MegaChips Launches Fully Compliant IEEE 1901 HD-PLC Chip with “Multi-hopping” Capability and Joins LonMark International AHR Expo Booth# C1068
Single-Chip Broadband PLC Enables Critical Functions in the Most Cost-effective Way for New Smart City IoT Applications
Las Vegas, NV – January 30, 2017 – Today at the AHR Expo, MegaChips introduced the MLKHN1501, a single-chip, fully-compliant IEEE 1901 HD-PLC (Power Line Communications) product that supports multi-hopping, enabling communication over the long distances required for many industrial and commercial applications. MLKHN1501 delivers bi-directional, IP-based, high-speed communication over AC/DC power lines, COAX and twisted pair wiring for Internet-of-Things (IoT) communication.
MegaChips’ MLKHN1501 is designed specifically to address the growing flow of IoT generated information through the cloud, which translates into higher bandwidth, more robustness, wider geographical coverage, and the ability to support a larger network of intelligent nodes. MLKHN1501 also addresses the need for highly secure networks and lower system cost. All these benefits are essential in networks for large Smart City applications such as smart grids, building automation, street/public lighting, smart homes, and public or private security/surveillance.
“Today, low-speed communication technologies are commonly used in the IoT and automation markets, and many believe low-bit rate communication is good enough to communicate sensor data,” said Michael Navid, VP Marketing and Business Development at MegaChips. “However, as the networks are getting bigger and more complex, and as the flow of information through the cloud for IoT increases while security concerns grow, the need for higher bandwidth communication becomes essential. That’s why we think broadband PLC is the right technology for the future of IoT.”
MegaChips recently joined the LonMark International global membership organization that was created to promote and advance the business of efficient and effective integration of open, multi-vendor control systems utilizing ISO/IEC 14908-1 and related standards. MegaChips is actively working with other LonMark members to port this popular protocol to its hardware and will be demonstrating its new broadband technology at the AHR Expo, the Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition, in the Las Vegas Convention Center at the LonMark International booth C1068 and will speak at one of LonMark’s educational sessions – LonMark Briefing: New LonTalk-IP Standard and LonMark Web Services.
