January 31, 2005 by Jeff Shepard

Texas Instruments Inc. (TI, Dallas, TX) and Mitsubishi Materials Corp. announced that Mitsubishi has selected TI's PurePath Digital™ technology for its latest power line communication (PLC) module. Leveraging TI's digital amplifier technology, MMC recently developed its PLC units to provide full digital streaming audio.

Mitsubishi Materials is using TI's TAS5001 PWM processor and TAS5122 power stage controller in its reference design to prevent any degradation of the linear pulse code modulation transmission. The TAS5001 and TAS5122 are both part of TI's PurePath Digital™ technology family of products. PurePath Digital technology complements other TI digital and analog products that support audio applications, such as digital signal processors, switch-mode power management, analog-input Class-D audio power amplifiers and audio converters.
