PCI Express® is an I/O interconnect bus standard (which includes a protocol and a layered architecture) that expands on and doubles the data transfer rates of original PCI. PCI Express® is a two-way, serial connection that carries data in packets along two pairs of point-to-point data lanes, compared to the single parallel data bus of traditional PCI that routes data at a set rate.

High-speed edge card sockets support one, four, eight and sixteen PCI Express® links and mate with PCI Express® cable assemblies.

I recently attended the Engineering Design Show in the UK, where one of the clear trends in evidence was the rise of power connectors for printed circuit boards (PCBs).  The reasons are pretty clear. New technology is making ever-greater demands for more power in smaller spaces. ...
In October, we shifted our focus to working on a few small and medium-sized projects that had been on the back-burner, and also chipped away at some technical debt that had been piling up, which is nerd speak for “picking up our toys.” This type of work isn’t always glamorous, bu...
“112 Gbps PAM4 data rates will save the world!” A reader of the Samtec blog may think that. Why? The demand for data never ceases. A recent report says that US teenagers spend seven hours a day in front of screens. But how real are 112 Gbps PAM4 data rates? Test silicon is availa...
Collins Aerospace recently published a white paper entitled “Qualification Of High Density Connector Solutions For Military and Avionic Environments.” It discusses their qualification process of high density connectors for rugged military and avionics applications.  This paper fo...
In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new ultra micro power connector in town with an unmatched power-to-size ratio and incredible design flexibility. Sometimes it’s true, new is better. Let us count the ways: mPOWER™ ultra micro power connectors pass 21 Amps per blade in about ha...
