AcceleRate® Flyover™ SI Characterization Kit

SI test platform for characterizing AcceleRate® Cable Assemblies


As data rates increase, trace length on PCBs decrease. Samtec’s high-speed, Flyover™ cable assemblies simplify PCB design and limit signal degradation in high data rate applications. The AcceleRate® Flyover™ SI Characterization Kit provides system designers and SI engineers an easy-to-use solution for testing 0.635 mm AcceleRate® Slim Body Cable Assemblies.

The AcceleRate® Flyover™ SI Characterization Kit delivers a high-quality system with robust mechanical design. Please contact Samtec’s technical experts at for additional information.

112 Gbps Samtec Flyover™ Demo Samtec’s Ralph Page walks us through a live demonstration of a Samtec Flyover™ system which enables 112 Gbps PAM4 performance. The Credo CDR generates two ports of 31-bit PRBS data at 112 Gbps PAM4 data rates. The signal travels from the Credo Pelica...
Since Samtec began in 1976, free connector samples have been a cornerstone of our business model. That said, we’re always looking for ways to continue to improve how we get samples into your hands. Recently we rolled out a simplified way to place sample requests on the website, w...
It was hot, really hot. In fact, things were getting so bad the walls around us were starting to melt, and just like that it was over; we failed current carrying capacity. That is Current Carrying Capacity (CCC) in a nutshell, well it would be if the parts were failing. Samtec pe...
In this video from SC18, Jignesh Shah of Samtec’s High Speed Connectivity Group walks us through a demonstration of a rearchitected Open Compute Project (OCP) wedge switch. By rearchitected we mean it utilizes Samtec Flyover™ high-speed cable assemblies to achieve next gen speeds...
