Program for the MOST® Forum 2014 Released

Microchip Technology Will Outline MOST Vehicle Networking Strategy

by Lenny Case

The MOST® Cooperation - standardization organization for the leading automotive multimedia network technology Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) - is pleased to announce the conference program for the upcoming MOST Forum (www.mostforum.com) on 13 May 2014 in Stuttgart/Esslingen (Germany). Ganesh Moorthy, Chief Operating Officer for Microchip Technology, will inaugurate the conference with his keynote speech on Microchip’s MOST vehicle networking strategy as one of the key technology drivers behind MOST Technology. Microchip is deeply involved in further development of the leading automotive network technology. Besides next-generation gigabit speed capability, MOST functions will be defined in the broader context of automotive networking in general. The conference and accompanying exhibition will again provide a platform for exchange and networking for professionals from the automotive electronics industry and academia, includi  ng researchers, designers, engineers, system developers, purchaser, and managers as well as media representatives.

Conference Program: Roadmap from MOST150 Rollout and Advancements to Next Generation Networking

After opening the conference and welcoming the attendees, Henry Muyshondt, Executive Director of the MOST Cooperation, will guide the program. Following the keynote speech by Microchip Technology, presentations by AutoNetworks Technologies, TE Connectivity and Ultra Communications will introduce solutions and scenarios for the future MOST physical layer. Compliance and quality aspects will be introduced by K2L and Ruetz System Solutions. During the lunch and networking break all attendees and speakers are welcome to visit the exhibition area to learn about available MOST solutions and realizations in brand new vehicle models. The afternoon events will focus on MOST network and system architecture by the Research Center for Information Technology (FZI), Microchip Technology, MOST Cooperation and Quanta Storage. Following the afternoon discussion and exhibition break, Daimler and Microchip will round up this conference program with further presentations on aspects of network an  d systems architecture such as the launch of MOST150 in the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class vehicles and a look into the MOST future as the standard for in-car communication.

In the exhibition area, various companies will present their innovative MOST solutions and applications. Amongst the exhibitors will be the MOST Cooperation. Further exhibits will be by AUDI AG, Daimler AG, Hamamatsu Photonics, K2L, Microchip Technology, Ruetz System Solutions, Tektronix, Teledyne LeCroy, Telemotive, TTTech Automotive, Vector and others. Several partners will again provide their knowledge and expertise to the MOST Forum. These include industry partner ZVEI (Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association, www.zvei.org) and media partners Auto Electronics, Automotive IQ, Automotive Industries, EE Times Europe, Elektronik automotive, and ElektronikPraxis.

About MOST Technology

MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) is a multimedia networking technology optimized for use in cars and other applications. It enables the transport of high Quality of Service audio and video together with packet data and real-time control over a single transmission medium. MOST can use plastic optical fibers (POF), coax based electrical physical layer, and shielded and unshielded twisted pair (STP/UTP) copper wires that meet automotive environmental requirements. Today, MOST is used in over 150 car models as the communication backbone for their information and entertainment equipment.

About MOST Cooperation

The MOST Cooperation (MOSTCO) is the organization through which MOST Technology is standardized and refined so that it continues to stay abreast of the latest industry requirements. Today it consists of 16 international carmakers and more than 60 key component suppliers. They have joined together to work with the MOST Technology and to contribute to its innovation. The MOST Cooperation is prepared to embrace efforts to further develop and standardize the technology for other industries and to establish the corresponding work structures. The MOST Cooperation was founded in 1998 to standardize MOST Technology as a global standard for multimedia networking. Audi, BMW, Daimler, HARMAN and Microchip Technology are its core partners and constitute its Steering Committee. For more information see http://www.mostcooperation.com.
