Firecomms announces MOST150 transceiver

Firecomms has introduced a MOST150 fiber-optic transceiver (FOT) that provides a bandwidth of 150 Mbps for automotive infotainment networks over Plastic Optical Fiber (POF), a lower-cost alternative to copper cabling.

Firecomms said the transceiver, FCM150, is included in a connector system developed by Alps Electric Co. Ltd., and is part of a MOST150 infotainment network being developed by Hyundai Autonet.

MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) is a multimedia networking technology optimized for use in cars and other applications. MOST150 features an isochronous transport mechanism to support video applications, as well as an Ethernet channel for transport of IP-based packet data.
