In a move that will help drive industry adoption and
standardization of intermateable in-vehicle networking HFM FAKRA-Mini coaxial
connectors, Molex and Rosenberger have signed a dual-sourcing
agreement that allows Molex to produce the FAKRA-Mini automotive coaxial
connectors based on the Rosenberger HFM design. The agreement enables both
companies to provide high-speed intermateable connectors with identical
mechanical and electrical performance and features.

Enabling high-speed data transmission at data rates up to 20
Gbits/s needed for connected vehicle applications that require the operation of
multiple devices, screens, and cameras, the Rosenberger HFM FAKRA-Mini system
is designed for existing and future automotive applications. These include
advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), navigation, infotainment, and
intelligent connected vehicles.

HFM FAKRA-Mini connectors also save 80% of installation space and significant
weight compared to the conventional FAKRA generation, according to the
companies. For more information:
