Molex Enhances Ethernet Network Platform for Autonomous Vehicles


Molex announced the next evolution of its 10 Gbps Automotive Ethernet Network Platform designed to support OEMs in the development and design of autonomous vehicles.

The product offers a complete vehicle connectivity ecosystem, delivering multizone integration across multiple hardware, software and interconnect cabling systems, with the flexibility to incorporate legacy automotive protocols as well as scalability for future upgrades.

“In close collaboration with our OEM customers, we translated the need for a safe, secure, reliable and connected vehicle foundation into a high-performance computing network on wheels,” said Dave Atkinson, director of business development at Molex. “By integrating features such as signal integrity, network traffic prioritization, system scalability and security, we have ensured that our solution addresses the demand for more in-vehicle processing power while helping automakers redefine what’s possible for autonomous vehicle technology.”

Molex’s multilayered security approach allows the platform to run multiple virtual machines and applications simultaneously while providing powerful encryption and certification technology for a more secure network.

Molex will showcase its multizone Ethernet network platform at CES 2019 at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Jan. 8-11.
