Molex, Samtec collaborate on next-gen data center solutions

Molex and Samtec have announced a Licensed Source Agreement which brings together innovations that provide a new generation of solutions to meet the evolving needs of 56G and 112G data speeds, the company said.

Molex and Samtec are the only suppliers licensed to offer the Molex BiPassâ„¢ and Samtec Twinax Flyoverâ„¢ Systems to meet the needs of the growing number of high-speed applications required as data centers evolve with hyperscale models and increased virtualization.

The scope of the Licensed Source Agreement includes next generation high speed cable, cable assemblies and connectors and is intended to offer customers two sources for a complete optimized channel that will allow for a broader base of twinax technology both inside and outside of the box.

As bandwidth requirements rapidly increase, routing signals through lossy PCBs, vias and other components has become one of the most complex challenges designers face. The Molex and Samtec collaboration aims to bring an electrical and mechanical solution with advanced features for improved signal integrity, longer reach, EMI containment and thermal efficiencies.
