ATPL250A is a G3-PLC modem for Power Line Communication. G3- PLC is an open standard technology supported by internationally recognized standards bodies and promoted by the G3-PLC Alliance. Representatives from the Smart Grid ecosystem such as leading utilities, meter manufacturers, system integrators, IT vendors, automotive companies and silicon providers constitute the G3-PLC Alliance.
ATPL250A flexible architecture, composed of hardware accelerators and coprocessors, achieves a very efficient G3 PHY layer implementation. ATPL250A supports G3-PLC CENELEC, ARIB and FCC profiles, and represents a compact and high-efficient device for a wide range of Smart Grid applications such as Smart Metering (Smart Meters and Data Concentrators), Lighting, Industrial/Home Automation, Home and Building Energy Management Systems, Solar Energy and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) Charging Stations. ATPL250A has been conceived to be bundled with an external Microchip ?? MCU. Microchip provides a G3 PHY layer library which is used by the external MCU to take control of ATPL250A PHY layer device.
The ATPL250A-EK is a hardware platform for evaluating the ATPL250A modem for G3 power line communication. The kit provides easy access to the features of the ATPL250A and explains how to integrate the device in a custom design.
The ATSAM4CP16C-EK is a hardware platform for evaluating the SAM4CP16C System-on-Chip for G3 power line communication. The kit provides easy access to the features of the SAM4CP16C and explains how to integrate the device in a custom design.
