Is a fabless IC company developing a new generation of powerline communications chip specifically aimed at the Home Energy Management market.

Xsilon's chip allows the energy consumed by an individual appliance to be measured and signalled back to a home energy controller or smart meter. The appliance can also be remotely turned on or off thereby enabling sychronisation of demand with supply and load shedding from peak times. Xsilon's unique core technology is an ultra long range, low power, low cost, physically small powerline system that is the result of many years' research.
