Miniaturized Automotive Terminals and Connectors

Miniaturized Automotive Terminals and Connectors

Our miniaturized automotive connectors enable innovation throughout the vehicle with automotive-robust space saving solutions.

The number and complexity of electronically controlled vehicle functions are growing at a rapid pace which, in turn, creates need to save space. Automotive OEMs are increasingly becoming aware of the need to ensure that the sub-system modules they source are fitted with automotive-grade vibration resistant connectors.


TE Connectivity's (TE) NanoMQS and MCON 0.50 terminal and connector systems meet the most stringent OEM specifications while enabling space saving of up to 50%. In addition, TE has developed a fully-automated process that is suitable for series production and can also be used for semi-automated production.
