Description

The importance of on-time response and monitoring in Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and distribution automation networks increases demands on reliable communications.  Standards-based communications are becoming a requirement in most smart grid deployments as service operators and regulators take advantage of interoperability.  This TI Design addresses these issues by implementing a solution with standard-based Wireless M-Bus and G3-PLC Power Line Communication (PLC). This design can help improve network performance, reliability, capacity, and scalability. The CC13xx wireless MCU acts as both the RF protocol processor and the host for the PLC processor, resulting in additional cost-saving for the system design. This design is based on wireless M-Bus RF solution with G3-PLC and, to see TI proprietary RF solution-based version, view the Hybrid RF and PLC Reference Design.

Features
  • Improve network reliability via simultaneous transmission over Wireless M-Bus and PLC networks.
  • Improve network capacity via spatial multiplexing by utilizing the Wireless M-Bus and PLC networks to simultaneously transmit independent data.
  • Improve network scalability by acting as a bridge between Wireless M-Bus and PLC networks, extending the area covered within a territory.
  • Fully programmable protocol design provides various options for PLC/Wireless M-Bus communication protocols: PLC protocols (PRIME, G3-PLC, and PLC-Lite) over CENELEC, ARIB, and FCC frequency bands, and Wireless M-Bus C-/T-/S-mode TX/RX support over 868 MHz frequency bands.
