HomePlug AV Chip Vendors--and now there are three

According to the HomePlug website, it seems that the sometimes stealthy SPiDCOM Technologies has quietly received HomePlug AV certification for their SPC300 SoC implementation of HomePlug AV.

If confirmed, SPiDCOM would be the third HomePlug AV chip vendor after Atheros and Gigle. HAN Fan is looking forward to the price war that will come from the competition of multi-sourced standards based products.

  2. Actually, it turned out to by Gigle...
