MOST Forum Will Explore Sustainability, Robustness, and New Features of MOST Technology
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 seventh MOST Forum on April 21, 2015 in Stuttgart/Esslingen (Germany). Conference presentations will examine higher speed rates as well as different physical layers and transceivers. In the area of compliance and quality assurance, presenters will look at virtual prototyping, testing and simulation. Speakers will discuss connectivity to other standards, new features, and simplified access regarding network and system architecture. “Professionals from the automotive electronics industry and academics, including researchers, designers, engineers, system developers, purchasers, and managers, as well as media representatives, will again come together in this international platform for exchange and networking,” stated Henry Muyshondt, Administrator of the MOST Cooperation.
After opening the conference and welcoming the attendees, Henry Muyshondt will guide the program. TE Connectivity, Fraunhofer IIS, the University of Leuven, and Ultra Communications will introduce various aspects of the physical layer. During the lunch and networking break all attendees and speakers are welcome to visit the exhibition area to learn about available MOST solutions and implementations in brand new vehicle models. Compliance and quality aspects will be introduced by the Research Center for Information Technology (FZI) and K2L. Further afternoon sessions will focus on network and system architecture by ETAS, the MOST Cooperation, and Microchip Technology.
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, Hamamatsu Photonics, Intrepid Control Systems, K2L, Microchip Technology, Ruetz System Solutions, Tektronix, Telemotive, 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) 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 170 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 17 international carmakers and 55 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.
