Samtec Virtually Showcases Latest Silicon-to-Silicon Interconnect Solutions at SC20

New Albany, IN Samtec Inc., a privately held $800 MM global manufacturer of a broad line of electronic interconnect solutions, will virtually showcase and demonstrate their latest high-performace interconnect solutions at SuperComputing 2020.

HPC system designers must balance increasing throughput, scalability and density demands with cost and time-to-market. Samtec addresses these challenges with industry-leading design expertise, system optimization, and innovative architectural solutions ideally suited for HPC applications. Key technologies will be featured during SC20 via the Exhibitor Forum, Virtual Demonstations and Featured Products.

SC20 Exhibitor Forum

Brian Niehoff, Technical Marketing Engineer at Samtec, will present the topic Thermal Management of HPC Hardware Architectures via Immersion Cooling.

As computing power increases, air cooled systems cannot meet current thermal requirements in HPC architectures. Immersion cooling economically combats system heat, noise, power consumption and compute density. In this presentation, Samtec will discuss both novel immersion cooling techniques and observed results from testing across its interconnect product portfolio.

SC20 Virtual Demonstrations

  • PCIe® 4.0 Over Fiber Adapter Card: Samtec and Dolphin
  • UCLA’s Ocean High-Throughput Processor in the CMS Experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider
  • Thermal Management of HPC Hardware Architectures via Immersion Cooling
  • PLDAs latest PCIe® 5.0 Evaluation and Development Platform

SC20 Virtual Demonstrations

Key Samtec high-performance interconnect solutions will be featured at SC20. From front-panel to the backplane, HPC system designers can count on key solutions from Samtec including:

  • Si-Fly™ 112 Gbps PAM4 Low-Profile High-Density Cable System
  • NovaRay® 112 Gbps PAM4 Extreme Density Arrays
  • FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™
  • AcceleRate® HD, AcceleRate® HP and AcceleRate® Cable Interconnect Solutions

The Exhibitor Forum, Virtual Demonstrations and Featured Products will occur virtually from November 17-19, 2020.

Common Design Pitfalls When Designing With Hall 2D Sensors And How To Avoid Them

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

This article discusses three widespread application issues in industrial and automotive end equipment – rotary encoding, in-plane magnetic sensing, and safety-critical – that can be solved more efficiently using devices with new features and higher performance. We will discuss in which end products these applications can be found and also provide a comparison with our traditional digital Hall-effect sensors showing how the new releases complement our existing portfolio.
