Tamar ASIC announcement
Mobix announces its new ASIC – “TamarTM” developed to address the requirement of the world-wide AMI market.
MobixChip, a subsidiary of Mobix Wireless Solutions, is excited and proud to announce the implementation of our patented AMI, n-DNet™ technology, on a new single dedicated ASIC named Tamar™.
Tamar™ is a multi-protocol SOC (System on Chip), which enables robust hybrid-mesh network communications for Advanced Metering Infrastructure applications.
Tamar™ ASIC implements Mobix’s patented n-Dnet™ technology, a highly reliable, field proven, cost-effective, 2-way dual PLC and RF mesh network giving our customers unparalleled performance.
Tamar™ will change the industry by fusing both PLC and RF capabilities into a single, hybrid and unified network on a single ASIC. Embedding the n-DNet™ technology in an ASIC offers the AMI market significant additional advantages:
• Cost reduction (replacing 3 ICs, foot print, ease of integration)
• Performance (Silicon level synchronization, low power consumption, higher throughput )
• Security (Complete AMI data protection)
• Interoperability (3 RF standards and 4 PLC standards)
Tamar™ will be available in the first quarter of 2013
“This major metering event in Amsterdam is the best opportunity for Mobix to announce our new AMI ASIC - TamarTM and introduce its best-in-class features to customers and partners from all over the world.
We look forward to expand our engagements with early-stage design partners using our FPGA-based reference design to ensure their designs will be the first to reach the market with Mobix's patented n-DNet hybrid technology, when the 1st TamarTM engineering samples arrive in 3-4 months' time..” As quoted from the Chaiman & CEO of Mobix Group – Itzhak (Shai) Hemli
