PANCOORDINATOR Evaluation Kit

Part Number: ATPANCOORDINATOR-EK

Summary:

The ATPANCOORDINATOR-EK comprises one ATPL250ABN board and three couplings (for CEN-A, ARIB and FCC frequency bands), allowing evaluation of point to point Power Line Communications performance.

It implements an Atmel® Cortex™-M7 device acting as MCU host, combined with ATPL250A modem for PLC (Power Line Communication). ATPL250A is a power line communications base band
