As driving becomes more automated, manufacturers need to find room for an ever-growing number of sensors and cameras—and they need to connect these systems in a high-bandwidth, ultra-reliable network.
With decades of experience in vehicle electronics, Molex works directly with auto manufacturers and tier-one suppliers to enable reliable camera, radar and LiDAR systems. And we’ve developed a V2X antenna system that is key to the next generation of automated driving.
Molex micro connectors support the high bandwidth demanded by advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD). These interconnects link boards within electronic control units (ECUs) and domain control units (DCUs).
With one of the smallest footprints on the market, the High-Speed 0.50mm-Pitch Floating Board-to-Board Connector offers data rates up to 32 Gbps for the most demanding applications.
The SlimStack Board-to-Board Connectors support robotic assembly with an exceptionally wide floating range.
Whether tracking traffic or keeping an eye on the driver, cameras play a key role in automated driving. But manufacturers want to add cameras without increasing assembly time or compromising reliability.
The Automotive Camera Backshell Assembly Solutions are designed for easy installation and extraordinary durability. Its FAKRA interface supports high-speed media protocols for crystal-clear video.
LiDAR sensing requires secure internal micro connectors and high-speed networking cables with rugged durability.
To enable maximum design fxibility in ADAS/AD applications, the FD19 series of Easy-On FFC/FPC Connectors come in a wide variety of circuit sizes and actuator options, including zero insertion force (ZIF), slider and flip.
Molex Transportation High Speed Networking Cables meets and exceeds in-vehicle connectivity, infotainment and ADAS/AD needs with a breadth of options all designed to optimize performance, weight and size.
On-board radar devices need to fit into constrained spaces and transmit strong signals to control units. Responding to this requirement, SlimStack Board-to-Board/Board-to-FPC Connectors FSB3 Series is the smallest size in the floating connectors market.
With the FD19 series of Easy-On FFC/FPC Connectors, Molex provides small pitch sizes from 0.20 to 2.00mm that are ideal for space constrained radar applications. Positive locking features and a dual-contact design ensure reliable connections.
Molex Transportation High Speed Networking Cables transmits sensor information throughout the vehicle, designed to meet protocols and data rates for maximally responsive ADAS/AD performance.
