Paper Abstract

Achieving reliable, 100 kbps powerline communications on the low voltage, AC powerlines has been realized by combining new techniques in spread spectrum technology with a robust, powerline specific protocol. This approach enables reliable, high speed data networking on the electrically hostile, low voltage powerline. Applications for the new technology include utility DA/DSM (distribution automation/demand side management), intraoffice LANs, powerline based telephony, and industrial data networking applications. This technological advancement was made possible through statistical modeling of the low voltage powerline, and developing unique spread spectrum and protocol techniques specific to the resulting powerline environment. The technology has been implemented as a highly integrated, CMOS chip set, allowing straightforward integration into OEM systems and products.
