This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.


SAMTEC SEARAY SEAF and SEAM connectors are high-speed, high-density and provide designers the flexibility to address 100GbE, Fibre Channel, and other high-performance protocols. The connectors support up to 56Gbps PAM4 and feature a 1.27mm pitch with Samtec’s Differential Vias™ technology for a simpler breakout region and wider routing channels.
