Vehicle Electronics – Connectors

Susan Perris recently spoke with Greg Pratt, a 25 year veteran in the connector space, and formerly with Molex.

He shared some insight regarding connectors in the vehicle space, “The trend I’ve seen the most is the increase in high speed connectors.  In 2010, automotive suppliers started looking at high speed connectors for use in rear view cameras.  Prior to the 2010 timeframe, most cars did not have camera systems, but this is when the move started, and today, most new cars have camera systems in place.”

“High speed connectors are in demand now, because the higher the speed, the better the picture on the camera,” he added.

He only sees this trend continuing, “Looking to the future, the speed will continue to increase because of demands from autonomous vehicles.”

Things just keep getting faster and faster!
