â€œWe are excited to once again be able to showcase the flexibility of our ExtremeUSB technology. With the help of Panasonicâ€™s leading edge HD-PLC devices, we have been able to quickly implement our platform to extend USB 2.0 over standard power lines.â€ stated Robert Eisses, President and CEO of Icron Technologies. â€With power line technology poised to be a major catalyst for converged home network solutions, we are pleased to be working with Panasonic to add USB 2.0 to that pictureâ€.In case you are scratching your head about the HD-PLC technology, this explanation might help: Power Line Communication (PLC) is a technology that uses power lines to both supply electric power and transmit data. Electricity travels in large, slowly changing waves, while data signals move in small, quickly changing waves. Since these waves travel at different speeds, there is no mutual interference when they travel together. This makes it possible to send data signals through power lines, and access the Internet from power outlets. Original Panasonic HD technology uses this principle to provide the large data transmission capacity and high speed of the HD-PLC Ethernet Adaptor. Continue Reading
