Connectivity Solutions for Robust High-Speed Data Transmission in Vehicles (German language)

Presented by Dr. Christian Rusch, Manager Engineering/R&D

 

This presentation will be held in German and is about the following connectivity solutions:
To meet the requirements of advanced driver assistance systems up to fully automatic driving, a robust design of the data communication network is required. Especially for data links with data rates of 10 Gbps and more, the automotive industry is breaking new ground and the question of an optimal system configuration, which includes all components such as PHY, PCB, cables and connectors, arises. 


The presentation shows the market trends for new high-speed connector solutions, but also discusses different implementation options for high-speed connections with automotive-typical channels, taking environmental influences into account. The urgency of complete channel analyses using simulation tools will be demonstrated with practical examples.

Overview of V2X and how to integrate into today’s vehicles
Presented by Steffen Lang , Manager Product Management Wireless

 

An important step in automotive connectivity will be the V2X technology. We are working on innovative ways to integrate this technology in different facets: From the antenna, to signal conditioning and electronics.


There are several intelligent approaches for implementing a V2X system into the vehicle architecture. We address optimum locations for V2X equipment and discuss solutions including V2X antennas and compensators, and V2X control units with customized vehicle network interfaces. We also share our view on the two major implementations DSRC and C-V2X, investigating their capabilities.

Electromagnetic and thermal simulations in High Voltage board net applications

Presented by Marco Wolf, Principal Field Application Engineer

 

Data & Power are the fuel of the next century: while Advanced Driver Assistant functions (ADAS) and high-resolution sensors are driving the data transmission rates, more and more electrical power is demanded for the power train in battery electric vehicles (BEV). These disruptive mega trends are challenging the integration into the physical layer of the automotive board net because they show a strong coupling and interaction with sometimes contradicting requirements. While data needs a high robustness against electromagnetic interference (EMI) the power shall not violence the system with radiated emissions. The tight integration increases the thermal stress which must be managed in both. Connectors are playing a crucial role in this: as the modules, cable and the topology of the layout are determining the system performance, it is required to use a holistic system approach to simulate and validate Thermal-electric and Electro-magnetic behavior on system level - before they are affecting safety critical system functions.

Miniaturization Portfolio - NanoMQS / MCON 0.50

Presented by Anne Nentwig, Product Manager Terminals and Connectors

 

The growing innovation of vehicle functions increases the number of signal connections in the automotive modules and harnesses.


This accounts for the necessity for larger connectors and more terminal connections which leads to weight- and space problems in most vehicles, which eventually causes higher CO2 emissions.
Hence, TE presents here the Automotive Miniaturization Portfolio for sealed and unsealed Applications.


The focus will be on the NanoMQS and MCON 0.50 Portfolio which are the miniaturized connector systems specially developed to save space and weight, while maintaining the same robustness requirement from Automotive OEMs.
