Samtec High Speed Data LinksIn conjunction with Samtec, a well-known electronic connector company out of New Albany, Indiana,  PFC has created the PFC High Speed Data Link Flexible Circuits product line. The PFC Data Link is a direct cross to the Samtec Data Link product line. If you have used Samtec Data Links in the past, the PFC Data Link should be a direct electrical replacement.

Samtec, had been successfully delivering flexible printed circuit assemblies to their customers since 2002. The concept of making flexible printed circuits by Samtec was to assist in marketing and promoting their high speed connector systems such as the Q Strip™, Q Pairs™, Q Rate™, Q2™,  Edge Rate™ and the Razor Beam™. In 2012, Samtec decided to stop producing flex and asked PFC to provide flex assemblies to Samtec customers.
