Intellon Corporation (Nasdaq: ITLN) designs and sells integrated circuits (ICs) for powerline communications, providing HomePlugÂ® - compliant and other powerline ICs for home networking, networked entertainment, commercial and Smart Grid applications.
Intellon is a leader in powerline communications technology. Intellon developed and patented the baseline technology behind the initial standard adopted by the HomePlug Powerline Alliance, a global industry group formed to create and promote standards for powerline communications. In 2001, Intellon introduced the first HomePlug-based IC, and has since developed several new generations of HomePlug-based ICs. In 2006, Intellon introduced the first HomePlug AV-based IC, which can deliver the quality of service required to support reliable, uninterrupted distribution of standard- and high-definition video among personal computers and consumer electronics products.
