Bel Announces First of a Kind Automotive Ethernet Compatible MagJack® ICM

San Jose, CA [April 23, 2018] Bel Magnetic Solutions, a Bel group company (NASDAQ: BELFA and BELFB) and global leader in design and sales of MagJack® Integrated Connector Modules (ICM), today introduced a first of a kind 1GBase-T MagJack ICM, designed for next generation vehicles that utilize Ethernet signaling inside the automobile. In addition, this series is SAE/USCAR2-6 compatible with vibration and sealing requirements

The Automotive Ethernet MagJack is IEEE 802.3bp rated, UL recognized and RoHS 6/6 complaint. This integrated connector is also low profile, low halogen, and ideally suited for automotive ethernet applications like infotainment, driver-assist radar and cameras along with media converters and gateways. To support high temperature applications, the automotive Ethernet MagJack’s have an operating temperature of 100°C.

Ethernet is both faster in transmission speed and lighter in cable weight which is driving innovation and cost reductions in next generation vehicles.  Next generation autonomous vehicles need the expanded processing speed that ethernet can bring into the vehicle to link all the new electronic systems these cars need to operate without a human driver. The automobile industry is moving to incorporate ethernet signaling and cabling styles to replace the existing CAN bus signaling, used today.
