Upgrade your wireline network with faster, more secure communications.


Two Options. Speed and Range.

MegaChips’ BlueChip HD-PLC solutions are built for speed and range. They employ the latest broadband technologies to reliably deliver high-speed, bidirectional, IP-based communications over AC and DC powerlines, coax, and twisted-pair.

Designers of large, industrial IoT networks will benefit from HD-PLC with “Multi-hop.” This innovative technology enables any node to act as a repeater, dramatically increasing communications robustness and range. With Multi-hop, users enjoy data rates above 10Mbps over several kilometers of cables.

For even faster speeds, system designers should use HD-PLC “Complete.” This product line strips out Multi-hop functionality to give you the fastest HD-PLC communication possible. Capable of delivering high-definition video, Internet, and other large streams of data, HD-PLC complete is perfect for your bandwidth-hungry applications.

Smart Features Enable Smarter Devices

  • Data rate up to 240Mbps (PHY) enables smarter applications
  • Multihop capability supports up to 1024 nodes and 10km range
  • Free topology simplifies network design and deployment
  • AES-128 encryption secures each node in the network
  • Ethernet and serial bridging simplifies integration of devices and networks
  • Low power consumption reduces total energy footprint
