Enabling Smart Mobility while Optimizing Tomorrow’s Vehicle’s Architecture

At Aptiv, we understand the full electrical architecture of today’s and tomorrow’s vehicles. By leveraging a unique expertise in architecture optimization and new mobility software enabled solutions, we manage complexity over the whole system and simplify components integration to deliver the high-speed data and high-power electrical systems required for feature-rich, highly automated vehicles.

Enabling Smart Mobility
Optimize Data Integrity

A standard solution to optimize Data Integrity

Automotive in-vehicle network speeds are increasing at an exponential rate. Future systems will require multi-gig data transfer rates with connections that support rates up to 20 GHz. Ensuring data integrity at every level is becoming critical. A reliable and fully shielded two-wire solution is required to avoid any loss in speed or signal quality.

Our technical partnership with the high frequency connectivity company Rosenberger allows us to enhance capabilities in high-speed data transmission to deliver high-performance, cost-effective, high-speed data solutions for the automotive market Our global engineering and manufacturing footprint allows us to serve our global customers locally.
