Homeplug AV Module Does 200 Mbits/s Over Powerlines

Bell Fuse has delivered its Powerline Communications (PLC) transceiver modules based on Intellon’s INT 6400. It’s designed to deliver data, voice, and video over powerlines at speeds up to 200 Mbits/s based on the HomePlug AV standard. The session initiation protocol (SIP) module supports 1024/256/64/16/8QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation), quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK), binary phase-shift keying (BPSK), and remote office/branch office (ROBO) modulation schemes. It also features a media access controller (MAC), physical layer (PHY), and 128-bit AES encryption. The system uses advanced turbo code forward error correction as well. It requires 830 mA at 3.3 V.
