Automotive Ethernet for Connected Vehicles
The connected vehicle is powered by the demand for motor vehicle convenience and safety. This demand is driven by the need for connections with consumer devices and information to provide a safer environment for the driver and pedestrians. Both share the need for data connectivity and the power to transfer and process large amounts of data at a high speed in the vehicle. TE is able to provide automotive ethernet solutions based on long-standing experience in the production of reliable data connectivity, antenna and sensor systems. Our technologies are focused on consumer port applications, board-to-board connections, vehicle-to-vehicle communication, and next-generation harness architecture.

What’s Next in Data Connectivity?
Next Generation Design: Advanced Infotainment Systems
For advanced high-data volume infotainment systems and next generation data architectures requiring automotive grade robustness and reliability, TE will offer extended performance versions of its current MATEnet (for Ethernet) and MATE-AX (COAX) products. These will support data speeds up to 12Gbps.
Next Generation Design: Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
TE is in advanced stages of development for the next generation of highly robust data connectors for safety-critical, ultra-high data volume applications such as LiDAR and RADAR that will generate very large amounts of uncompressed data. TE will offer data connectivity solutions transmitting up to 24Gbps and supporting levels 3 and 4 autonomous driving use cases.
Data Connectivity for Safety Critical Applications
TE is in advanced stages of development for the next generation of highly robust data connectors for safety-critical, ultra-high data volume applications such as LiDAR and RADAR that will generate very large amounts of uncompressed data.
Data Connectivity for In-Vehicle Networks
In-vehicle networks will need the lightest and leanest cable assemblies and connectors, and likely in ever denser configurations. TE is helping make those optimizations, to get more data faster in the most power efficient way, but with less total material.
