MATEnet Connector System

MATEnet connectors are modular and scalable miniaturized data connector system for Automotive Ethernet. Based on TE’s proven NanoMQS terminals, MATEnet connector system offers true automotive robustness and is compatible with both unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) and Shielded Twisted Pair (STP) variants. MATEnet connector system can transmit up to 1 Gbps according to 100BASE-T1 and 1000BASE-T1 standard. In addition, MATEnet connector system uses higher modulation data transmission technologies, enabling it to support data rates up to 4 Gbps.
