Samtec Releases Family of AcceleRate® HP High-Performance Arrays

Basis for new PICMG COM-HPC®Interconnect Solutions

New Albany, IN: Samtec Inc., a privately held $800 MM global manufacturer of a broad line of electronic interconnect solutions, proudly announces the release of next-gen AcceleRate HP High-Performance Arrays. AcceleRate HP supports 112 Gbps PAM4 extreme performance in an ultra-micro footprint.AcceleRate HP High-Performance Arrays feature an open-pin-field array which maximizes grounding and routing flexibility. System architects can route high-performance differential-pairs, single-ended signals and high-current voltage rails via the same interconnect.Additionally, the 2.2 / 2.4 / 2.2 mm row pitch eases routing of differential signals. Crosstalk is improved with the increased space and the ability to add more ground vias around the differential signals.“Samtec’s new AcceleRate HP High-Performance Arrays set the standard for high-speed 112 Gbps PAM4 performance in a small form factor,” said Michael Boone, Product Manager, High-Speed Board-to-Board at Samtec, Inc. “Fast-growing applications such as AI accelerators, ASIC emulators and next-gen edge computing platforms leverage these unique benefits.”

Key AcceleRate HP High-Performance Arrays features include:

  • Dense 0.635 mm pitch
  • Low-profile 5 mm and up to 10 mm stack heights
  • Up to 400 total pins available
  • Roadmap to 1,000+ pins
  • Data rate compatible with PCIe® 5.0 and 100 GbE
  • BGA termination for easy assembly and self-alignment
