Microchip Technology recently announced a new high-speed network solution for in-vehicle infotainment with device control over Internet Protocol (IP). Unified Centralized Software Stack (UNICENS) is a free software module for anyone using Intelligent Network Interface Controllers (INIC), such as the OS81118, OS81119, and any future INICs. It enables you to focus on application development rather than network management.
With UNICENS, you can choose your preferred device control method including Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) technology’s FBlock, Ethernet IP and customer-specific methods. It also supports the configuration and control of all network participants from one central node. Furthermore, you don’t need microcontrollers in all the other nodes in the network. UNICENS is currently available as open-source software for Microchip customers.
