A Fiber Optic Connection System Designed for Automotive Applications 890202
Functions controlled by electronics in automobiles are projected to continue to increase throughout the 90s'. As the sophistication of the functions performed increases, data communications will play an increasing role. Accordingly, electromagnetic compatibility will become increasingly difficult to attain both functionally and economically with all-conductor-based data transmission. The need for alternatives such as fiber optics becomes apparent. This paper presents a fiber optic connection system designed specifically to meet automotive requirements.
