LAUNCH, DESIGN SERVICES

Optimized RF launch design is critical to high-frequency performance.


The interface between a high-frequency, air dielectric coaxial connector and a PCB is complex.

This makes board launch design increasingly important for optimum interconnect and system performance. Samtec's in-house RF and Signal Integrity engineers can assist with launch design optimization.

In our recent series of articles about connectors for the medical industry, we have looked at some of the equipment that is used in hospitals. While much of our focus has been on the devices that are used in surgery and the care of patients, there is a significant portion of the ...
This video, from the AI Hardware Summit, shows a prototypical Gen-Z PECFF demonstration based on PCIe 6.0, at 64 GT/s. It shows PCB connectors and twinax cable systems, with performance capabilities eminently suitable for AI hardware applications. It’s a Gen-Z backplane with Gen-...
It has been many years since Samtec set up a booth at the AUSA annual meeting. That may have to change just for the sheer fact of the customers and technology that was displayed. The Association of the United States Army (AUSA) is a nonprofit educational and professional developm...
Designers are well-aware that as data rate requirements approach and surpass 112 Gbps PAM4, they face challenges of balancing increasing throughput, scalability and density demands with concerns such as power consumption, signal integrity, cost and time-to-market, to name a few. ...
Prior to the design upgrade that I’m about to tell you about, we had been running the same layout on our series and part number pages for about 5 years. They had a good run and were responsible for millions of pageviews, downloads, samples, and more, but the Internet evolves quic...
