Implementing MOSTCO's Roadmap
Despite the media hype about Ethernet in the car, the MOST technology is still far more established in the infotainment domain than any other networking technology. The current roadmap, introduced at this year’s MOST Forum has been enhanced; additional waypoints and goals have been added to the roadmap. This article addresses the most significant aspects of these goals, the status and the outlook from Microchip’s perspective.
in a multi-node infotainment system is on track for production in 2016. The first adopter of MOST150 cPHY full duplex in an infotainment network starts production in few years. Evaluation of MOST150 cPhy at additional car makers in Europe and Asia is currently ongoing. Microchip performs complete system test and validation, works directly with customers to improve system and EMC performance, offering schematics and layout reviews (MOSTCheck) and EMC debugging.

Cooperate with other organizations to accelerate standardization and growth

MOST Cooperation as a standardization body has been instrumental for the success of MOST Technology. However, cooperation with other automotive, industrial and consumer bodies is required to achieve wider acceptance in the market. Users of MOST Technology will benefit from wider acceptance as this would yield in faster time-to-market, higher quality and larger volumes, hence in an even more competitive MOST Technology solution.

In 2015, MOST Cooperation presented the integration of AUTOSAR within the MOST network. A MOST/AUTOSAR gateway demonstrator connected the vehicle network with a MOST network using AUTOSAR mechanisms and tunneling of communication of two AUTOSAR applications through a MOST network, either through the MOST Control Channel or over the MOST Ethernet Packet Channel. Both scenarios provide for a partial integration of a MOST network into the AUTOSAR standard. In the solution presented by ETAS, existing SWCs of the AUTOSAR stack, as well as the configuration mechanisms provided by AUTOSAR and the corresponding tools, may be reused as far as possible. With some extensions, for example for handling the dynamic MOST network management, the integration of MOST mechanisms into the AUTOSAR standard can be done in a quite straight-forward manner.

One additional example is the collaborative approach of MOST Cooperation, CI+ and Microchip to offer customers a complete, easy-to-use, and cost-efficient solution to transport the latest CI+ protected digital video inside automobiles.  MOST Cooperation released its latest MOST Stream Transmission Specification that includes support for the MOST CI+ Interim
