The PL485 is a fully programmable Power Line Communication (PLC) System On Chip (SOC). It is able to run any narrowband-PLC (NB-PLC) protocol in the frequency band up to 500 kHz. By means of selecting the proper firmware, the PL485 is able to support applications requiring basic connectivity (point to point, star) or complex PLC networks (mesh topologies with routing).
Microchip provides firmware examples for basic PLC connectivity, as well as implementations of state-of-the-art PLCprotocols such as ITU-T G.9903 (G3-PLC®) and ITU-T G.9904 (PRIME®). The PL485 is a future-proof SOC able to support the evolution of the implemented NB-PLC standards.
PL485-EK is an evaluation kit for the PL485, a programmable System On Chip (SOC) for narrow-band Power Line Communication (PLC) from Microchip. PL485 is a highly integrated PLC device which requires reduced PCB area and simplifies the design layout.
PL485-EK has been designed to be directly connected to low-voltage DC power rails covering the frequency range 95 .. 125kHz, as an...
