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.
