Communications Products

Accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things.

Our communications ICs are designed to enable reliable and easy communications for industrial devices and networks. Our ICs enable OEMs to quickly develop robust and innovative IIoT solutions that meet the unique requirements of the industrial IoT, such as industrial-strength reliability and scalability. Our solutions include customer programmable, highly integrated transceiver SoCs for Free Topology (FT) networks over a single twisted pair and Power Line Communications (PLC).

For decades our LonWorks platform has been powering industrial control applications, providing the highest level of reliability and flexibility in network topology, while our PLC modems provide an unprecedented level of flexibility and a wide range of standards-based and proprietary communication schemes uniquely optimized for the diverse needs of IIoT applications.

Semiconductors for Edge Devices

Our chips are embedded in IIoT devices such as sensors, load controllers, lighting drivers, elevators, railways, smart meters, battery chargers, industrial and agricultural equipment and many others to enable applications such as smart grid, building automation and Industry 4.0. These individual devices are managed by edge products such as our SmartServer™ IoT edge server. Documentation for legacy products is archived here.


Free Topology Transceivers

Our open, multi-protocol smart transceivers are systems on chips (SoCs) built on a fast Neuron core processor. They include protocol stacks for popular industrial field device communications including LON (all models) and BACnet (FT 6050). These chips are part of Adesto’s IzoT™ platform — the most comprehensive and open control networking platform for the industrial IoT.

Power Line Communications

Our Power Line Communications products – proven over multiple generations – have superior performance in providing reliable communication over power lines in rough channel conditions, using a variety of communication schemes ranging from LonWorks to OFDM-based modes such as PRIME, G3-PLC, PLC4TRUCKS, as well as proprietary modes for improved noise immunity and data rates. The devices are also simple to manage as point to point or mesh networks.

Router Chips

Our specialized IP routers provide out-of-the-box routing for LON and BACnet FT networks. They are ideal for use in process control, building automation, energy management, transportation systems control and telecommunications equipment management.

LON Controllers

The Neuron line incorporates communication and control functions on a single chip, in both hardware and firmware, to facilitate the design of a LonWorks device. Neuron processors can interface with a wide variety of media transceivers — including twisted pair, RF, IR, fiber-optics, and coaxial — at a wide range of data rates.

Development Kits

Development kits are tools that enable you to develop smart devices for today’s industrial IoT.
