Program highlights will include MOST150 implementation updates and experiences including evaluation and results of carmakers' activities, as well as know-how and lessons learned from running MOST150 serial development. Further presentations will introduce the latest MOST devices and systems, including optical connectors, test solutions and ongoing specification activities such as High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) on MOST. A look into the MOST future, together with a perspective on possible future MOST Technology aspects and applications, will round off this high quality conference program.
In the exhibition area during ICA 2011, the MOST Cooperation and various members will show the latest MOST solutions and applications. The focus of the MOSTCO demos will be on the seamless integration of Ethernet-based devices within MOST. In addition to transporting high-definition audio and video within the car, MOST150 provides an automotive-ready physical layer for Ethernet. This way, MOST is open to a broad variety of IP-based applications such as supporting apps on connected services and Internet access in general. Also included will be various aspects of application features based on MOST150 and of MOST150 itself. Looking at the expanding areas of automotive telematics use cases, one focus will be on meeting the demand the growing variety of consumer electronic devices poses on car infotainment systems. In addition, the flexibility of the MOST network technology will be demonstrated by showing star, daisy-chain, tree, and other topologies implemented on different physical layers: plastic optical fibers (POF), coax based electrical physical layer, and shielded and unshielded twisted pair (STP/UTP) copper wires.
