PARIS, January 3, 2011 - SPiDCOM, the "no-limits" powerline communication silicon provider, will
display the reference designs based on its unique HomePlugAV certified open
platform. It will also demonstrate the first implementation of the Broadband
Forum's TR-069 model for HomePlugAV devices.

                                    CES 2011

                          Las Vegas - January 6th- 9th

                   LVCC South Hall Lower Level - Booth #20301

SPiDCOM, the fabless semiconductor company specializing in
open solutions for anywire broadband communications, enriches its suite of
HomePlugAV standard based reference designs. At CES 2011, it will present the
SPR300-AV and introduce the SPR310-AV.

Based on the HomePlugAV powerline communication specification
- now an IEEE 1901 standard -the SPR300-AV and SPR310-AV enable whole-home
HD-quality entertainment over the existing electrical wires.

While SPR300-AV is based on the SPC300 "No-limits" HomePlugAV
SoC, the SPR310-AV uses the SPC310 cost optimised package.

The SPR300-AV has a gigabit Ethernet port, a "pass-through"
design with a noise filter and an integrated socket; whereas the SPR310-AV
was designed to enable a specific Ethernet 100Mbps bridging at lower cost.

The SPR300-AV and SPR310-AV originality lies in their open
platform approach. Both reference designs embed an ARM9 processor integrated
inside the SoC. SPiDCOM provides source code of the Linux based firmware and
development tools so that its customers can run their own applications,
without having to add a costly external processor, resulting to BoM savings
up to 30%.

This openness enables OEM differentiation leading to more
sophisticated HomePlugAV end-products.

During CES 2011, SPiDCOM will show the world's first
implementation of the Broadband Forum's TR-069 model for HomePlugAV devices;
the TR-069 application running on the embedded ARM9.

Enabling remote management of the home network, SPiDCOM's
solutions lowers Service Provider's operational costs.
