TWINAX FLYOVER™ SYSTEMS FOR NEXT GEN SPEEDS

Samtec's flyover systems can help extend signal reach and density to achieve next gen speeds by routing signals via ultra-low skew twinax cable versus through lossy PCB.


OVERVIEW

-5 dB Loss Target, Reach Estimated. For OIF VSR applications.

THE PROBLEM: PCB REACH AT NEXT GEN SPEEDS

As bandwidth requirements rapidly increase routing signals through lossy PCBs, vias and other components has become one of the most complex challenges designers face.

THE SOLUTION: SAMTEC FLYOVER™ SYSTEMS

Samtec's "Flyover" design approach breaks the constraints of traditional signaling substrate and hardware offerings, resulting in a cost effective, high-performance answer to the challenges of 28 Gbps bandwidth and beyond.

FEATURES

Ultra Low Skew Cable Technology

Samtec's co-extruded 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.
