Texas Instruments Incorporated is the world leader in digital signal processing and analog technologies, the semiconductor engines of the Internet age.
TI is a leader in the real-time technologies that help people communicate. We are moving fast to drive the Internet age forward with semiconductor solutions for large markets such as wireless and broadband access and for new emerging markets such as digital cameras and digital audio.
TI envisions a world where every phone call, every Internet connection, every photograph you take, every song you listen to are touched by the power of TI's Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and Analog technologies.
That dream is coming true. TI is making it happen right now.
TMS320C2000™ digital signal controllers are an ideal platform for power line networked applications such as electricity metering, office lighting automation and factory automation because their performance of up to 150 MIPS, large onchip memory and integrated peripheral interfaces provide a single-chip solution for the PLC as well as additional control functions.
TI has developed a freely-available PLC software library and hardware reference design for data throughput speeds up to 5 kbps without crossing an isolation transformer (contact your local TI salesperson). For a higher speed and commercially-hardened system, we recommend our partners at Adaptive Networks, Inc. Adaptive Networks deploys systems that provide up to 100-kbps throughput and offer a range of several kilometers.
