New MOSTCO Administrator

MOST(R) Cooperation Appoints Rainer Klos as Administrator

New MOSTCO Administrator

Rainer Klos is the new Administrator of the MOST Cooperation

Rainer Klos of Microchip Technology has been appointed new Administrator of the MOST(R) Cooperation (MOSTCO) – the standardization organization for the leading automotive multimedia network Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST). The MOST Cooperation sincerely thanks his predecessor Dr. Christian Thiel who was one of the earliest developers of MOST, and significantly advanced the technology during his 8 years as Administrator. During his term, the second and third MOST generations were rolled out. He worked on developing the first vehicle that in 2001 came out with MOST. Now, there are 140 vehicle models on the road with three generations of the technology.

In his new role, Rainer Klos will be closely involved in leading MOST Technology beyond its current third generation MOST150, based on the Specification Rev. 3.0, into the future. „I feel very privileged to become a substantial part in developing the upcoming automotive network that will unite infotainment and driver assist functions in one network,“ stated Rainer Klos. „The automotive network of the future requires a powerful and scalable multiplex architecture with free topology configuration. MOST Technology fulfills these requirements and is therefore best primed for the future. Thanks to the multiplex architecture with powerful interfaces, multiprotocol channels, synchronicity and low latency of the network, the extendable MOST architecture is ready for the coming needs of the automotive data network.“ The administrator is responsible for the execution and organization of decisions made by the Steering Committee.

Engrained in the MOST World

Rainer Klos is a veteran of MOST Technology, having essentially participated in the work on this leading automotive network standard from the very beginning. He has always been involved in automotive infotainment following his Engineering Diploma from the Trier University of Applied Science. His career started out at HARMAN. Later he co-founded Oasis SiliconSystems where MOST originated. Since 1995, Rainer Klos has been responsible for the development of network standards, ICs, software and tools for MOST. He has been Vice President of Engineering at SMSC, and with the acquisition by Microchip Technology he has become Director Engineering of Microchip Technology Germany.

About MOST Technology
MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) is a multimedia networking technology optimized for use in cars and other applications. It enables the transport of high Quality of Service audio and video together with packet data and real-time control over a single transmission medium. MOST can use plastic optical fibers (POF), coax based electrical physical layer, and shielded and unshielded twisted pair (STP/UTP) copper wires that meet automotive environmental requirements. Today, MOST is used in over 130 car models as the communication backbone for their information and entertainment equipment.

About MOST Cooperation
The MOST Cooperation (MOSTCO) is the organization through which MOST Technology is standardized and refined so that it continues to stay abreast of the latest industry requirements. Today, it consists of 16 international carmakers and more than 60 key component suppliers. They have joined together to work with the MOST Technology and to contribute to its innovation. The MOST Cooperation is prepared to embrace efforts to further develop and standardize the technology for other industries and to establish the corresponding work structures. The MOST Cooperation was founded in 1998 to standardize MOST Technology as a global standard for multimedia networking. Audi, BMW, Daimler, HARMAN and Microchip Technology are its core partners and constitute its Steering Committee. For more information see http://www.mostcooperation.com.
