Motorola Ventures Invests in Coppergate for HPNA Silicon

Motorola Ventures has made an equity investment in CopperGate Communications, a start-up based in Tel Aviv supplying chipset solutions for multimedia home networking. The investment was made as part of a $14.5M round led by new investor Carmel Ventures, with the participation of existing investors Tamir Fishman Ventures and the Challenge Fund. The funding round was first announced in November 2005.


  • CopperGate has been a prime contributor to the HPNA V3 specification for high performance multimedia home phoneline networking. HPNA V3 standard chipsets utilize existing coax cables and telephony wiring in the home for connecting devices such as residential gateways, TV set-top boxes, personal video recorders (PVRs) and PC peripherals.
