Samtec Announces Plans for DesignCon 2024

As a Diamond Sponsor of DesignCon 2024, Samtec will showcase products that support a new era of high-speed connectivity, and Samtec engineers will participate in 11 papers, panels, or presentations.

Samtec, Inc., the service leader in the connector industry, will have a large presence at DesignCon 2024, with 11 planned talks, sponsorship of the event’s Welcome Reception, and a booth on the show floor (#939) showcasing high-speed interconnect solutions for applications up to 224 Gbps PAM4. Samtec is a Diamond level sponsor of the event.

Booth Demos take Center Stage

Samtec is set to reveal a dynamic array of high-speed interconnect products at Booth #939 during DesignCon. Demonstrating versatility across front panel, mid-board, and backplane applications, Samtec’s showcase will feature collaborations with industry leaders including Alphawave Semi, Cadence, Keysight, Microchip, Multilane, Rambus, Rohde & Schwarz, and Synopsys, with active 112 Gbps and 224 Gbps demonstrations.

Aligned with the evolving landscape of high-speed connectivity, Samtec’s DesignCon booth will host 224 Gbps demos, spotlighting innovative products. Starting at the front panel, offerings include Flyover® SFP, QSFP, OSFP, and Samtec’s proprietary NovaRay® IO.

These products extend to mid-board families: Si-Fly High Density, Si-Fly Low Profile, NovaRay, and Accelerate® High Density (HD). Moving from mid-board to the backplane, Samtec introduces Si-FlyTM Back Plane and NovaRay Backplane alongside existing families ExaMAX® and Xcede® HD.

Samtec is thrilled to showcase optical mid-board options, including FireFlyTM, FireHawkTM, and the newly introduced HaloTM. These products will connect with partner platforms through Bulls Eye®, Samtec’s precision RF test point system, with a new Bulls Eye® 90 GHz version. Demonstrations will not only activate the products electrically but also mechanically, showcasing the stability and reliability of the systems and components.

Samtec products will also be part of active 112 Gbps and 224 Gbps demonstrations in partner booths – Keysight, Cadence, and Rohde & Schwarz.
