Flyover® Cable Technology
High-Density • Design Flexibility • High Reliability

Samtec Flyover® cable technology 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.

Flyover Technology Logo

As bandwidth requirements rapidly increase, Flyover® systems break 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.
