As the electrification of automobiles continues to advance, there is increased demand for technology that connects the powertrain of next-generation automobiles such as HEV and EV with information terminals and automotive monitor interfaces.

Current Challenges

・We provide products with high contact reliability that respond to the particular vibration, strength and noise of vehicles. We will continue to develop products in the future that will support the further downsizing and lightening of products that allow high-speed data transmission.

Proposal from SMK

・Supports high-speed transmission with antinoise measures
・Wide variety of automotive uses due to its heat- and motion-resistance
・Reduces the board mounting area due to component downsizing
