MCA – Mini Coax Automotive – Miniaturized multipole RF- & High Speed Data Solution

MCA – Mini Coax Automotive – Miniaturized multipole RF- & High Speed Data Solution

The newly developed MCA series by IMS Connector Systems complies with the high requirements set by the automotive industry for coaxial interconnections in high speed data transmission up to 20 Gbit/s and frequency range up to 15 Ghz. To ensure safety, driver assistance systems and autonomous driving require higher rates of real-time data in order to calculate routes continuously, recognize and classify objects, and determine spatial distances.
High data volumes from different cameras, various sensors and navigation sources have to be aggregated. This MCA series allows a high data bit rate while saving installation space and weight compared to the FAKRA and HSD series. This new MCA - connector series is compliant with the new Mini-Koax Interface from VW, aka Mini-FAKRA.
