HSAutoLink™ interconnect system leverages Molex's expertise at producing high-speed cable technology and adapting to needs of the emerging segment of the "Connected Vehicle" (Vehicle-to-Vehicle communications, Infotainment and Telematics).
HSAutoLink™ (alternatively referenced as USCAR USB) is the emerging high-speed data bus for vehicles. The data bus encompasses technologies used in other markets such as Universal Serial Bus (USB 2.0), Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS), 1394, FlexRay, eMOST and Ethernet.
Cable assemblies utilizing the USB Standard A receptacle provide shrouded and latching capabilities for mounting in a vehicle, providing a consumer interface for vehicle passenger use. Following similar design principles, the HSAutoLink™ cabling system is specified to allow for positive latching and connection to a media module within the vehicle. This connection links with the media module allowing a digital-signal conversion to a vehicle’s more traditional-analog signal, enabling the use of devices such as MP3 players, flash drives, portable navigation systems, etc.
