First HD-PLC SoC for LON Unleashed

At Light+Building in Frankfurt, Germany, MegaChips will demonstrate its HD-PLC solution running Easylon for smart city and building applications. Easylon developed by Gesytec is fully compliant and interoperable with LonWorks. Adopted by LonMark as the new standard for high-speed wireline networks, HD-PLC brings megabit speeds—along with dramatic cost savings—to large, multi-node networks using any wire (AC/DC powerlines, twisted-pair, coax, phone lines, etc.).

 

HD-PLC addresses the growing bandwidth demands of modern control networks. Based on the IEEE 1901 and ITU-T G.9905 international standards, HD-PLC combines broadband communication with an innovative multi-hop technology to achieve megabit speeds over several kilometers of cabling. It supports up to 1024 nodes in any network configuration, giving system integrators all the benefits of a free topology that they enjoy with other LonWorks channels. Additionally, HD-PLC offers features such as mesh networking, dynamic traffic routing, and a network bridging functionality that make system integration easy.

EMBEDDED TECHNOLOGIES EXPO & CONFERENCE

The inaugural event will take place June 25-27 in San Jose, CA!

Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference (ETC), in the largest embedded and IoT market in North America, is the ONLY event focused on what is most important to designers and implementers – education and training. Attendees will experience over 100 hours of unparalleled education and training covering embedded systems, IoT, connectivity, edge computing, AI, machine learning, and more. Co-located with Sensors Expo & Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to see hundreds of leading exhibitors and network with thousands of industry peers and innovators.

 

The MegaChips BlueChip HD-PLC SoC (MLKHN1501) is allegedly the world's first fully compliant HD-PLC SoC with multi-hop technology. It combines a state-of-the-art AFE with baseband, PHY, MAC layers and SDRAM into a compact package to deliver fast, bidirectional, IP-based communication over any wire. A full suite of development resources is available to enable system designers to quickly upgrade to HD-PLC.
