The MOST Cooperation demonstrates MOST50 and MOST150 multimedia technologies, both close to road-ready for the automotive industry. The MOST50 permits electrical implementation instead of plastic optical fiber, while MOST150 offers a channel to provide the physical layer for Ethernet in a vehicle. In addition to higher bandwidth, MOST150 features an isochronous transport mechanism to support extensive video applications, as well as an Ethernet channel for transport of IP-based packet data. The Cooperation also offers the MOST Specification of Electrical Physical Layer 1V1 to its partners and members, which enables data transmission over an unshielded twisted pair of copper wires while meeting electromagnetic compatibility requirements and reducing vehicle mass. MOST50 technology has been in production since 2007 at a Japanese automotive manufacturer.
