With multi-function sensors and miniaturized connectors, embedded antennas and lightweight wire, engineers can build next-generation infotainment applications that enable smarter experiences for drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.

Infotainment systems have long helped make our everyday experiences – in cars and airplanes, elevators and public spaces – more enjoyable, with convenient access to music, films, and other casual entertainment. As hardware and software advanced, these systems evolved to make it easier than ever to access our favorite films, books, and magazines as well as critical trip information – such as schedule changes, travel conditions, and destination updates.

Today, these systems are increasingly built with rugged electronic components for robust data, power, and signal connectivity. These components are making it possible to evolve the technology beyond the simple information-and-entertainment-hub concept into becoming a crucial part of the architecture in the devices, machines, and networks that are changing how we travel, live, and communicate.
