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.

Connectors

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.

HyperTransport® HTX Slot Connector (PCIE slots)

Using legacy PCIE Card slots is another strategy for employing HyperTransport®.

In this video from DesignCon 2019, Scott McMorrow walks us through a live demonstration showing how NovaRay® Cable assemblies offer extreme density while enabling 112 Gbps PAM4 performance. In combination with an ExaMAX® Backplane Cable assembly, the traditional backplane archite...
Micro and rugged typically do not go hand-in-hand, but Samtec offers a breadth of products and features that prove it is possible. To show that, we recently released a new Micro Rugged web experience. Here you can scroll, roll over and interact with the product solutions and rugg...
In January of 2019, we wrapped up a few smaller projects that we have been working on to increase the presence of videos across Samtec.com. We also released a couple of updates to our Industy Standards section of the website, as well as our product configurator. Here are the majo...
Using a connector set that hasn’t been tested for mechanical shock and vibration is like getting a tattoo on your face while jumping on a trampoline; probably isn’t a good choice. Ok, maybe you are thinking, “I’m an engineer, and everyone knows engineers don’t get tattoos.” Well ...
