  • 10-May-2013 03:46 EDT

Microchip Technology Inc.’s OS81118 is the first MOST150 intelligent network interface controller (INIC) with a USB 2.0 high-speed device port and an integrated coax transceiver, claims the company. With its USB 2.0 port, including USB physical layer (PHY) and high-speed inter-chip interface, the OS81118 enables designers to create in-car mobile and Wi-Fi connectivity applications on the MOST150 network by connecting a standard Wi-Fi/3G/LTE module via USB. According to the company, this solution reflects today’s market demands for consumer applications within the automotive environment, such as Internet access, e-mail, social networking, and local services. The 72-pin quad-flat no-leads (QFN) package also allows automotive engineers to connect the most up-to-date multicore consumer systems-on-a-chip (SoCs) to in-vehicle MOST networks. In addition to the optical physical layer (oPHY) interface, the OS81118 integrates a coax transceiver, opening a cost-reduction path on the MOST physical layer.
