The INICnet™ Technology and UNICENS Training Track consists of learning modules that are designed to support clients who are developing an infotainment system based on INICnet technology that is managed centrally by the Unified Centralized Network Stack (UNICENS). We recommend you start your education with the INICnet System Training module, which serves as the foundation for the more-advanced INICnet Hardware Training, followed by the UNICENS Training as the third module in this track.

INICnet System Training – Two Days


This class provides a comprehensive overview of INICnet 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 UNICENS 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 install, configure and analyze UNICENS on a Linux® OS-based system using popular analysis and development tools like MPLAB® Network Creator, OptoLyzer® MOCCA compact and OptoLyzer Studio.

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