TI had decided to rejoin HomeGrid.
TI was a founding board member of HomeGrid, but quit after about a year--Intel can be a dick sometimes.
TI seems to have rejoined too see if their crappy DSPs might be useful for slow narrowband PLC. It seems that TI engineering group is as lazy as Intellon's--"you can have a any function in your you chips as long as it is DSP"--to paraphrase Henry Ford.
TI and credibility see to be mutually exclusive consents.
