Panasonic Corporation has begun licensing the HD-PLCTM 4 IP core required for the design of semiconductors with technologies and functions that comply with the IEEE 1901–2020 international standard. This IP core is the fourth generation of the HD-PLC series. Although conventionally HD-PLC have used power lines for transmission, this new series enables transmission through existing metal wires, such as control lines and coaxial cables as well as power lines, expanding its range of applications. This new HD-PLC technology also enables higher speeds, greater distance, and less wiring for wired communications.
