LISLE, IL – June 4, 2018 – Top tier automakers are facing new challenges as they strive to build next-generation, intelligent vehicles. They require agile connectivity solutions with seamless end-to-end network integration across hardware, software and services. Molex – a leading supplier of high-speed technology innovation – is meeting the increased demand for in-vehicle processing power by providing an end-to-end Ethernet-based solution that operates at high bandwidth across multiple hardware and software components. A fully-integrated platform provides industry standards-based, scalable and agile networks in the vehicle and beyond to the cloud.
Molex will demonstrate its most recent development – a connected vehicle technology ecosystem which includes a high-speed 10 Gbps automotive Ethernet backbone solution that integrates highly reliable signal integrity, prioritization, scalability and security – at TU-Automotive 2018 on June 6-7, 2018 in booth C225 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Mich.
“Today’s automakers are demanding solutions that not only address today’s vehicle needs, but that are also compatible with future developments in our industry and, as a result, the global automotive Ethernet market is forecasted to grow by more than 20% each year for the next several years,” said Dave Atkinson, director of business development, connected mobility solutions, Molex. “The automotive Ethernet ecosystem we have developed is designed to enable OEMs to deliver their vision for the car of the future. It is a future-ready, automotive-grade network platform that delivers seamless integration across multiple hardware and software systems as well as legacy automotive protocols.”
This solution, which made its debut at CES 2018, is an in-vehicle network solution that features a fully functional 10 Gbps Ethernet backbone with secure over-the-air updateability for software and firmware, helping avoid the need for vehicle recalls and enabling in-vehicle diagnostics over IP. By investing in key technologies and working alongside industry-leading suppliers and collaborators, Molex has proven that complete end-to-end signal integrity within a full vehicle network is not only possible, but also commercially viable.
Molex will also highlight its next-generation line of in-vehicle USB Media Modules and Smart Chargers designed to fit into limited space and connect consumer devices to the vehicle with automotive-grade durability. Additionally, the Molex experts will be on hand in booth C225 to demonstrate and discuss these latest solutions.
