This video from DesignCon 2022 shows a proof-of-concept for an on-package, or near-package, direct-drive electrical channel that can support 100 G + signaling.  These drives could be used in mid-board optical and copper designs using Samtec Flyover® cable assemblies or mezzanine ...
My father served 25+ years as a Sergeant in the United States Air Force, and as a military kid I never really understood what his job entailed. Honestly, my only thought was “cool, my dad is traveling all over the world…”. Little did I know the intense and highly sensitive mechan...
The Internet of Things is bringing with it new requirements for safety and security.  Using the IoT, operators can benefit from complex and distributed installations. In addition, autonomous systems are becoming increasingly important in the functioning of modern industry. From m...
We spent most of April finishing up a couple of large applications that were built on legacy code. Those are now updated and live on the website. We also rolled out a couple of content page upgrades, and some back-end speed optimizations to various areas of the website. New Mater...
“Hello there!” Any Star Wars nerd worth their weight in spice from Kessel knows who said that. Rightfully, Disney+ released a new full-length Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer. If you haven’t watched it yet, you should! It would be a lie to say that I am not geeked about this trailer and th...
