Qualcomm Atheros Unveils Industrial-Grade HomePlug Green PHY Device

AMSTERDAM, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI) today announced that its networking and connectivity subsidiary, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., unveiled the industry's first industrial-grade HomePlug® Green PHY (HPGP) device, the QCA7000-AL3B. This latest product is one of the foundations in Qualcomm Atheros' expanding 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 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 unique environmental requirements, like the QCA7000 does for outdoor applications." The Qualcomm Atheros ecosystem includes devolo AG, a leading European company marketing PLC solutions; devolo is now taking orders for an advanced QCA7000-AL3B-based module. "The utility industry widely accepts HomePlug Green PHY powerline as a standard for connectivity," said Heiko Harbers, chief executive officer of devolo AG. "As our broad customer base seeks to enhance both residential and commercial environments for energy distribution and automation, we are pleased to offer Qualcomm Atheros' innovative solutions that meet a wide array of applications." Qualcomm Atheros, along with its ecosystem members, will be at Metering Europe in Amsterdam, October 9-11. Interested parties can visit the Qualcomm Atheros booth, B37, to view demonstrations of products and address questions with representatives.
