Samtec’s Eye Speed® I/O two piece system achieves high cycles and the 0.80 mm pitch connector design minimizes PCB real estate. The equalized cable option provides a performance boost to existing systems, without the expense of altering the board.
Equalized cables are beneficial in systems where equalization was not implemented into the chip. They are a simple way to upgrade existing systems without the expense of altering the board.
The equalized option is an ideal middle-ground solution for applications where traditional copper cables are inadequate, but an expensive optical upgrade is unnecessary.
Performance improvements include:
|Eye Speed® I/O - Max Data Rate||Eye Speed® I/O - Max Cable Length|
|Cable Length||Unequalized||Equalized||Data Rate||Unequalized||Equalized|
|1 meter||21.0 Gbps||25.5 Gbps||14 Gbps||80" (2.032 mm)||112" (2.845 mm)|
|3 meters||9.5 Gbps||13.0 Gbps||28 Gbps||0" (0.0 mm)||20" (0.508 mm)|
FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ is the first interconnect system that gives a designer the flexibility of using micro footprint high-performance optical and low-cost copper interconnects interchangeably with the same connector system.
Samtec FireFly™ copper and optical cable systems provide the flexibility to achieve higher data rates to 28 Gbps and/or greater distances, simplifying board design and enhancing performance.
The system’s miniature footprint allows for greater density and closer proximity to the IC, enabling chip-to-chip, board-to-board, on-board and system-to-system connectivity.
Samtec’s Flyover QSFP Systems provide improved signal integrity and architectural flexibility by flying critical high-speed signals over lossy PCB materials and directly to the panel via ultra low skew twinax cable. The ultra-high-density design includes sideband signaling via press-fit contacts to help increase airflow, and a multitude of “End 2” options allow for maximum design flexibility.
