Microchip has unveiled its MOST ToGo Reference Designs that the company said aim to foster novel designs using the MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) infotainment data bus. The kits will make it easy for designers to learn and implement the MOST technology in their automotive infotainment systems, stated Microchip.

MOST ToGo enables designers to leverage Microchip's experience and focus on their application software development, rather than studying the vast MOST specifications, said the company. Included in both reference designs are three MOST network-compliant hardware nodes with full schematics, code and function catalogues: 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 times.


Both kits provide a MOST technology hardware reference design and software stack, which helps developers to pass compliance testing at the first time. The boards include a daughter-card connector, enabling the addition of expansion boards for more audio, video, wireless or a host of other functions.

Two flavours of the evaluation kits are available. The MOST150 cPhy MOST ToGo Evaluation Kit (B20001) and includes everything needed to implement a MOST150 coax network. The other design kit is the MOST50 ePhy MOST ToGo Evaluation Kit (B20004). It enables designers to implement a MOST50 electrical network.
