SAMTEC 'S high-speed cable design guide covers data rate cable assemblies, RF cable assemblies, I/O cable assemblies, and high-speed flex circuit assemblies. It also discusses Samtec's Signal Integrity Division.
Data rate cable assembly standard products include standard, high, and extreme data rate assemblies featuring micro coax and twinax cable. These cables achieve performance ranging from 400 MHz to 3GHz (0.5m at -3dB insertion loss) depending on the connector type and cable configuration. Examples are given of the many custom data rate cable applications possible using Samtec's line of connectors and cable options.
RF cable assemblies include industry standard MMCX, MCX, SMA, and ganged MMCX connectors. I/O Systems include D-Subs and high-speed/high-density systems. High-speed flex circuits terminated with connectors, edge cared interfaces and ZIF interfaces are also discussed. Examples of custom capabilities are demonstrated for each cable system.
Samtec Signal Integrity Division is available for services ranging from questions on standard products to fee basis consulting assistance in developing entire high-speed systems.
