Automotive Ethernet Congress: Gigabit POF for Electric Cars
KDPOF generated great interest with their presentation of GEPOF technology at Automotive Ethernet Congress on January 30 and 31, 2018 in Munich, Germany. Electromagnetic noise is a major issue in any electrical power train, both in full electrical or hybrid architectures. It affects the operation of the electronic circuits within the car and countermeasures have to be taken at early stages of the design. The communication bus has to be immune to the electromagnetic noise and, at the same time, comply with the mechanical, temperature, and weight constraints of the overall vehicle. Optical connections with POF provide the optimal means to achieve galvanic isolation while realizing data communications between the domains at the same time.
