Today, driver assistance systems have become indispensable. Inside the vehicles, one thing in particular takes place for this purpose: data exchange. The data rates that are sent and processed are enormous and the networking of the automobile is one of the most important components of driver assistance systems and autonomous driving systems. The transmission of data must be secure and, above all, fast. Automotive Ethernet makes it possible to transmit these data volumes at high rates within the automobile.

With the Y-HDE series (HF116), Yamaichi Electronics offers the perfect connectors for these applications. The High-Speed Data Ethernet connectors are capable of transmitting data rates of up to 20 Gbps. At the same time, the Y-HDE connector meets all the requirements placed on automotive systems, such as qualification based on LV214 and the USCAR standard.

The core of the Y-HDE connector is the differential contact pair, which is delimited by an external contact. In the 90° version, the contacts are continued via a die-cast housing which shields the data. The front insulating body, the so-called coding, is available in a variety of colours. Each colour is also assigned a mechanical coding. So there is double security against accidentally plugging in the wrong side of the cable.

The Y-HDE series is available as a single (i.e. with a differential contact pair), double or quad version. In addition, all versions are available in various colour and mechanical codings. This allows customers to make a flexible selection according to the application and the need for signal tracks. The Y-HDE series can be processed fully automatically using the THR process and is supplied in tape & reel packaging.

The company also offers customised solutions for the Y-HDE series, e.g. as a panel version. In addition to the Y-HDE series, Yamaichi Electronics also offers other I/O connectors for data transmission, such as HSD, Fakra and MiniFakra connectors.
