Bulls Eye® High-Performance Test
Optimized Performance to 70 GHZ • High-Density • Space-Saving Design

The high-density array designs and advanced cabling solutions within Samtec’s Bulls Eye® product family support test and measurement applications to 70 GHz. Soldering costs are eliminated with a compression interface to the board for easy on/off and high cycle counts. The high-density and space-saving design enables smaller evaluation boards and shorter trace lengths versus traditional SMAs.

The Bulls Eye® double row 70 GHz test system is 224 Gbps PAM8, 224 Gbps PAM6, 224 Gbps PAM4 and 112 Gbps NRZ compliant, and features a 360º grounding (stripline), spring-loaded contact. The 50 GHz system is designed with a signal and ground pogo-pin contact, plus 2.40 mm end connectors. Additional double and quad row systems are available with 2.92 mm end connectors.

(This is the second in a series of blogs, from Sandeep Sankararaman, Samtec’s Principal RF and Signal Integrity Engineer, discussing design strategies for high-bandwidth RF launches. The first is entitled “What Is An RF Connector Launch?” The third, coming next week, discusses GN...
If you’ve been paying attention to the Coming Soon section in our most recent web updates, you might have noticed we have been working on an upgraded Checkout system for the website for the last several months. We’re happy to announce that this application is now accepting orders...
As signal speeds increase, each part of the signal path getting to and from the device needs to work to higher frequencies.  Strategies that worked in the past no longer suffice and cheaper connectors no longer make the cut. Cable lengths and trace lengths need to get shorter to ...
This month, we released a major new version of our Checkout to a beta state, made some upgrades to how we show lead times online, made 3D model downloads easier from the Search, and released a few more content updates. Here are the major website updates to Samtec.com for July 202...
Something occurred to me recently. AI hardware system architectures are really applications-specific. Computing platforms from laptops, desktops, workstations and servers follow classical architectures. Inputs, outputs, a central processing unit, busses (control, data and memory)...
