Meeting the challenges of the connected world at electronica 2018

At its booth TE is demonstrating its range of terminals, connectors, antennas, relays and sensors to address these challenges in a Tech Talk programme that will incorporate 25 presentations over three days. It will also show several new products and technology highlights in a series of exhibits and demos.

Key themes and industries include:

The future is fast: preparing for 5G

The 5G infrastructure will address the speed, latency and bandwidth issues that hamper today’s 4G networks, but needs the technological innovation of companies like TE to be fully realised.

  • Sensors and components to power the 5G future. At the show, TE will introduce its new ERFV RF (radio frequency) Coax Connectors for 5G wireless applications
  • Network solutions that support speeds up to 100 times those of 4G networks
  • With much broader bandwidth and ultra-low latency, 5G will be integrated into infrastructure, impacting automated manufacturing, processing, retail and agriculture

Connecting cars to the cloud

With consumers demanding seamless connectivity between home, work, mobile devices and their vehicles, connecting cars to the cloud with 5G performance is vital.

  • End-to-end data connectivity within cars, industrial vehicles and beyond
  • HIRSCHMANN MOBILITY antenna technology for 5G
  • High-speed data connectivity for vehicle-to-cloud infrastructure

Enabling Connected Transportation

By meeting the connectivity challenges of powertrain electrification, even in harsh environments, TE innovations are paving the way for a new generation of all-electric, fully autonomous vehicles.

  • E-mobility and the path to faster EV charging
  • End-to-end connectivity for autonomous driving
  • The challenges of miniaturized automotive connectors

Enabling the Connected Home

As smart-home popularity grows, TE is developing a broad range of connectivity and sensor solutions for home appliances and devices, lighting, HVAC, security and more, enabling their connectivity and control in the automated home.

  • The expanded role of the smart kitchen
  • The importance of reliability in the smart home
  • Connectivity and sensor solutions for home appliances and devices, lighting, HVAC, security, and more

Enabling the Connected Factory

TE is enabling the smart factory and growth of Industry 4.0 by introducing high-performance information and communication technologies – products that connect computers, information systems, sensors, relays, robotics, tools, building facilities, materials and products – to each other.

  • Leveraging smart factories to save manufacturers space, time and cost
  • Improving manufacturing efficiency and quality, lessen machinery downtime, and enhance supply-chain control
  • Benefiting consumers by bringing innovative products to market faster

Sensing the Connected Future

TE’s intelligent, efficient and powerful sensors portfolio are driving innovation for companies and consumers around the world and throughout every industry.

  • Solutions for measuring position, pressure, temperature, humidity, force, vibration and much more, including a highly engineered sensor portfolio for harsh environments
  • Sensors Solutions booth (Hall B3, #311) will feature several new products, an IoT Smart Factory Augmented Reality experience and a model of the rLoop pod designed for the futuristic Hyperloop high-speed transport system

“With the rapid rise of 5G networking, cloud computing and vehicle-to-everything communication, we are seeing a convergence of diverse technologies,” notes Alan Amici, chief technology officer, Transportation Solutions at TE Connectivity. “The common denominator is the connectivity provided by TE, as exemplified by the car-to-cloud trend, which will be enhanced by the adoption and implementation of 5G.”
