Mid Board Optics Systems

FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ is a future-proof, inside-the-box mid-board optics interconnect solution, with performance to 28 Gbps per lane and a path to 56 Gbps. Designed for the interchangeability of copper and optical using the same high-performance connector set, this easy to assemble system improves signal integrity and increases signal path length to meet today’s data rate requirements and the next generation. With an industry leading miniature footprint, FireFly™ accommodates greater density and closer proximity to the IC for chip-to-chip, board-to-board, on-board and system-to-system connectivity.

A myriad of mechanical and electrical specifications must be considered when selecting the best connector system for your design. An incomplete, first-pass list of considerations include the type of termination, available footprint space, processing and operating temperature and ...
Doing business today isn’t quite like it was back in the 80’s. Sparkling teeth and x-ray vision shouldn’t be a side effect of a customer using your product. This, of course, is said in jest, but no longer do we sell only a product; but a product and physical, chemical, and electr...
Blockchain. Cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin mining. Algorithmic trading. These disruptive technologies depend on high-performance computing platforms for reliable execution. The financial services industry invests billions in hardware to support the near real-time services consumers re...
Samtec has released the industry’s first 0.50 mm pitch edge card socket with justification beam. This design allows high-speed signals to pass through an incredibly dense connector while keeping the mating PCB at a reasonable cost. The socket’s justification beam is designed to s...
In the Standards world, specifications are categorized to three ascending levels: Corporate, De Facto, and Industry Standard. Corporate Standards are achieved when design elements are adopted company-wide. De Facto Standards often grow out of a Corporate Standard to act as a solu...
