STMicroelectronics has pushed out the door its ST2100 STreamPlug SoC aimed at smart-home and smart-energy applications. According to the company, the device is powering a line of intelligent products developed jointly by ST and Tatung, an electronics company for smart home solutions.

ST stated that the ST2100 STreamPlug combines a high-performance processing sub-system with powerline communication (PLC), security and peripheral features to support hybrid networks using popular wired and wireless standards. The ST2100 is designed to support IEEE 1905.1 that enables customers to converge Ethernet, WiFi and other networking standards in new gateway or hub designs. The ST2100 StreamPlug supports popular PLC protocols such as HomePlug AV and HomePlug Green PHY, as well as IEEE 1901 Broadband Powerline connectivity, added ST.

ST's collaboration with Tatung leveraging the ST2100 STreamPlug SoC has yielded innovations such as Tatung's Gateway One home networking hub and other smart-energy devices. The Gateway One enables users to setup multi-bearer home networks combining Ethernet, WLAN, PLC and multimedia devices, greatly enhancing opportunities to improve energy efficiency, security, comfort and convenience throughout the home. Tatung's Meter Bridge and Home-Area Network (HAN) Bridge enable multi-occupancy dwellings to benefit from smart-energy applications, while solving consumption and billing challenges. The M1i and M3 are intelligent devices that provide energy management as well as network connectivity for devices plugged into the AC line. The M1i is optimised for industrial applications, while the M3 is featured for domestic use including charging plug-in electric vehicles.

The STreamPlug ST2100 is available for selected customers, in a 12 x 12mm TFBGA 373 BGA package.
