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.

SENSORS MIDWEST

Sensors Midwest Hits Rosemont, IL October 16-17!

Sensors Midwest, the industry's largest event focusing on sensors, design, and IIoT in the Midwest region, is scheduled for October 16-17 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Co-located with STMA, the event draws over 1,000 engineers and engineering professionals that are looking for access to the latest sensor advancements and will provide an opportunity to connect with the area's greatest technology leaders and suppliers.

 

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.
