Oct 15, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., the networking and connectivity subsidiary of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., has unveiled an industrial-grade HomePlug Green PHY device, the QCA7000-AL3B.
This latest product is one of the foundations in Qualcomm Atheros' HomePlug Green PHY ecosystem of products and partner module companies supporting utilities, OEMs and other smart home and smart grid product designs. The QCA7000-AL3B is both hardware and software compatible with the previously launched QCA7000 and brings full industrial temperature support to the product line, serving outdoor applications, such as electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE), electric meters and solar panels, the company said.
According to the company, the QCA7000-AL3B is available in the market's smallest form factor (8x8 quad-flat no-leads package) and includes all the previously announced QCA7000 features; it is an extremely low power, fully integrated single chip solution delivered with advanced software and hardware support packages. The QCA7000-AL3B is available now in production volumes.
"The QCA7000-AL3B adds to our expanding portfolio of low-energy, standards-based communication solutions designed to connect the Internet of Everything," said Adam Lapede, senior director of product management at Qualcomm Atheros. "Qualcomm Atheros continues to build its broad portfolio of HomePlug Green PHY solutions that enable an ecosystem of ultra-low power, PLC-connected devices, which address environmental requirements, like the QCA7000 does for outdoor applications."
