Standards and specifications from various organizations provide a guideline to manufacturers in measuring the quality of their product. This helps to ensure end customers are purchasing a trustworthy and high performance product. Standards are increasingly important in the Automotive Industry. Apart from safety standards, the ability to withstand vibrations and high temperature is also a concern. These standards aim at developing better technologies. LVDS; LV214 and USCAR are three significant automotive standards.

LVDS stands for Low-Voltage Differential Signalling. This is a generic interface standard for high-speed data transmission. LVDS is a global standard which is especially considered for automotive displays and digital cameras.

LV214 is an automotive standard developed by German car manufacturers Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche and Volkswagen. This standard helps to monitor the quality of the crimped terminal. The terminals must exhibit certain crimping force in order to be used in an automotive wire harness.

Amphenol ICC’s Minitek MicroSpace™ Crimp-to-Wire connector platform’s unique design enables LV214 Severity-2 and performs at 1.8, 1.5 and 1.27mm pitch.

US Council for Auto Research which is commonly known as USCAR develops standards in multiple areas of automotive industry including safety, electrical wiring, electronics, and energy storage.

Newest automotive designs are enabled with high performance inter-device communication systems.  Amphenol ICC provides high speed I/O connectors like HSD, HSBridge, NETBridge™, USB 3.0/2.0 and HDMI Type E, validated to USCAR specifications and LVDS protocol in such automotive designs to meet technological advancements.
