With all the talk about automated driving and advanced safety systems, infotainment systems and in-car WiFi, people don’t think about what it takes to make all of that happen. It’s the car’s nervous system. And that nervous system is about to get a lot more complex. By the year 2020, new cars will need 25 percent more connectors than those built in 2016 -  as many as 350. What’s even more astounding- those same cars will need a 67 percent increase in cabling   up to 5,000 meters. What will these systems enable?

Everything.

Everything in that car including exchanging 100,000 data messages per second. Think about that for a second. Your car. 100,000 data messages per second. Amazing!

And every message, every piece of data, every signal has to be delivered flawlessly under all conditions. This is what it means to be automotive grade. Delphi has a truly unique advantage in the marketplace. We are the only company to have both the electronics as well as the electrical architecture; both the brains and the nervous system. This allows us to design the optimal configuration and to ensure the highest performance with the greatest reliability.

With that blast speed you need a connector that delivers... every time. Delphi’s squib connector features a 100% scoop-proof interface and excellent blind mating to deliver on that safety-critical, automotive-grade promise. As a part of an overall Safety Restraint System (SRS), the ABX-5 squib connector withstands the toughest environments to deliver safety you can rely on.

Delphi's ErgoMate Mechanical Assist System enables manufacturing line operators who assemble up to 60 vehicles per hour to reliably mate connectors with a single-handed action. Best of all, it does not require pre-positioning or awkward grip changes.

This single, ergonomic action reduces assembly time, improves success with 'blind mating' of connectors, reduces connecting force and has a strong tactical feel to provide positive feedback to the operator.

Additionally, ErgoMate helps improve quality and performance by solving mismatched connections warranty issues.

By understanding the different strategies of our customers globally, our AK class 1 connectors have been optimized to adopt a multi-core shielding philosophy, multiple cables with one common shielding braid within a common jacket, complementing Delphi’s existing array of individual shielded and peripheral shielding solutions. As a result, our customers can draw on a full range of techniques for tackling EMI in high-voltage systems.

"With upcoming European regulatory targets by 2021 and the United States by 2025,
a 48-volt, mild-hybrid system bridges the gap between conventionally powered vehicles and pure hybrids or electric vehicles. Our 48-volt system takes advantage of electrification to lower emissions and increase fuel economy by up to 15 percent in direct injection engines."

Mary Gustanski, Vice President, Engineering

"We know how to share data at very high speed. Based on open architecture, Delphi Automatable Modular Ethernet Connection (AMEC) offers high-speed data communications in a modular and scalable design for our customers’ benefit. Using unshielded wires with standard 050 terminals, it represents the best performance in a miniaturized design."
Markus Kerkhoff, Engineering Director, Connection Systems

Delphi Advantage: Making car’s nervous system possible.


Given the advances in technologies applied now and in all future aspects of the car - we think differently. The car is a network; a nervous system that moves massive amounts of data around your car at incredible speeds - safely, seamlessly and securely.

Because of this, we design for an optimal connection system configuration, ensuring the highest performance with the greatest reliability.

Delphi Advantage: Enabling smart electrification


Our products provide the critical signal distribution and computing power backbone that supports increased vehicle content and electrification, reduced emissions and higher fuel economy.

 

Connected Car Challenge

The amount of data generated by connected vehicles is on course to break Moore’s Law – rapidly increasing as the automotive industry moves toward the production of automated mobility – with experts projecting this data may create a $750 billion industry.


Multi-Layer Display

Experiencing three-dimensional (3D) visuals is a thrilling experience for some, and a painful, disorienting and headache-inducing one for others. But what if it was possible to create dynamic, high-definition, in-vehicle display capabilities without the hang-ups of the existing 3D solutions?

Car and Phone Find a Happy Marriage

People love their cars and they love their phones, but not always together. A Delphi innovation may have created a “happy marriage” between car and phone - even when there are two phones in the car with different operating systems.
