Semtech Certified Wih HomePlug

Camarillo-based Semtech, the developer of analog and mixed signal semiconductors, reported late Monday afternoon that it has certified one of its Systems-on-a-Chip platform with HomePlug interoperability tests. Semtech said its powerline communications SoC--the EV8000 Powerline Communications SoC platform--successfully completed HomePLug Alliance Netricity interoperability testing at an event in Paris.
