System Optimization

Silicon-to-Silicon™ System Optimization capabilities assist designers in optimizing the high-speed serial path from bare die, to IC package and assembly, to PCB, to connectors and cable assemblies, and back again. These capabilities include:

  • Assisting IC layout designers to optimize power and signal integrity of the bare die during the IC design process
  • Developing complex, customized IC packaging and assembly solutions enabling maximum IC density, precision and ruggedness
  • Enabling PCB designers to create denser, faster PCBs by providing factory and field-based technical support to ensure signal chain optimization
  • Providing the products, tools, design expertise and consulting services to link high-speed signal chains between PCBs and through backplanes
  • Engineer industry standard and customized copper and optical cable assemblies at data rates up to 28Gbps and beyond
  • IC Packaging
  • Advanced package design and assembly capabilities along with the ability to assist in choosing the best technology and materials for an application, helping to save valuable design and engineering time.

Earlier this year we released our High-Speed Cable Interconnect Solutions Guide. To go along with that, we wanted to bring some of that experience into the website. We’ve just released the first version of our High-Speed Cable Solutions Experience. This unique experience is a bit...
Counterfeit parts and the issues posed by them are a growing concern throughout the electronic industry.  However, counterfeit products are nothing new when it comes to consumer goods, and for many years, in any large city, traveling merchants have sold everything from purses to ...
COBO, Silicon Photonics Kevin Burt, Application Engineer at the Samtec Optical Group, walks us through a demonstration using silicon photonics and the COBO (Consortium of Onboard Optics) form factor.  This was displayed at OFC 2018 in San Diego, California. Samtec is a fabless in...
Standardization. COTS. Interoperability. Configurable. These often-used terms describe on-going efforts to define flexible and open critical embedded computing architectures. One such example is VITA-backed VPX. The goal of VPX is to leverage the latest switch fabric technologies...
