Intel Corp, which launched its Home Networks division back in February, yesterday announced that it had licensed Tut Systems Inc’s HomeRun home networking software, along with the first samples of a single chip controller, the Intel 21145 Phoneline/Ethernet LAN controller, which will incorporate the Tut software. National Semiconductor Corp also announced that it would be licensing the Tut software. HomeRun enables the creation of a standard Ethernet network on home phone wires. Advanced Micro Devices Inc already has a license, and Tut’s backers include Microsoft Corp and AT&T Corp. Intel and Tut are both founder members of the Home Phone Networking Alliance, along with 3Com Corp, Compaq Computer Corp, Hewlett-Packard Co, IBM Corp, Lucent Technologies Inc and others. NatSemi will use the technology for its own single-chip Ethernet transceiver for home networking.
