Designing an analog front-end (AFE) for a power-line modem can be very challenging. Using the AFE031 simplifies this task and allows the designer to focus on the critical elements of the design, such as the line coupling interface, circuit protection, and printed circuit board (PCB) thermal design. This report uses the AFE031 to demonstrate an effective method of designing and testing an AFE for a power-line communications modem.
