Intellon Corporation Announces First HomePlug AV based Powerline Communications Chipset with Extended Operating Temperature Range for Smart Grid Applications

-- Intellon's newest HomePlug AV based 200 Mbps INT6400 powerline chipset is now available in a -40C to +85C temperature range version.

Orlando, Fla., June 2, 2009 - Intellon Corporation (Nasdaq: ITLN), a leading provider of HomePlug®-compatible integrated circuits (ICs) for home networking, networked entertainment, Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) and smart grid applications, announces the addition of an industrial temperature range version of its newest HomePlug AV based powerline networking chipset, the INT6400. The extended operating temperature range from -40 degree Centigrade to +85 degree Centigrade allows the new ICs to be used in outdoor Smart Grid, industrial and other harsh environment applications such as electricity meters, electric vehicle charging stations, solar panel controls and outdoor monitoring devices, kiosks and security cameras.

"Reliable performance over these wider temperature extremes is an important requirement for the growing smart grid and other industrial applications served by our customer base," said Rick Furtney, president and COO of Intellon Corporation. "We're excited to offer our customers the performance of our latest HomePlug AV IC with the extended operating temperature range they need for these critical applications."

Intellon is the global sales leader in producing HomePlug compatible powerline communications ICs, with over 28 million shipped to date. Intellon's HomePlug-based ICs are used by over 45 service providers in Asia, Europe and the Americas for a variety of applications including Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), movies on demand and Internet and Wi-Fi extension. Intellon's ICs are also used in consumer products from leading manufacturers and available at major retailers.

Intellon's most advanced IC is the INT6400, which has the lowest power consumption of any 200 Mbps PHY-rate HomePlug AV class IC, meets European 2011 Code of Conduct requirements for adapters and delivers higher TCP throughput and more customer programmability options (such as programmable LEDs, push buttons and diagnostics), as well as improved Quality of Service (QoS), which is important for distribution of video around the home.

The industrial temperature INT6400 chipset includes the INT6400IKZ MAC/PHY transceiver and the INT1400IQZ AFE and Line Driver. These are the first HomePlug based powerline networking ICs available in industrial temperature range. Samples of products are available now.
