In-Home and SOHO Networking through the mains network

Objective

The INSONET project proposes an innovative technology enabling high-speed data rates over low-voltage residential power lines for in-home and SOHO networking applications, established through:
- A mixed-mode ASIC in 0.35 micron CMOS technology embedding both:
1. a powerful Baseband Processor based on OFDM/16QAM advanced modulation technique and incorporating concatenated encoding / decoding system to reach an overall efficiency close to 4 bits/s/Hz
2. a complex I/Q Analog Front-End of high performances
- A Protocol Processor software package implementing high-speed power line MAC layer and bridging to other existing networks, such as Ethernet and USB, in a transparent way.
