As bandwidth requirements rapidly increase, effectively managing heat and routing signals through lossy PCBs, vias and other components have become complex challenges.
Samtec Flyover® design breaks the constraints of traditional signaling substrate and hardware offerings, resulting in a cost–effective, high-performance and heat efficient answer to the challenges of 56 Gbps bandwidths and beyond.
Samtec's proprietary co-extruded Eye Speed® twinax cable technology eliminates the performance limitations and inconsistencies of individually extruded dielectric twinax cabling; improving signal integrity, bandwidth and reach for high-performance system architectures.
Ultra low skew twinax cable underwent Dynamic Insertion and Return Loss testing, proving the cable to be rugged with stable electrical performance after 250 flex/bend cycles. Click here to learn more or contact HDR@samtec.com for higher cycle results.
Samtec works with system architects in the early stages of design to create solutions for cable management optimized for signal integrity and even distribution of thermal load. Contact HDR@samtec.com for more information.
Using ultra-low skew twinax cable to route signals over the board is a key performance enabler as signal reach and integrity needs continue to become ever more important in high-speed applications. Samtec works with system architects in the early stages of design to create solutions for cable management with even distribution of thermal load.
Samtec Flyover® design provides end option flexibility to create a high-speed application specific solution to meet next gen speeds.
Samtec's state-of-the-art High–Speed Cable Plant is focused on R&D and manufacturing of precision extruded micro coax and twinax cable. Being vertically integrated allows Samtec to offer full system solutions, which creates the ideal combination of design flexibility and customer service to develop truly differentiated products.
