National Semiconductor is preparing for an explosion in home networking by licensing Tut Systems' HomeRun technology for use on its single-chip Ethernet physical layer transceiver solution. Financial details were not released. Tut's system is intended to use existing phone cabling in the home to run networks. Analysts estimate that in the next two years, 30 million US households will have multiple computers. According to Nat Semi, HomeRun technology will provide these users with a simple way of networking their computers, allowing them to share Internet access and peripherals without disrupting normal telephone lines. Nat Semi will be able to target two markets, home and Ethernet, with one solution. "The inclusion of this new technology is a major step in our strategy to support the dramatic increase in TCP/IP traffic, whether within the home, over the Internet, or private networks," said Robert Penn, senior VP of National's Communications and Consumer Group. The resulting product will be called PHYTER, and is scheduled for production in the first half of next year. It will be compliant with the specification for low-cost networking using existing telephone wiring, to be published this quarter. ®
