INIC enables daisy-chain communications

INIC enables daisy-chain communications
Automotive manufacturers and tier one suppliers can incorporate Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) networks in a daisy-chain configuration in addition to a ring topology thanks to the newest MOST150 Intelligent Network Interface Controller (INIC) from Microchip Technology. With a daisy-chained network, a single cable segment is sufficient to connect two adjacent devices in the network, reducing cables and connectors for the back channel on each network connection.
