Bandwidth-hungry electronics are increasing on aircraft as passengers and crews expect more from in-flight entertainment, cabin lighting, security and freight monitors, and other features. A significant amount of wiring and connectors is required to enable these capabilities, and designers need to implement smarter connectivity solutions without adding weight.
This 60-minute Webinar explores how the adoption of Ethernet technology is evolving to support the SWaP and performance needs of modern aircraft cabin networks. ARINC 854 single pair Ethernet technology-like TE's Mini-ETH-saves up to 70% system-level weight, cutting space and complexity by 30% compared to current eight-conductor solutions. Customers can also expect 50% faster termination time compared to existing installations.
The Webinar's speaker panel – experts from TE Connectivity – also discuss:
- The origin of TE Connectivity's single pair Ethernet solution, Mini-ETH, and how it transitions from autos to aircraft
- Technical advantages of Mini-ETH
- SWaP, performance, and implementation advantages of Mini-ETH
- Future provisions of Ethernet technology in aircraft
An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
