Greenvity Communications is partnering with Mitsumi Electric to provide modules and systems for electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids, battery-charging systems, smart meters and smart energy management systems.

The products will leverage Greenvity's Hybrii system-on-chips (SoCs) that integrate HomePlug Green PHY power line communications and ZigBee wireless technologies into a single chip. The two companies say they will collaborate in the development of Mitsumi's DRT-A600 and DRT-A520 modules, as well as systems and software, enabling robust and intelligent connectivity for a variety of home and building energy management and electric-vehicle applications. The DRT-A600 and DRT-A520 modules will be powered by Greenvity’s Hybrii-XL GV7011 and Hybrii-PLC GV7012 single-chip solutions, respectively.

These modules, which Mitsumi is aiming to release in the first half of 2013, will be designed to meet consumers’ increasing acceptance of smart energy management solutions such as emerging intelligent home gateways and home area networks, as well as support worldwide growth in electric and hybrid plug-in vehicle sales and EV charging, the companies add.

In addition to collaborating on technology development, Mitsumi has made an undisclosed direct investment in Greenvity, signifying a long-term partnership.
