Molex has joined hands with
Excelfore to streamline its 10-Gbps Ethernet Automotive Network for connected
cars. Molex is employing Excelfore’s connected mobility solutions to ensure
that high-speed data transmission inside vehicles is highly reliable and that
it features prioritization, scalability, and security.

The 10-Gbps Ethernet Automotive
Network from Molex boasts different vehicle profiles with end-to-end data
integration and prioritization. And for that, it incorporates Excelfore’s
protocol stacks and eSync System for over-the-air (OTA) updates, diagnostics,
telematics, and analytics-based smart-learning integration.

Molex’s automotive network employs protocol stacks for in-vehicle Ethernet
audio-video bridging (AVB) and time-sensitive networking (TSN) run on cameras,
video displays, head units, ECUs, and network gateways so that CAN, LIN, and
other busses can be reached by Ethernet.

Next,
the
eSync System can push data via cloud-based eSync servers to the vehicle for OTA
software and firmware updates. Or it can pull data
for diagnosing and tracking vehicle status and performance.

Excelfore’s eSync System uses a
patented Adaptive Delta Compression Engine to optimize compression of OTA
software updates and minimize airtime for delivery. All OTA and diagnostic
traffic streams are fully encrypted and secure with authentication in both
directions.

Moreover, it simplifies troubleshooting
and repairs because all system components are accessible from one test port
whether the vehicle is diagnosed in a dealership service bay or is accessed remotely
by the automotive OEM.
