Luis, I think Green PHY is a HomePlug standard (wireline) and SmartEnergy 2.0 is a Zigbee standard (wireless)...so at medium level they are very different but I guess they are trying to accomplish the same, low power, which is also the goal of the remaining 99% of electronics ;-)...Kris

What’s the difference between SmartEnergy2.0 and Green PHY? Do these two standards address the same? Powerline communication must be good for certain cases in which wireless isn’t the best option. Anyway, looks like this market is emerging at the moment. We’ll soon see that every major refrigerator manufacturer and so will all include some kind of communication’s chip.
