Las Vegas, NV–Bringing the future of home entertainment to the floor of the Consumer Electronics Show, Design of Systems on Silicon (DS2) showcased its award-winning 200 Mbps powerline communications (PLC) technology with a live networking demo.
Designed to show the power of PLC today, the DS2 “home” uses the powerline network to transmit bandwidth-intensive applications, such as IPTV, video on demand (VOD), HDTV, and VoIP to everyday consumer electronics appliances. Additionally, Samsung, AMD, Corinex and ST&T featured DS2 technology in their home networking displays.
“DS2 is the first company to deliver on the promise of PLC, and our demonstration at CES proves that our technology transmits high-quality entertainment content over existing home wiring systems today,” said Jorge Blasco, president and CEO, DS2. “Many consumer electronics manufacturers in several parts of the world are already testing and installing our technology because PLC solves many of the problems that plague other home networking solutions, such as quality-of-service or bandwidth requirements.”
Visitors to the DS2 booth viewed content from VOD streams, two HDTV channels, two VoIP terminals and four standard TV channels, all running simultaneously over the same PLC network with high QoS levels. A full range of DSS9XXX-based chips will power PLC applications on consumer electronics devices from Acbel, AMD, Ascom, Corinex , Digital Deck, Elcon, Espial, Mitsubishi, Pace, Samsung, Schneider Electric, Sumitomo, Suniwell, ST&T, and Toyocom.
