Flyover Architecture

Solutions for routing high-speed signals at increasing bandwidths, such as Samtec’s Flyover Architecture, require high level design and engineering support, including expertise in signal integrity optimization, routing and thermal management strategies, and materials selection. Samtec Teraspeed Consulting engineers have the experience and expertise to help address and support these challenges.

As bandwidth requirements rapidly increase, routing signals through lossy PCBs, vias and other components has become one of the most complex challenges designers face. Next generation solutions such as Samtec’s Flyover Architecture are made possible with the expertise of Samtec’s signal integrity engineers, who provide high level design assistance and engineering support for high-performance system challenges, including:

  • Improving signal integrity and reach at increasing data rates
  • Increasing system architecture flexibility
  • Reducing power consumption
  • Reducing PCB costs by enabling lower layer counts and less expensive materials
  • Improving thermal dissipation through power reduction and IC placement flexibility
  • Maximizing density
  • Simplifying board layouts
  • PCB routing / layout strategies

Signal Integrity Technology Training

We deliver signal integrity training based on years of real-life experience in the engineering and implementation of high-performance systems.

We offer classes tailored for beginners to advanced users. Standard programs are one to three days, and custom classes may be arranged from one day to one week in duration. Practical examples based upon actual experience are used to provide intuitive learning for both simple and advanced theoretical concepts. Participants leave our presentations with answers & new insights.
