Cogency Semiconductor was acquired by Intellon on 29 Nov 2004.
Cogency Semiconductor specializes in high performance semiconductors for the rapidly growing home networking market. In fact, the overall market for home networking products is predicted to grow to US $3-billion by 2004.
Cogency semiconductors are the key to creating home networks, which allow two or more digital devices to share printers, files, music and single high speed internet connection. Cogency's flagship integrated circuit makes use of existing in-home electrical wires for transmitting digital data at high speed. When consumer products are manufactured with the Cogency powerline chip, every electrical outlet in a home is turned into a network port. No additional wires are required.
Cogency's OFDM-based integrated circuits are compatible with the HomePlug Powerline specification, the industry standard for powerline home networking. Cogency is a key member of the HomePlug Powerline Alliance and contributes both resources and intellectual property to advance the emerging standard.
