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

KDPOF designs first optical 1000BASE-RH SFP module

KDPOF has developed and validated the first 1000BASE-RH SFP module for optical gigabit connectivity in vehicles. The design of the new small form-factor pluggable transceiver module is based on a standard SFP supporting MSA registers via I2C bus. The module can operate at 100 and 1,000 Mb/s. It integrates the whole 1000BASE-RHC PHY and the header connector for SI-POF optical harness. “Our new SFP module has been tested and validated in a functional demo recently,” stated Carlos Pardo. “We are proud to accomplish the first milestone for future commercial optical 1000BASE-RH SFP modules, which will integrate into the optical ecosystem in automotive.”
