This PLC kit is designed for the development of narrowband PLC systems across the ARIB frequency band (154kHz to 403 kHz). The kit includes a pair of PLC modems each using Texas Instruments’ PLC docking station and SOMPLC-F28M35 System on Module (SOM). The SOMPLC-F28M35 SOM is a single-board design for PLC in the ARIB frequency band. This single hardware design supports several popular PLC industry standards including G3 and IEEE-1901.2. TI develops and provides the complete PLC software stacks along with the SoM. The PLC docking station includes the AC mains line coupling circuitry and system power management.

  • Complete PLC solution for G3 and IEEE-1901.2 across the ARIB frequency band.
  • Flexible hardware reference design suitable for production systems
  • High speed data transmission through Low-Voltage power lines
  • Connects easily with TI PLC Data Concentrator TMDSDC3359 for full network development

What's Included

  • Two modems included per kit
  • TI-supplied firmware for G3 and IEEE-1901.2
  • Zero-config GUI tool to control and test modems
