Automotive connectors offer position assurance

Rosenberger HFM High Speed FAKRA-Mini is described as the best performing system of mini-coax connectors for the automotive industry. The coaxial connector system can be applied for frequencies up to 20GHz, while the intelligent modular system ensures fast transmission of high data rates up to 28Gbps. The small dimensions enable space savings of up to 80 per cent compared to conventional FAKRA connector types.

The additional connector position assurance (CPA) prevents mated connectors from accidental unmating and allows the connectors to be used in safety applications such as driver assistance or autonomous driving systems. CPA types are also available for other automotive connectors from Rosenberger.
