A PLC developer’s kit (TMDSPLCKIT-V3) is available to order at www.ti.com/plc. This kit offers complete hardware and software solutions for introducing flexible, efficient, and reliable networking capabilities to a wide variety of applications. With unique modular hardware architecture and flexible software framework, TI’s PLC solutions are the only PLC-based technology capable of supporting multiple protocol standards and modulation schemes with a single platform. This technology enables designers to leverage product lines across global markets. The flexibility of the platform also allows developers to optimize hardware and software performance for specific environmental operating conditions while simplifying end-to-end product design. Based on TI’s powerful C2000™ microcontroller architecture and the AFE031, developers can select the correct blend of processing capacity and peripherals to either add powerline communications to an existing design or implement a complete application with PLC communications.
The C2000 Powerline Modem Developer's Kit enables easy development of software-based PLC modems. The kit includes two PLC modems based on the C2000 TMS320F28069 controlCARD and the AFE031. The included PLC SUITE software supports several communication techniques, including OFDM (PRIME/G3 and FlexOFDM) and SFSK. The kit also includes onboard USB JTAG emulation and Code Composer Studio.
