Molex Demonstrates Strength in Autonomous Vehicle Design with Enhanced Automotive Ethernet Network Platform at the Automotive Ethernet Congress 2019

will showcase the next evolution of its award-winning 10 Gbps Automotive
Ethernet Network Platform at the fifth annual Automotive Ethernet
Congress (AEC) being held February 13 and 14, 2019 at The Westin Grand,
Munich, Germany. This solution is designed to support OEMs in their
development and design of autonomous vehicles. Molex offers a complete
vehicle connectivity ecosystem delivering seamless multi-zone
integration across multiple hardware, software and interconnect cabling
systems, with the flexibility to incorporate legacy automotive protocols
as well as scalability for future upgrades.

“We are deeply committed to a leadership role addressing increased
demand for a high-bandwidth end-to-end Ethernet-based open architecture
solution,” stated Alex Bormuth, director of business development for the
German market, Molex. “The next evolution of our Ethernet-based platform
delivers fast and reliable data transmission, support for IP protocols,
network traffic prioritization, and stringent security protocols that
are all essential to designing next-generation intelligent, autonomous
and connected vehicles.”

Meeting demand in the automotive industry for a safe, secure, reliable
and connected vehicle network architecture, the latest enhancements to
the Molex Automotive Ethernet Network Platform include state of the art
technologies enabling Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and
Automated Driving (AD) connectivity, security and safety, infotainment
and high-speed networking capabilities.

At the system’s core is the Molex gateway, a secure networking hub that
aggregates and processes data from all domains and devices, seamlessly
integrating multiple hardware and software systems as well as legacy
automotive protocols. Molex’s multi-layered security approach includes
enhanced hypervisor capabilities that allow the platform to run multiple
virtual machines and applications simultaneously, giving automakers more
flexibility, while also providing powerful encryption and certification
technology for a more layered and secure network. Safety enhancements
include new multi-zone, fail-functional, and redundancy capabilities.
The reliable interface necessary to seamlessly connect the
high-bandwidth, data-intensive applications is the Molex HSAutoGig
high-speed Ethernet cabling solution designed for greater vehicle
autonomy, delivering best-in-class 20 Gbps+ data speeds.

ADAS/AD require a vast array of complex components incorporated into the
future-ready Molex Automotive Ethernet Platform, including Molex
connectivity solutions enabling vehicle-to-X (V2X) communication,
electronic control units (ECUs) to process data, and sensors to perceive
external data and software algorithms to synthesize the vehicle’s
environment in real time.
