Efficient optical technology from KDPOF for safe backbone in vehicles

On August 13, 2021 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. IST (Indian Standard Time, 6:00 to 7:30 a.m. UTC), Óscar Ciordia, César Esteban, and Kenny Yoon will give the online seminar “The Use of Plastic Optical Fiber in the Automotive Industry”. The seminar is organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers India (SAE India).

Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) is becoming an integral part of the vehicle with interfaces to many different clusters of the electric/electronic systems in the automotive industry. POF is the medium of choice for automotive networks, primarily due to its versatility and is the best alternate solution to existing wiring technology. The key advantages of the optical solution are, among others, Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) thanks to its inherent galvanic isolation, robustness, low weight, and low cost. In his seminar, César Esteban will cover the following topics: the need for automotive wire line connectivity to evolve to Ethernet, advantages of optical links, use cases for fiber optics, as well as POF value chain and proposal.
