Secure networking for EV projects

Modular Automotive Connectivity (MAX) offers high-quality and affordable vehicle networking for both traditional and new mobility providers, says Molex. It uses two modules from Swiss-based positioning and wireless communication technology company, u-blox.

MAX can be used for small series, such as vans or targeted electric vehicle (EV) projects. It can also be used for data gathering, serving as the secure client to cloud services.

As a central node in a vehicle, MAX enables both internal and external networking. It is flexible, scalable and is an open software concept, all important requirements of the dynamic mobility market, notes Molex.

MAX can be tailored to the customer’s requirements through individual configuration. The modularisation enables a short time-to-market compared to tailor-made solutions, says Molex. The path can be used for telematics service providers who can use MAX as the basis for a backend connection, as well as for the development of various applications.

The TOBY-L4 and NEO-M8L, by u-blox, are built into the MAX connectivity platform. TOBY-L4 supports the reception and transmission of data over the mobile network to the backend, enabling mobile internet access. The NEO-M8L automotive grade GNSS module supports positioning. MAX can determine the position not only via GPS but also via Galileo, Beidou and Glonass for deployment around the world.

Molex has a presence in more than 40 countries, offering products and services for many markets, including data communications, consumer electronics, medical, industrial, automotive, and commercial vehicles.
