Wired Communication Modules


G.hn Wired Communication Module MOD958 - Wireline IoT Connectivity Communication                               Powerline Communication Module (PLC Module) MOD923 - Wireline IoT Connectivity Communication

Technology Overview

Xingtera offers a complete portfolio of wired communication modules, wired connectivity modules, wired IoT modules, G.hn modules, power-line communication modules (PLC modules), Ethernet over coax modules (EoC modules), and Ethernet over twisted pair modules. The PHY rate ranges from 20Mbps up to 2Gbps, and the system supports up to 1,000 nodes in a single mesh network.

Based on Xingtera’s G.hn and wireline communication chipset portfolio, these wireline communication modules can offer reliable and high-speed multi-node networks without the need for new cable installation. Wired or wireline communication technologies can play an important role in commercial, industrial, or IoT applications, especially when wireless communication cannot be used, or as a complement to wireless networks.

MOD930 100Mbps 1,000 32x32mm Ethernet/Serial/GPIO Industrial IoT and connectivity 
MOD920 200Mbps 16 38x38mm Ethernet/GPIO Surveillance camera (embedded)
MOD923 200Mbps 16 25x65mm Ethernet/Serial/GPIO Ethernet over coax / twisted pair
MOD957 1,000Mbps 8 25x45mm Ethernet High-speed home network
MOD958 2,000Mbps 8 25x45mm Ethernet High-speed Internet access

Ultra-High-Performance Wired Communication Modules

For ultra-high-performance power-line communication (PLC) or Ethernet over coax/twisted-pair (EoC/EoTP) applications, the G.hn series modules MOD957 and MOD958 are recommended. Both modules are fully ITU-T G.hn standards compliant, and support mesh topology with plug and play functions. The maximum PHY rate is 2Gbps, and the maximum throughput exceeds 1.7Gbps. Therefore these modules can enable ultra high-speed applications such as 4K video streaming, virtual reality, home networking, or access networking.

High-Performance Wired Communication Modules

For high-performance Ethernet over coax/twisted-pair (EoC/EoTP) applications, especially security surveillance camera networking requirements, MOD920 and MOD923 are recommended. These modules support up to 200 Mbps PHY rate, and up to 100Mbps uni-directional throughput. MOD923 has been applied in IP camera upgraded projects worldwide, while MOD920 (38x38mm) can be easily integrated into surveillance cameras so that IP cameras can be directly connected using existing coax cables.

PLC and Wired IoT Modules

For power-line communication (PLC) applications involving hundreds of nodes, MOD927 and MOD930 are recommended. MOD927 has a maximum PHY rate of 20Mbps, and support aggregate data rate in the range of 10Mbps. MOD930 has a maximum PHY rate of 100Mbps, and support aggregate data rate in the range of 40Mbps. They can be deployed for large scale IP-based mesh networks based only on existing wires including DC or AC power-line, serial cables, or twisted pair. Applications such as building automation networks, or mining voice communication networks, can all benefit from these modules by reusing existing power-line or other cables. 

Module Customization

We are also able to customize G.hn modules, wired or wireline communication modules, or power-line communication (PLC) modules according to your requirements. If you have unique requirements that our current offering of modules cannot meet completely, we may also help you to design a new module according to your specifications.
