Intelligent network interface controller

  • 11-Jun-2011 02:19 EDT

With a change in process technology from flash memory to ROM as well as size reduction, SMSC’s OS81092 is a cost-down version of its MOST50 intelligent network interface controller. The adoption of SMSC’s MOST50 electrical and unshielded twisted pair cabling offers automakers increased flexibility for designing in-vehicle networks while at the same time providing a potential savings on the physical layer interface and cabling. Devices such as a DVD changer, tuner box, navigation unit, an amplifier, and a telephone system can be interconnected to an efficient network using the OS81092. Audio signals can be digitally sent to an amplifier, allowing for crisp sound, and video signals can be digitally transferred to rear seat displays to generate a vivid movie experience.

An ultralight door architecture nets a 42.5% weight savings compared to a current production door, and that's enough to put this lightweight concept, developed via collaboration, in an enviable position.
If there’s any doubt that connectivity is the next wave for advanced features and functions, it should dissipate after CES 2017. A multitude of advances in over the air updates and security will be shown in Las Vegas in January, setting the stage for much of the auto industry’s technology rollouts throughout the year.
Human-machine interfaces are changing rapidly and consolidating as radio head units handle more functions and connect to diverse systems inside and outside the vehicle.
Development of advanced automotive technologies is increasingly being driven by suppliers, rather than OEMs. And megadeals worth at least $500 million that are behind a growing number of next-gen technologies may reach the highest level since before the Great Recession. That’s the view from Las Vegas, as the 2017 CES (formerly the Consumer Electronics Show) opens to over 160,000 attendees.
