Kyocera targets automotive with 5655 series board-to-board connectors

Kyocera has announced the 5655 Series electronic Board-to-Board connectors optimised for high-speed data transmission and featuring a 0.5mm-pitch and a stacking height of just at 4mm - among the thinnest for this class of connector.

The development of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and deployment of connected vehicles has greatly expanded the scope of automotive electronics and the commercialisation of these systems will require highly miniaturised automotive electronics to be mounted on limited available space within the vehicle.

Kyocera’s new 5655 Series connectors feature a stacking height of just 4mm, and a proprietary floating structure that has been optimised for high-speed data transmission. The connectors are also available in larger dimensions to serve a wide range of design requirements.

The connectors’ dual-point contact structure ensures excellent contact reliability. Furthermore, the connectors’ mould structure reduces breakage when connecting or disconnecting to ensure superior durability.

The 5655 series is designed for use in advanced equipment including mm-wave radar and LiDAR to detect vehicles and pedestrians; e-mirrors; navigation systems; and driver monitoring cameras.

The connectors can operate in extreme temperatures from -40℃ to +125ºC, and they comply with the MIPI D-PHY standard (2.5Gbps) for high-speed transmission interfaces.
