Due to the increasing density of electronics and microprocessor technology in electric vehicles, the EMC of energy and communication cabling and the associated components are becoming increasingly important.
This applies in particular to the high-voltage or HV connectors. The high switching transients of the electric motors and the high voltages of the power inverters pose a great challenge to the developers. And full functionality is required at voltages up to 1000 V in a temperature range of -40°C to +170°C with low emissions and high interference immunity even after aging. Additional requirements include low weight and inexpensive design.
