Driving Interconnection System Reliability to Meet New Drivetrain Electrification Demands


Rapidly expanding automotive megatrends, such as drivetrain electrification and autonomous driving, have led to a sharp demand for ever-lighter vehicle body weights. Evolving architectures, along with the resulting increase in body control modules, require even more connections to PCBs, presenting challenges – and opportunities – to PC board manufacturers. This 60-minute Webinar addresses not only challenges faced by manufacturers but also new approaches that can be taken with press-fit technology, as well as single pin insertion and the connector seating equipment required for proper termination.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
