At the Automotive Ethernet Congress by Elektronik automotive, WEKA Group, in March 2023 in Munich, Germany, Dr. Harald Karcher has spoken with César Esteban about KDPOF’s multi-gigabit Ethernet technology over optical fibers in cars. KDPOF had demonstrated how our optical connectivity technology will solve future challenges with in-vehicle networks. The demo setup included robust, EMC-safe, and low-cost in-vehicle high-speed links with connectors from leading suppliers like MD Elektronik and Yazaki.
We’re looking forward to presenting our newest automotive Ethernet demo setup over fiber optics at VECS – Vehicle Electronics and Connected Services – in Gothenburg, Sweden. This year’s theme is: what is next in the autonomous & electric future of transportation? From May 23 to 24, 2023 at stand C04:12 in hall C, Óscar Ciordia and César Esteban will demonstrate how KDPOF’s optical connectivity technology will solve future challenges with in-vehicle networks. The demo setup includes robust, EMC-safe, and low-cost in-vehicle high-speed links with connectors from leading suppliers like MD Elektronik and Yazaki.
