TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensor solutions, today announced its new MATEnet modular and scalable connector for automotive Ethernet. The new solution provides the performance needed to transmit large volumes of data for transmit large volumes of data for infotainment, on-board diagnostics and more in vehicles.
TE’s MATEnet modular and scalable connector is designed for the harsh automotive environment and can transmit up to 1Gbit/s. Based on miniaturized standard automotive terminals, such as NanoMQS, Generation50, MCON 050 and 0.50 Series, MATEnet connectors represent a global terminal platform. In addition, they can be used with twisted pair (TP), unshielded twisted pair (UTP) and shielded twisted pair (STP) types of cable for Ethernet applications.
“The demand for more networking and bandwidth in vehicles continues to increase,” said Andreas Engel, senior manager of business development, Infotainment, for TE’s Automotive business. “Our new solution provides the performance needed to seamlessly handle more data while supporting the reliable and cost-efficient use of Ethernet in vehicles. TE is well positioned to support OEMs in their pursuit of a leading role in driving the connected car market.”
TE’s MATEnet modular and scalable connector for automotive Ethernet conforms with Ethernet IEEE specifications 100-BASE-T1 (100Mbps – Project IEEE802.3bw) and 1000 BASE-T1 (1Gbps – Project IEEE802.3bp). The new solution can also be customized, depending on the application or need. The new solution is ideal for infotainment, on-board diagnostics and 360° camera-system.
