DCSK Turbo: The Next Generation in Powerline Communication (PLC) Extends Speed to 500Kbps
Yitran Communications Ltd. is pleased to announce the next generation in PLC ICs, DCSK Turbo (IT900), has exceeded its initial goal of 150Kbps to reach speeds of up to 500Kbps.
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.
Yitran currently offers the HomePlug C&C-ready IT700 PLC controller, which features an 8051 MCU core for a high level of code efficiency and high speed operation. IT700 complies with worldwide regulations (FCC, ARIB and CENELEC) and is fully interoperable with IT800. IT700 is currently being deployed in AMR, Smart Home, Smart Grid, Street Light Control, Solar Panel Control and Commercial Automation applications.
Avner Matmor, CEO of Yitran, said, “IT900 DCSK Turbo is as robust as our previous chips but with the added speed and flexibility to allow a combination of lower and higher speed applications on the same network to meet different requirements within the Smart Grid/Command and Control market.”
IT900 will be available from multiple sources, including a major semiconductor company that has licensed Yitran technology in the past.
