed 0.80 mm pitch Edge Rate® interconnects. First is a mating set with both socket (ERF8 Series) and terminal (ERM8 Series) strips that are fully shielded. The shield encircles the entire m...
Consumers just want more HD video everywhere they go. The migration from 4G to 5G enables live streaming video consumption everywhere the wireless network reaches. Faster bandwidths via cable or fiber to the home provide the pipe to support the 4K/UHDTV products that are common o...
Kevin Burt, of the Samtec Optical Group, explains another one of the several demos that Samtec presented at OFC 2017. In this demo, four GT 28 Gbps transceiver signals are generated by an FPGA and launched mid-board from a FireFly™ 28 G x4 optical connector system. These 28 Gbps...
Our friend Eric Bogatin wrote a paper for DesignCon 2017 entitled “New Characterization Technique for Glass-Weave Skew.” He wrote a summary article of the paper in Signal Integrity Journal. Since many of our readers strive to optimize their signal transmission path, I thought it...
