MCA/MCAH High Speed Data Connectors
The MCA series newly developed by IMS Connector Systems meets the high requirements of the automotive industry for new, coaxial connectors for maximum data speeds of up to 20 GBit/s and a frequency range of up to 15 GHz. Driver assistance systems and autonomous driving require higher real-time data rates to ensure safety in order to continuously calculate routes, recognize and classify objects and determine spatial distances.
MCA/MCAH Product Features
Large amounts of data from different cameras, sensors and navigation sources have to be merged. The MCA series enables high data transmission while saving installation space and weight compared to the FAKRA and HSD series. This new MCA connector system meets the requirements of VW's new mini-coax interface, also known as Mini-FAKRA.
