"We are very pleased to see that Volvo Cars relies on the MOST150 technology in the new V90, just a couple of months after the release of the new S90 and XC90 with MOST150 technology," said Dan Termer, Microchip's automotive vice president. "Volvo Cars' continuous roll out of the latest MOST150 technology shows that this technology provides a reliable network platform for automotive infotainment systems."

MOST150 technology continues to meet Volvo Cars' high standards. When implemented, the technology reduces vehicle weight and offers high bandwidth communication. In addition, it creates a robust physical layer and proven EMC behavior. This latest version of MOST technology can transport video, audio, packet and control data with zero processor overhead and offers dedicated application-specific hardware interfaces to simplify data communication. In addition, the MOST technology networked infotainment system features ultra-fast system startup behavior to support early audio applications.

The  MOST Cooperation standards enable automotive OEMs and their Tier 1 suppliers with a proven and well-supported methodology for defining and implementing high-bandwidth infotainment and Advanced Driver Assistance (ADAS) systems, including a standard physical layer and a robust method for system management and control with superior reliability and Quality of Service (QoS). Using MOST technology also reduces weight for easier compliance with environmental regulations.
