Microchip Technology Inc. has revealed that the FAW Group is the first Chinese car manufacturer to join the MOST Cooperation (MOSTCO). Microchip claims to be a leading provider of the technology behind MOST infotainment systems, and supplies the network interface controllers needed to deploy this high-speed automotive network.

MOSTCO is the organisation through which MOST technology is standardised and refined so that it continues to stay abreast of the latest industry requirements. MOST technology provides a standardised way to interconnect audio, video, control and Internet Protocol (IP) information within modern vehicles. This latest adoption shows its continued and growing acceptance among global automotive OEMs, with an installed base of more than 150 million MOST devices in more than 170 car models since 2001.

"We welcome FAW's use of MOST technology as the backbone of their in-vehicle information and entertainment network," said Dan Termer, VP of Microchip's automotive information systems division. "MOST technology continues to enable high-function yet cost-effective infotainment systems all around the world."
