In-Vehicle ICT Hinges on JAE’s High-Speed Transmission Connectors

apan Aviation Electronics Industry, Limited (JAE) has developed the miniaturized MX79A Series connectors for high-speed transmission between in-vehicle information and communication technology (ICT) units, like electronic control units (ECUs) of cameras.

Recently, multi-function and high-performance ICT in the automotive market has been progressing rapidly. A greater number of installed camera units is expected to be required to support new technologies, such as advanced driving-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving. These advances have resulted in an increase in the volume of information and digitalization. Therefore, there are demands for space-saving high-speed transmission compatible connectors, to help connect the increasing number of installed units.

JAE has designed the MX79A Series connectors for high-speed transmission to cater to these trending requirements.

The MX79A Series is ideal for use in combination with JAE’s recent automotive camera connector MX55J Series, as it supports connections on the ECU side. It achieves 30 percent reduction of mounting space compared to the company’s existing MX49A Series while meeting the high speed and reliability requirements for in-vehicle units.

For automotive camera applications, the installed camera is far from the camera ECU. To correspond with this situation, JAE’s harnessed products (MX55J to MX79A) can support 1.5Gbps differential transmission (LVDS) at lengths of 15m.

Furthermore, four mating key variations are available to prevent mis-mating, allowing for multiple connections to be used for the same module.
