HyperTransport®

OVERVIEW

The HyperTransport® Consortium is an internationally recognized standards body focused on producing open-standard protocols that enable computing-system designers to improve overall performance.

HyperTransport® is a state-of-the-art packet-based, high-bandwidth, scalable, low latency point-to-point interconnect technology that links processors to each other, processors to coprocessors, and processors to I/O and peripheral controllers.

Its highly efficient protocol makes it the ideal choice as a chip-to-chip, board-to-board and chassis-to-chassis high-performance interconnect, which is successfully deployed in the widest range of consumer, commercial and mission-critical applications, including gaming systems, embedded designs, networking equipment, personal computers, workstations, servers, and supercomputers.

HT3 Node Cable Assembly System (HDLSP Series)

The HT3 Node Cable and Connector meets the consortium's need for a next-generation high-speed high-density I/O system optimized for the demanding environment within equipment racks. Primarily, the design allows for the tightest side-to-side and over-under stacking, yielding the highest possible density in a box, and in a rack.

HT Mezzanine Connector (SEARAY™)

HyperTransport's Mezzanine Connector Specification calls for Samtec's SeaRay board-to-board connectors. Widely used in high-speed, high-density applications, they are ideal for internal HyperTransport mezzanines. The connectors are available in several heights, giving system designers a versatile platform form their mezzanine requirements.

Many of our Samtec blogs focus on high-speed, high-bandwidth, cutting-edge connector applications. This makes sense because Signal Integrity is a critical issue for many of our customers, and because it’s a more flashy, attention-grabbing, sexy topic. And yes, I did just use the ...
Many electronics experience a wide range of climates while in operation and storage. Because of this fact, connector humidity testing is used to determine the ability of a product to withstand elevated humidity and cycling temperatures. Humidity testing is conducted in combinatio...
In this new video, Samtec’s Kevin Burt introduces Samtec Direct Connect™. Direct Connect gives the benefit of exiting a higher number of lanes at low loss from the chip package, which can be very useful in both high performance computing and network switching applications, especi...
This is the first release of a few phases of a new login system for Samtec.com. This replaces a system that was built in 2011 and has been running well ever since. But, technology changes over time, and it was time for an upgrade. Here are some additional details about the featur...
Modern electronic devices are getting smaller with every new generation, and as a result, they are becoming more portable.  At the same time, the performance of these devices is growing as the demands of consumers become greater.  We expect to be able to connect to the internet w...
