Decisions, Decisions … I may be in the market for a new car in the near future. Unless you’ve got a strong preference (and most car buyers DO have a strong preference, IMO), choosing a vehicle is a series of trade-offs.  Fuel efficiency vs. horsepower. Functionality vs. appearanc...
I recently attended the Engineering Design Show in the UK, where one of the clear trends in evidence was the rise of power connectors for printed circuit boards (PCBs).  The reasons are pretty clear. New technology is making ever-greater demands for more power in smaller spaces. ...
In October, we shifted our focus to working on a few small and medium-sized projects that had been on the back-burner, and also chipped away at some technical debt that had been piling up, which is nerd speak for “picking up our toys.” This type of work isn’t always glamorous, bu...
“112 Gbps PAM4 data rates will save the world!” A reader of the Samtec blog may think that. Why? The demand for data never ceases. A recent report says that US teenagers spend seven hours a day in front of screens. But how real are 112 Gbps PAM4 data rates? Test silicon is availa...
