César Esteban is Applications and Support Manager at KDPOF

César Esteban from KDPOF, in his technical workshop at the Wire Harness Congress on September 20, 2022 at 15:30 in Landshut, Germany, will display the benefits of optical communications for the in-vehicle network.

As the challenges of multi-gigabit increase, costs should not increase at the same scale. Optical provides a low-cost, robust, and reliable solution for the in-vehicle wiring system. Optical’s EMC superior performance prevents the need for heavy, bulky, expensive cables with rigid and age-prone shielding. The inherent galvanic isolation of optical fiber solves the ground loop issues and the return currents through cable shielding. Read more
