Samtec Inc., global provider of electronic interconnect solutions, has acquired Teraspeed Consulting Group, a team of interconnect engineers which provide enabling technology and support in the design and implementation of high performance systems.
Teraspeed Consulting Group will maintain operations under the name Teraspeed Consulting – A Division of Samtec.
“In all high-end products, the customers’ circuit boards must be optimized for the specific connector. To stay competitive, connector companies are building their SI expertise not just for their own design challenges but also to assist their customers,” says Eric Bogatin, Teledyne LeCroy Signal Integrity Academy. “This acquisition will strengthen Samtec’s support for solving customers’ SI problems.”
Teraspeed Consulting provides complete silicon-to-silicon signal integrity design solutions from bare die, to package, to board, to connector or cable, and back again. This team provides a combined 175 years of signal integrity expertise and capabilities directly to customers’ engineers, including IC package optimization, complete system design, signal and power integrity analysis, advanced package engineering, and in-depth signal integrity training.
As 28 Gbps systems move into mainstream markets, with 40 and 56 Gbps soon to follow, the need to develop solutions that support both high density and signal integrity performance at that speed is becoming increasingly important. At these extreme speeds, Teraspeed Consulting aims to guide customers through complete product design, taking the concept of signal integrity optimization beyond the connector and into the entire system.
