The Classic MOST Technology Training Track consists of learning modules that are designed to support clients who are developing a system or device based on MOST technology. We recommend you start your education with the MOST System Training module, which serves as a foundation for the more-advanced INIC Training module, based on the OS81092/OS81110 INICs, followed by MOST NetServices V3.0 Training as the third module in this track.

MOST System Training – Two Days


This class provides a comprehensive overview of MOST technology, covering all the basic network functions including the handling of stream data, packet data and control messaging. It also introduces you to the basics of MOST system management, which are illustrated by a variety of configuration examples. This training consists of a mix of lectures and hands-on sections, where you will learn how to set up, configure and analyze a MOST system using popular analysis tools like OptoLyzer® MOCCA, OptoLyzer Studio, MOST System Management Module (MSMM) and MOST ToGo development boards for prototyping your designs.

This training is the foundation for the other modules in this track.

Prerequisites

  • General knowledge of digital hardware and communication techniques

Target Audience

  • Hardware developers
  • Software developers
  • Test engineers
  • Group managers

Content

  • Application examples, data types, topologies, PHYs, frames, synchronization, multiplexing, stream data handling, control messaging, packet data transfer
  • General device architecture, INIC features, data routing overview, power management, network diagnosis, ring break diagnosis

  • Hierarchical system management in MOST networks, basic communication principles

INIC Training – One Day


This class provides a comprehensive overview of the general and advanced features of the classic 0S81092 and OS81110 families of INICs and includes a detailed discussion of enhanced network and system stability concepts. Other key topics include the configuration of data routing and an introduction to the MediaLB® bus interface. This training includes hands-on activities where you will analyze the INIC’s communication and study/modify its configuration using test and development tools including OptoLyzer MOCCA compact, INIC evaluation boards, Microchip Automotive Target Manager and INIC Explorer.
