Single chip combines powerline and wireless communications for the first time for smart energy management and electric vehicles
August 07, 2012 // Nick Flaherty
Greenvity Communications has developed the first hybrid system-on-chip (SoC) family that integrates powerline communication (PLC) and wireless capabilities on a single chip.
Hybrii-XL makes smart grid products possible that for the first time integrate both PLC and ZigBee communication capabilities. The single-chip solution allows customers to reduce costs and power consumption by using one chip and one board, rather than the traditional approach requiring multiple chips and boards to support both standards.
When the Hybrii chip is deployed in an energy-efficient appliance, consumers are assured reliable, robust communication as well as ease of use. They dont have to worry about which standard an appliance supports and can place the appliance anywhere in their house without worrying about wireless reception issues or multi-phase issues related to power lines. The Hybrii chip automatically chooses the best medium to transmit energy-related datawirelessly or via existing power linesand extends the range to cover an entire home or building. If wireless nodes are noisy due to interference then PLC will be enabled and vice versa, ensuring reliable communication. All news
