Modular and Scalable Connectors for Automotive Ethernet

Modular and Scalable Connectors for Automotive Ethernet

TE plays a major role in connecting critical electronic vehicle networks that enable transmission of data from sensors and systems. TE’s MATEnet modular and scalable connectors have been able to show a data transmission rate of 100 Mbit/s and 1 Gbit/s according to IEEE 100BASE-T1/1000BASE-T1. This can be achieved with standard automotive connectors based on TE’s miniaturized NanoMQS termination system in combination with unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable or shielded twisted-pair (STP) cable.
