Oct. 6, 2008 - PRLog -- Beer Sheva, Israel – Yitran Communications Ltd. announces plans for its new generation 150Kbps  PLC (Powerline Communication) chip; IT900. The chip will be available from multiple sources, including a major semiconductor company that has licensed Yitran technology in the past. The chip will be down compatible to Yitran’s current IT800 and IT700, which are HomePlug Command and Control (C&C) ready.

Yitran’s leadership in PLC began with IT800 (7.5Kbps), which was selected by HomePlug as the baseline technology for the HomePlug C&C open standard. Yitran’s goal is to establish the new IT900 as an extension to HomePlug C&C standard as an open specification.

Earlier this month, Yitran announced that samples of its HomePlug C&C-ready IT700 PLC controller will be available at the end of 2008. IT700 features an extended 8051 MCU core for a high level of code efficiency and high speed operation. The microcontroller, transceiver and analog front end (AFE) are integrated into a plastic molded QFN56 package. IT700 complies with worldwide regulations (FCC, ARIB and CENELEC) and is fully back compatible with IT800.

Avner Matmor, CEO of Yitran, said, “We are pleased to announce the new IT900 chip, which was carefully designed to meet higher speed requirements for some applications. IT900 will be as robust as our IT800 and IT700 chips, but will allow a combination of lower and higher speed applications on the same network to meet different requirements within the Command and Control market for a very low cost.”

IT900 will feature a full protocol stack to meet the demands of AMR/AMM/AMI and Home/Building Automation. IT900 will provide nearly 20 times greater throughput than the IT800 series using Yitran’s highly robust DCSK modulation technology.
