BlueChip HD-PLC Power Line Communication Transceiver Solutions

MegaChips' single-chip, low-power, IEEE 1901 compliant broadband PLC transceivers/processor for industrial applications

Image of MegaChips' BlueChip HD-PLC SoCsMegaChips' BlueChip HD-PLC solutions are built for speed and range. They employ the latest broadband technologies to reliably deliver high-speed, bidirectional, IP-based communications over AC and DC powerlines, coax, and twisted-pair. HD-PLC is an international standard based on IEEE 1901 and ITU-T G.9905 for high-speed powerline communication (BPL). It uniquely combines a high-frequency range (2 MHz to 28 MHz) with wavelet-based OFDM modulation to achieve PHY speeds up to 240 Mbps over any wiring (AC/DC power lines, powered and unpowered twisted pair, coax, phone lines and more). Customers will enjoy more bandwidth, more security, and more simplicity. They will also appreciate the advantage it gives them over other wired technologies, such as Ethernet or RS485.
