Recently we spoke to Julian Ferry, high-speed R&D manager at Samtec, to learn more about the latest developments in high-speed interconnects, which applications are driving them, and how Samtec is meeting the challenges. Read on for more from Samtec on signal integrity. CS: What are the primary applications in which system designers would look to high-speedRead More
As data rates increase, the bandwidth of signals increases and its rise time decreases. ALL signal integrity problems get worse with higher signal bandwidth and shorter rise time. Here, Dr. Eric Bogatin examines the connector challenges for high-speed serial link applications. Thanks in part to Netflix and YouTube, which together comprise as much as 50% ofRead More

Plateau HS Dock+ high-speed docking connectors haveRead More
Additions to the Mezalok line of connectors offer more design flexibility with new stack height and pin density options. TE Connectivity has extended its rugged, high-speed Mezalok mezzanine connector family. The new extensions include a stack height of 15mm and a new 320-position size, which fill a height gap and add additional pin density. TheRead More
Bob Hult reports on the connector technology highlights from DesignCon, especially the race to 100+Gb/s. The DesignCon 2014 conference and expo once again demonstrated the event’s value as the premier showcase for high-speed chip, connector, and PCB board technology. Featuring a full schedule of well-attended technical sessions over four days, a sense of excitement andRead More
December 2013 – Has the traditional PCB backplane approach reached its data speed limits? Many in the electronic manufacturing industry think so, and search for an alternate means to achieve data rates and throughput that will take us into the next generation of information technology. High-speed cable technology may be the answer.
October 2013 – Because coaxial cable assemblies are so vital to such a wide range of systems, from rugged ground-based electronic systems to satellites orbiting in space, the selection process for those cables should not be treated lightly. Choosing the right coaxial cable assembly is easier when you know what to look for in a high-frequency or high-speed coaxial cable assembly.
JEDEC finalized the DDR4 specification in September 2012. It is expected to hit server applications first, where its initial higher price can be justified, and then reach PCs later, as the prices drop.
January 15, 2013 – Flat, foldable Twin Axial Cable saves space in the box and rack without compromising performance.
August 2012 -What new developments are coming up in high-speed train design, and what role will cable and interconnect devices play? Here’s a look inside this fast-moving market.
