Control Solutions, Inc

(San Jose, CA) - Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON), the leading technology supplier for the widely-used LonWorks® control networking standard announced the first Echelon Worldwide Developers Conference geared towards expanding the pervasiveness of its market leading technology in control products and applications. The event will be held in San Jose, California on May 16–19, 2006, and will provide new and experienced LonWorks developers with in-depth technical information about Echelon’s latest technology advancements, including the recently announced Pyxos™ embedded control networking platform.

"We're very excited about the opportunity to share our control networking expertise with the LonWorks developer community," said Anders Axelsson, Echelon’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. "We hear repeatedly that our technology is simply the best available for open, interoperable control applications. This first developers conference is a chance to learn from the individuals who created the LonWorks platform – helping speed development efforts and bring better products to market by expanding the knowledge and skills of our developer base."

The new developers conference is part of Echelon's strategy of expanding the market for control networking through continual reductions in the cost and complexity of LonWorks technology while increasing the power and utility of the technology through new product development.

Highlights of the four-day developers conference include:

Pyxos Embedded Control Networking Platform
Developers will learn how to best implement the new self-organizing Pyxos platform into new or existing devices. Topics will cover overall architecture for Pyxos networks, circuit board design, integrating with host processors, LonWorks connectivity, transformer design and others integral to creating Pyxos based machines and automation applications.

i.LON® 100 e3 Internet Server
A flexible, cost-effective way to remotely monitor and control devices, the new i.LON 100 e3 includes i.LON Vision, a rich set of web authoring tools. Developers will create custom web pages using Macromedia Contribute, programmable applications development, secure downloading and libraries, and learn how to eliminate gateway based controls such as BACnet and other legacy systems through web binding, optimized tunneling, and GSM/GPRS wireless design.

contemporary Smart Transceivers
Developers will learn how to design devices using Echelon's Power Line and Twisted Pair Smart Transceivers. Sessions will focus on utilizing reference designs to fast track product development, implementing the Interoperable Self-Installation application layer protocol for creating self-installing networks, circuit board layout and design, design for harsh electrical environments, and more.
