Microchip's MOST® ToGo Reference Designs Make Creating Automotive Infotainment Systems Easy
CHANDLER, Ariz. --(Business Wire)--
Microchip Technology (News - Alert) Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of
microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today
announced its MOST®
ToGo Reference Designs, which make it easy for designers to
learn and implement the proven MOST
technology in their automotive infotainment systems. MOST ToGo
enables designers to leverage Microchip's extensive experience and focus
on their application software development, rather than studying the vast
MOST specifications. Included in both reference designs are three MOST
network-compliant hardware nodes with full schematics, code and function
catalogs-everything needed to train, learn or develop a full MOST system
design, from concept, to implementation to testing. The kits can be used
as a complete blueprint for critical circuits, to create quick
demonstrations and significantly speed overall development and testing
Both kits provide a MOST technology hardware reference design and fully
implemented software stack, which helps developers pass compliance
testing on the first try. The boards include a daughter-card connector,
enabling the addition of expansion boards for more audio, video,
wireless or a host of other functions.
"MOST technology is a proven and robust automotive infotainment network
solution," said Dan Termer, vice president of Microchip's Automotive
Information Systems Division. "With MOST ToGo, Microchip customers can
get their MOST designs to market quicker than ever."
