The future fields connectivity and autonomous driving place increasing demands on electronic components in the automotive industry. To make mobility even more convenient, safer and more enjoyable, vehicles need a special connection technology with performance for high bandwidths.


For this, the Automotive Ethernet is the ideal solution. It provides the efficient design of “in-vehicle network architectures” of the future. The HIRSCHMANN AUTOMOTIVE DataStar acts as an interface for application areas from 100 Mbps (100BASE-T1) to 1 Gbps (1000BASE-T1). The portfolio of our connector systems ranges from open to watertight systems with different numbers of ports.
