Overview

Yitran Communication Ltd. provides low cost, innovative technology for superior performance and robustness. This is due to its DCSK (Differential Code Shift Keying) modulation technique, which provides extremely high communication reliability and Adaptive back-off algorithm. Thanks do these features, Yitran’s engineering team started to develop of one of its best known products, the IT700. This IC is a highly integrated System-on-a-Chip (SoC) Powerline Communication (PLC) that incor-porates extremely robust Physical Layer (PHY), high-performance Data Link Layer (DLL) and Network (Y-Net) protocol. But the core part wouldn’t be so effective without unique implementations invented in Digital Core Design’s laboratories. They‘ve been based on comprehensive combination of several complex solutions based on DP80390, MDU32, UART1, DSPI, DI2CM, Timer2CC and proprietary FLASH. What differs them from other competitors? In one word – everything. As an example, only DP80390’s efficiency significantly surpasses other solutions: it offers 8MB linear code and data space, when other IP vendors can offer only 64kB of linear memory. Digital Core Design masterminded ultimate highly integrated peripheral I2C, SPI, counters, UART and advanced arithmetic coprocessor. Basic difficulty was to compile proprietary FLASH circuit. DCD’s R&D department motto is: “impossible is nothing”, that’s why all difficulties were successfully fought down. But the final solution wouldn’t be possible without HAD2 kit profound modification and DoCDTM debug software adjustment & alteration. The DoCDTM provides some serviceable features, like a real-time and non-intrusive debug capability, enabling a pre-silicon validation and post-silicon, on chip software de-bugging. It also allows hardware breakpoints, trace, variables watch and multi C sources debugging. What’s important, the DoCDTM Debug Software can work as a hardware debugger, as well as a software simulator – some tasks can be validated at software simulation level and after this step, you can continue real-time debugging, by uploading code into silicon. These unique features, combined with profound and efficient cooperation between both engineering teams, enabled unique, time to market solution.

‘”We rely on DCD to give our customers the best service possible and they provide it with admirable consistency.”
