Semiconductors for DC and AC Power Line Communication Networks
Yamar developed unique power-line communication transceivers.
The power line communication DCBUS semiconductor devices (ICs) are used for saving wires by communicating over the existing power lines to establish multiplex networks and provide reliable communication over extremely noisy wires. Every module has to be connected to a power source for its operating energy, these lines are used also for data transfer. The technology replaces traditional costly copper harness, saving weight, size, space and increase the system reliability. The devices were designed to interface directly with automotive, aerospace and industrial protocols such as CAN bus, UART, LIN bus and SPI. This makes them simple to operate as no additional protocol layer is required.
The SIG60 devices are used in more than 50 countries.
The SIG60 devices gain popularity by customers in more then 50 countries. Its simple to operate UART interface and its robust communication, provides reliable network communication even over noisy power lines. Customers can use the UART / LIN protocol, or tailor their own protocol, according to their specific application. This simplicity was proven by multiple applications in many fields.
- Save wires.
- Lighter cables weight.
- Reduce cost.
- Increase vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
- Increase reliability.
- Simple to use (UART).
- Decrease installation time.
