With developments in telematics and automotive communications technology, RF communication systems are now integral components in today’s automotive, trucking, motorcycle, watercraft, and off-road construction markets. To provide high levels of electrical and mechanical performance for telematics applications, the worldwide automotive industries have standardised a high-performing, cost-effective RF connector based on the FAKRA and USCAR standards. These Amphenol RF FAKRA connector systems are now available from TTI Europe.
Embedded within a plastic housing which provides multiple colour codes for clear identification and unique keying to stop mismating, these connectors are created to perform up to 6GHz and satisfy the particular mechanical and environmental demands of the automotive industry.
Typical applications include 360-degree cameras, autonomous vehicles, satellite radio, DSRC, and ADAS.
