Greenvity Unveils Hybrii-XL GV7011 and Hybrii-PLC GV7012 System-on-Chip Devices

Greenvity Hybrii-XL GV7011 system-on-chip

Greenvity Communications launched their Hybrii system-on-chip family. The hybrid SoC integrates powerline communication (PLC) and wireless capabilities on a single chip. Hybrii devices currently include the Hybrii-XL chip for smart grid, smart energy management, industrial and consumer applications, and the Hybrii-PLC device for rugged, high temperature conditions. Samples and evaluation kits of the Hybrii-XL (GV7011) and Hybrii-PLC (GV7012) are available now.

The Greenvity Hybrii chip family supports both the HomePlug Green PHY PLC and ZigBee worldwide standards simultaneously. The single-chip solution enables designers to reduce costs and power consumption by using one chip and one board, rather than the traditional approach requiring multiple chips and boards to support both standards.

The Hybrii chip automatically chooses the best medium to transmit energy-related data wirelessly or via existing power lines. It extends the range to cover an entire home or building. If wireless nodes are noisy due to interference then PLC will be enabled and vice versa, ensuring reliable communication.
