Intellon Corp. has acquired the engineering team and intellectual property of Toronto-based Cogency Semiconductor Inc., a competing developer of powerline ICs.

As a result of the transaction, 18 Cogency employees, mostly engineers, will be joining a new Intellon office in Toronto. Additional employees will be added to the Toronto office, as well as Intellon's offices in Ocala, Florida and San Jose, California, during 2004. The Cogency and Intellon engineers will work as a fully integrated team, with project leadership from both sides of the border. Cogency President and Chief Executive Officer Ron Glibbery, will become president of Intellon and Keith Riley, Cogency's VP of Engineering will assume the same title with Intellon.

Intellon's next-generation PowerAV chipsets is expected to support transmission speeds well in excess of 100Mbps, allowing transmission of multiple audio, standard-definition video and HDTV video streams over powerlines, with better bandwidth, coverage and reliability than existing wireless technologies. Intellon's PowerAV technology has been selected to be part of the baseline technology for the HomePlugAV specification being developed by the HomePlug Powerline Alliance Inc.
