In-Vehicle Data Connectivity
The need for real-time data in turn drives the need for high speed in-vehicle data networks as well as antennas to allow high speed vehicle-to-world communications.
TE plays a major role in connecting critical electronic vehicle networks. These networks, which can be conductive, optical, or wireless, ensure flawless transmission of data from sensors and systems including advanced safety systems and enhanced antenna technology for vehicle-to-world-communication. TE's modular and scalable Ethernet solutions have been able to show a data transmission rate of 100 Mbit/s can be achieved with standard automotive connectors based on TE’s NanoMQS termination system in combination with unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable. Leading products include:
0.50 HSL Connectors
TE 0.50 HSL (High Speed Link) connector is designed for high speed data transmission and to meet automotive requirements. An ultra-compact 0.50mm terminal allows for a lighter and smaller connector design.
Connectors for USCAR30 Standards
TE’s high speed data portfolio for USCAR 30 standards are optimized for high speed connections in infotainment applications. The connectors are qualified to USB 2.0 requirements and supports USB as well as LVDS data rates.
TE’s HDMI Type E Connector is designed for high speed data transmission and to meet automotive requirements. It has a robust design to improve vibratility and impact resistance in comparison with consumer HDMI connectors. It is EMI optimized with full shielded design.
Stripline RF Connectors and Contacts
Our Stripline RF connectors helps to support increasing demand for low cost connectors with complex crimping for high frequency systems in vehicle applications such as global positioning systems (GPS), mobile phones, radios, mobile television and digital satellite radios.
Fiber Optic Connections for MOST Networks
TE’s fiber optics provide a complete range of components for MOST 25 and 150 based on optical as well as eMOST, including PCB and harness connectors, cable assemblies and processing equipment ─ all backed by TE application know-how.
TE's Marcus Schulte describes how we work with our customers to help limit vehicle emissions. One example is a sensor we created to measure the quality and concentration of urea in systems that reduce the amount of greenhouse gases created by diesel engines.
