TE Connectivity launches innovative new hybrid inline connector solution that provides ease of manufacturing, reduces the number of connections required, simplifies supply chain complexity and reduces cost

New Generation Y 68P Sealed Hybrid Inline Connector addresses wire harness complexity in next generation passenger vehicle by combining signal, power and data connectivity into one connector

Winston-Salem, N.C. – March 30, 2022 – In today’s data-intensive automotive environment, there is an increasing amount of electronic content in modern vehicles, which is leading to an ever-increasing cable harness complexity impacting manufacturing, supply chain, costs and vehicle weight. OEMs are therefore seeking to reduce this complexity by simplifying architectures and consolidating connections within the car.

To address this need, TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has launched an innovative Generation Y 68P Sealed Hybrid Inline Connector that enables ease of manufacturing for OEMs, reduces the number of connections, simplifies supply chain complexity and reduces cost. The new Generation Y 68P is an all-in-one solution that combines signal, power and data connectivity into one connector.

“Often data connectors are found running alongside low voltage signal and power connectors creating a complex harness, which leads to higher costs, additional weight, more space and complicated manufacturing,” said Kevin Presnell, product manager at TE. “The Generation Y 68P sealed hybrid inline connector is a compact and reliable solution that supports the ongoing industry challenges faced by OEMs, and can positively and cost-effectively impact supply chain.”

The Generation Y 68P sealed hybrid inline connector combines the robust and reliable Mate-AX mini coaxial connector with a combination of 0.64/1.5/2.8mm power and signal circuits into one hybrid connection. It is compact in size for a 68P inline connector making it an excellent miniaturized hybrid solution for inline connector consolidation.

The most common use for the Generation Y 68P sealed hybrid inline connector is applications where separate low voltage power and signal connectors are running alongside traditional data connectivity, including high-resolution cameras and displays, antenna connections, transfer of video and sensor signals.

Flexible Power for a Smart World

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and CUI Inc.

Safety, EMC compliance, your project schedule, and your BOM cost are all important factors when you are considering what power supply you will need for your next design. You also need to think about form factor, which capacitor will work best, and more. But if you’re not a power supply expert, this can get overwhelming in a hurry. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ron Stull from CUI Inc. about CUI PBO Single Output Board Mount AC-DC Power Supplies, what this ac/dc core brings to the table in terms of form factor, reliability and performance, and why this kind of solution may give you the flexibility you need to optimize your next design.
