Bel Fuse now has available a set of transceiver modules that support HomePlug AV standards, for OEMs looking to build home networking equipment capable of supporting a variety of services, including high-definition video.

The company’s Powerline Communications (PLC) low-power modules integrate Intellon’s third-generation INT6400/INT1400 HomePlug AV chipset, along with the majority of components required for adding HomePlug AV functionality to any embedded consumer electronics or networking product. 

Bel Fuse’s modules cover more than enough spectrum to support SD and HD video, IPTV, VoIP, and backbone for Wi-Fi, UWB and wireless USB. They are equally appropriate in higher data rate broadband sharing, shared broadband Internet access, audio and video streaming, and file sharing applications, the company said.

Samples of Bel’s HomePlug AV PLC modules are available immediately.
