Connector is an electromechanical component critical for connecting electrical circuits together. In the automotive industry the connectors are mainly used in the automotive-oriented equipment to connect electrical devices and wires. The automotive connectors market has major applications in the power train system; which is followed by safety and infotainment systems. The electronic content for vehicles has been increasingly a result of the increasing demand for further appropriate systems such as automatic transmissions, driving assistance systems, and infotainment.
Automotive connectors are the interconnect systems used for on-board electronics and safety devices in automobiles. Applications include communication, entertainment, navigation, sensors, actuators, and engine control systems.
Automotive electronic components are rapidly increasing and the conventional cable interconnects are exchanged by intelligent and long lasting bus systems. Thus, this facilitates high speed data transmission and increases the efficiency of electronic components; thereby enabling high speed data transferral and increasing the efficiency of electronic and safety components.
