12G-SDI Broadcast Video

Video has transformed from being an analog 6 MHz bandwidth signal to a 12 Gbps digital data stream. As signaling transitioned to 12 Gbps 4K UHD-SDI standards, the demand for meeting stringent return loss requirements up to 12 GHz emerged.

Samtec has the largest variety of 12G-SDI products available, including right-angle and low-profile options.

Samtec is expanding its line of ExaMAX® high speed backplane connectors. The new system is a direct mate orthogonal (DMO) configuration. These products were recently on display at SC17 in Denver. In the video above, Jonathan Sprigler, Samtec’s Backplane Product Manager, tells us ...
This time of year is typically set aside for preparation, and this year is no different. We spent November working on a couple of major upgrades to prepare for releases in 2018, one with the way we handle quotes in My Samtec, and the other with how we handle the checkout experien...
There are few words in an electrical engineer’s life that make them cringe more than EMI (Electromagnetic Interference).  From noise on the lines to crippling entire infrastructures, whether large or small, EMI presents a serious problem. As all active electrical systems emit ele...
As with any product development, ASIC designers aim to quicken time to market and reduce unnecessary design cycles. Designing full-custom ASICs comes with many benefits but leveraging the flexibility, configurability and high-performance of FPGAs has become a preferred method for...
