Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has joined the Universal Powerline Association (UPA), a nonprofit organization promoting global standards and regulations for the development of the powerline communications market.

"Cypress is a significant addition to the UPA, as it brings another established semiconductor provider to the table for this competitive power line communication technology," said Steve Rago, principal analyst for Networking and Optical Communications at iSuppli Corp. "We expect power line home networking to grow at a CAGR of 72 percent over the next several years."

As a member, Cypress will leverage its expertise in connectivity and high-definition video to promote the UPA's digital home standard (DHS) for high-speed networking over power lines. At present, this is the 'only' power line communication standard that produces silicon at 200Mbps.

"After a careful survey of the home networking technologies on the market, it was clear that the ubiquity of power lines make them the medium of choice to transport high-definition video data in the home," said Gopal Garg, managing director of video and interconnect products, Cypress. "The UPA's standard delivers the fastest, most reliable specifications for solutions that are shipping in volume. We look forward to advancing the adoption of this technology to take the home theater experience to the next level with high-definition video content over the home network."
