Chips Enable Cost-Effective Smart Antenna Modules
Microchip Technology Inc.

As a result of MOST Cooperation releasing its MOST150 technology coaxial physical layer specification, Microchip supports smart antenna module connectivity to in-vehicle MOST150 advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and infotainment networks via its OS81118AF Intelligent Network Interface Controller (INIC) with integrated coax transceiver. The MOST150 coaxial physical layer is suited for smart-antenna telematics and other data traffic from AM/FM, DAB, SDARS, DVB-T, 3G/LTE, GPS, and Wi-Fi signals. Additionally, the ability to exploit the proven and low-cost coaxial cabling to simultaneously deliver communication signals and power to these in-vehicle systems simplifies design and installation efforts while lowering costs and reducing vehicle weight for compliance with environmental regulations.
