Data Connectivity Systems

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.
