Narrowband PLC Applications

  • AMR (Automated Meter Reading) & Energy Management
  • Command & Control
  • Security



Broadband PLC Applications

  • Home Entertainment
  • Home Networking
  • SOHO
  • xDSL / Cable Modem Extension
  • Internet Access / Mini-Access



The IT800 Series includes highly reliable Power Line Communication Command and Control ICs (up to 7.5Kbps).

  • IT800D - SoC (System on a Chip) device that incorporates IT800 PHY with a microprocessor that runs Yitran's DLL (Data Link Layer) firmware (stored on-chip). The IT800D provides all the benefits of Yitran's high performance DLL (Adaptive back-off CSMA/CA channel access, ACK/unACK services, retransmissions and more) on top the IT800 PHY. The IT800D is an ideal solution for a variety of products, where usage of the IT800D enables coexistence with other proprietary and standard solutions (based on Yitran"S IT800 PHY and DLL).

    The HomePlug Powerline Alliance, the leading open standards-based organisation for power line communication technologies supported by major semiconductor and electronic equipment manufacturers worldwide, has also chosen the IT800 technology as the baseline for its HomePlug Command and Control (HPCC) standard.

  • IT800SCP  - SoC device developed as the result of the collaboration between Microsoft and Yitran. It incorporates the IT800 PHY with a microprocessor that runs Yitran's DLL and Microsoft SCP (Simple Control Protocol) complete firmware stack (both stored on-chip).
