The increased adoption of telematics in the automotive industry has driven the demand for high speed data communication systems in vehicles. Amphenol RF has responded to this demand with the introduction of the HSD (High Speed Data) product portfolio. HSD interconnect products focus on various application areas in the automobile, such as the inside compartment for connections to displays, head units and rear seat infotainment modules.

The product portfolio can be used in combination with a variety of protocols such as LVDS (Low Voltage Differential Signaling), GVIF (Gigabit Video interface), USB, IEEE 1394 as well as Ethernet protocols.
