PCI Express®

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 connetion 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.

Samtec offers both PCI Express® connector and cable solutions.

Processing a component onto a PCB used to be fairly straightforward. Through-hole products, or a single or double row surface mount with a larger centerline rarely offer unique challenges obtaining a proper solder joint. However, as electronics continue to get smaller and connect...
The Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact our lives in both expected and unexpected ways. Unfortunately, one of the expected ways is a drop in charitable donations. Analysts predict anywhere from a 6% decrease – with many planning for a bigger decline than that. Also, more than h...
