System Optimization

Silicon-to-Silicon™ System Optimization capabilities assist designers in optimizing the high-speed serial path from bare die, to IC package and assembly, to PCB, to connectors and cable assemblies, and back again. These capabilities include:

  • Assisting IC layout designers to optimize power and signal integrity of the bare die during the IC design process
  • Developing complex, customized IC packaging and assembly solutions enabling maximum IC density, precision and ruggedness
  • Enabling PCB designers to create denser, faster PCBs by providing factory and field-based technical support to ensure signal chain optimization
  • Providing the products, tools, design expertise and consulting services to link high-speed signal chains between PCBs and through backplanes
  • Engineer industry standard and customized copper and optical cable assemblies at data rates up to 28Gbps and beyond
  • IC Packaging
  • Advanced package design and assembly capabilities along with the ability to assist in choosing the best technology and materials for an application, helping to save valuable design and engineering time.

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...
