Design Challenges for Ethernet Adoption in Commercial Transportation


Industrial and commercial vehicle manufacturers are designing a greater degree of sensitive, data-intensive features into trucks, buses, special-use vehicles, agricultural, and heavy-duty construction equipment. The trend is similar to what we’ve seen in the personal automotive market: rear-view and side-view cameras, infotainment systems, sensors, GPS, comfort controls, and more.

This 60-minute Webinar examines how these features are being designed for the industrial and commercial transportation market, which requires not only signal performance according to the automotive ethernet protocol but also more robust connector construction, full sealing against extreme environments, and packaging flexibility that allows for both hybrid and bulkhead-mount deployments. It also discusses a new family of data connectivity products that address these requirements and meet the IEEE 802.3 protocol for 100BASE-T1 and 1000BASE-T1 automotive ethernet twisted pair connections as well as GMSL/FPDLINK protocol performance for coaxial connections.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
