Maxim understands the need for cooperative relationships in the development of world-class technologies. We believe that by developing these relationships, it gives us a unique view into the design challenges faced by our customers, and in turn, allows us to offer solutions to help them meet their goals.
Maxim is expanding our partners program to bring a higher level of PLC support to our customers. We have added Catron Inc and YESTUNED, Catron's distribution partner in China, as our development partners. Together, Catron and YESTUNED have 20 years of industrial powerline communication (PLC) experience. Their designs are based on Maxim's MAX2990
PLC narrow band OFDM technology, delivering high performance in harsh environments. Their modems can operate from -40°C to +75°C, in 95% relative humidity with no fan required.
Catron and YESTUNED custom design solutions and engineering services are practical for utility communication, industrial automation, processing control, lighting control, and other applications requiring powerline communications.
