Power-Line Transceiver Accelerates Home Automation

EMBEDDED SYSTEMS CONFERENCE, San Jose, CA. – Promising to speed and simplify the deployment of user-friendly home automation products, the PL 3170 power-line smart transceiver supports the creation of networked home control products that install automatically when plugged into a wall outlet. This is said to eliminate the complexity and anxiety that consumers associate with home automation. The device combines power-line signaling technology with an applications processor and ISI software on a single chip. The transceiver also allows products to meet the CECED (European Committee of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances) Household Appliances Control and Monitoring – Application Interworking Specification (AIS) standard. The PL 3170 power-line smart transceiver will be available this summer. ECHELON CORP., San Jose, CA. (888) 324-3566.
