Device Overview

Summary

ATPL230A is a power line communications base band modem, compliant with the PHY layer of PRIME (Power Line Intelligent Metering Evolution) specification. PRIME is an open standard technology used for Smart Grid applications like Smart Metering, Industrial Lighting and Automation, Home Automation, Street Lighting, Solar Energy and PHEV Charging Stations.

ATPL230A PRIME device includes enhanced features such as additional robust modes and frequency band extension. ATPL230A is able to operate in independently selectable transmission bands up to 472 kHz, achieving baud rates ranging from 5.4 kbps up to 128.6 kbps. ATPL230A has been conceived to be bundled with an external Microchip MCU or MPU. Microchip provides a PRIME PHY layer library which is used by the external MCU/MPU to take control of ATPL230A PHY layer device.
