Delphi to Provide Digital Connectivity System for GM Vehicles in Europe

Delphi's high-speed digital data technology will be included on new GM vehicles in Europe beginning with model year 2009.

TROY, Mich. — Delphi has signed an agreement to provide its new High-Speed Digital Data (HSDD) connectivity systems for inclusion on new General Motors vehicles in Europe.

Delphi won the business soon after unveiling its new HSDD technology. HSDD connectivity systems provide cost-effective, automotive-engineered connection systems for a broad range of high-speed protocols, according to Matthias Weber, managing director, Delphi Connection Systems Europe. Among the high-speed protocols HSDD connection systems serve are USB 2.0, 1394, LVDS, FlexRay, eMOST and Ethernet, he said.

This is important because it simplifies connections in vehicles that use multiple data protocols, Weber explains. "Delphi’s HSDD connectivity provides one system for connecting all protocols and all data bus systems, and is suitable for both automotive and commercial vehicle applications," Weber said.  

The technology uses 0.64 standard crimp technology on ISO (International Standards Organization) centerline spacings, while a new tactile lock system with connector position assurance ensures proper connections are achieved and maintained.

Delphi’s HSDD connectivity systems transport high-speed digital data with continuous shielding and employ standard automotive assembly technologies. They also make camera and video applications used in safety systems possible. And, Weber adds, the new HSDD technology generates a data loop from header to header with the possibility to add inline interfaces.

For USB connections with Delphi’s HSDD connectivity systems, Delphi has designed a universal adapter.
