IMS Connector Systems has completed a collaboration agreement with Aptiv. The two say they will engage in a technical partnership and co-develop miniaturized coaxial systems for the transportation market.

The companies say miniaturized coaxial solutions offer two major advantages for a growing number of applications. The size of the connection system will be reduced to 60% and the transmission frequency (and data rate) increased from about 7 GHz in today's systems to 15 GHz.

Peter Peetz, CEO of IMS Connector Systems Group, said, “With a well-positioned and experienced partner like Aptiv, we look forward to working successfully on exciting new opportunities to further promote technological progress with our innovative solutions offering to the OEM market."
