G3-PLC (FCC Band) Data Concentrator Reference Design


The TIDEP0058 reference design implements a complete Power Line Communications (PLC) Data Concentrator based upon the G3-PLC industry standard. It operates in the 157 kHz – 487 kHz band defined by the FCC for Smart Grid communications. The reference design includes G3-PLC software which supports the management of up to 1000 G3-PLC end points in a neighborhood area network. The reference design supports the full 312 Kbps data throughput specified by the G3-PLC standard.

  • Linux-based host application development based upon TI AM3359 ARM Cortex-A8 MPUComplete software stack available directly from TI ready for certification from the G3-PLC AllianceExpansion headers for wireless communications provide options for mixed PLC-RF network using IPv6 and 6LoWPANPLC system-on-module for narrowband Power Line Communication in FCC frequency band
