G3 Power Line Communications Data Concentrator on BeagleBone Black Platform


This Power Line Communications (PLC) Data Concentrator design offers a simplified approach for evaluating G3-PLC utilizing Beagle Bone Black powered by the Sitara AM335x processor.  Users can establish a G3-PLC network with one service node.  Single phase coupling is supported.

  • Simplified, cost effective solution for evaluating G3-PLC utilizing BeagleBone Black (BEAGLEBK) and TI's PLC Modem Kit TMDSPLCKITV4-CEN kit).
  • Forms a small end-to-end G3-PLC network utilizing two modems from TMDSPLCKITV4-CEN kit.  One for Data Concentrator PHY and one for Service Node.
  • Demonstrates single phase coupling
  • Complete system demonstration with Design Guide and step-by-step setup instructions.
  • The system is based on kits available from TI's eStore or distributors that include Linux applications, middleware, drivers, HW schematics, bill of materials, and design files.
