Automotive Ethernet Integrated Connector Modules to Replace CAN Buses

October 29, 2019 by Paul Shepard

Bel Magnetic Solutions has added a line of MagJack® Integrated Connector Modules (ICMs) designed for automotive Ethernet applications. These single port 10/100BaseT/1GBaseT ICMs provide the ability to upgrade existing CAN bus signaling with Ethernet signaling and cables styles, suitable for driver-assist radar, infotainment, cameras and programable lighting applications.

The automotive industry is swiftly moving to replace existing CAN bus signaling with Ethernet signaling and cabling styles. Ethernet is both faster in transmission speed and lighter in cable weight - driving the current trend of innovation and cost reductions in next generation vehicles.

Bel's automotive Ethernet ICM's are the first SAE/USCAR2-6 compatible products in production with operating temperature ranges up to 100°C along with vibration withstand and sealing requirements.
