ZENO (MAX79356) is a programmable narrowband orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM)-based powerline communication (PLC) modem system-on-chip (SoC) device that provides standards compliant high performance and secured powerline communication in a small package. ZENO integrates two pipelined 32-bit RISC (MAXQ®30E) processors to offer high performance and future-proof flexibility. These two 32-bit RISC processors perform dedicated PHY signal processing functions and MAC layer functionality. Maxim provided, certified firmware images allow faster time to market. Factory or infield firmware update feature allows adoption of changes and updates in PLC communication standards. The integrated high-speed AES-CCM* engine ensures standards compliant data communication security and integrity.
