Power line communications dev kit

10 November 2010 Design Automation

Texas Instruments announced a new PLC (power line communications) development kit (TMDSPLCKIT-V2) based on a PLC modem solution capable of supporting multiple modulation and protocol standards on a single hardware platform. The new kit provides everything developers need to network systems and implement monitoring capabilities and other new services. Developers will be able to quickly evaluate the suitability of using PLC-based communications and then jumpstart development for Smart Grid applications ranging from smart electrical meters to intelligently controlled industrial applications, including lighting, solar, home automation, building control, plug-in electrical vehicle and energy-managed appliances.

TI’s PLC modem is a modular, fully programmable solution comprised of separate microcontroller (MCU) and analog front end (AFE) modules and a complete software framework designed for flexibility and adaptation to various application and regional requirements. The MCU module is based on TI’s proven real-time control C2000 architecture and offers elevated performance while interfacing with the AFE and application processors with which the PLC modem communicates.

TI also offers its comprehensive plcSUITE, a modular software framework separating modulation, protocol and application development for developers testing and designing with PLC modems.
