BACnet International Continues to Grow Membership with Addition of MegaChips
Semiconductor producer becomes latest Silver Member
Atlanta, GA – September 12, 2017—– The BACnet community is proud to announce that MegaChips has joined BACnet International as a Silver member. MegaChips PLC (Power Line Communication) products deliver bi-directional, IP based, high-speed communication over AC/DC power lines, COAX and twisted pair wiring where wider bandwidths, robustness, long-range, support for larger number of nodes, and highly secure network is required.
“We are proud to be part of the BACnet family, and to help advance the communications technology within the automation sectors,” said Michael Navid, vice president Marketing and Business Development of MegaChips. “Based on internationally accepted IEEE1901 standard, and our newly adopted BACnet stack, we allow our customers to develop products using existing network infrastructure/wiring, to meet today’s demanding information flow through the cloud without adding any new wiring, or having to transition to a new protocol, thus saving on the overall development, and installation costs.”
MegaChips joins more than 125 leading building automation suppliers as BACnet International members supporting promotion of BACnet as a global communications protocol.
“The major goal of BACnet International is to promote the successful use of the BACnet protocol in building automation”, stated Andy McMillan, president and managing director of BACnet International. “We welcome MegaChips to our continually growing membership. The company's commitment to producing BACnet-enabled products and furthering the growth of the BACnet protocol makes them an exciting addition to this association.”
