The PL360B is a programmable modem for narrow-band Power Line Communication (PLC), able to run any PLC protocol in the frequency band below 500 kHz.
This device has been designed to comply with FCC, ARIB, KN60 and CENELEC EN50065 regulations matching requirements of Internet of Things and Smart Energy applications. It supports state-of-the-art narrow-band PLC standards such as ITU G.9903 (G3-PLC®), ITU G.9904 (PRIME) as well as any other narrowband PLC protocols, being at the same time a future-proof platform able to support the evolution of these standards.
The PL360B has been conceived to be driven by external Microchip host devices, thus providing an additional level of flexibility on the host side. The Microchip host device loads the proper PLC-protocol firmware before modem operation and controls the PL360 modem.
