HomePlug Green PHY® powerline module based on QCA7000.
The PLC (PowerLine Communication) module
PLC Stamp micro 2 gives your application access to powerline
communication based on the HomePlug® Green PHY™ Chip QCA7000. You can
realize point-to-point and multi-point connections depending on your
application. The data will be transmitted as Ethernet packets over the
power line. This gives you the opportunity to use TCP/IP or whatever
network protocols you wish to use.
The galvanic isolation from the power
line as well as the power supply is left to you so that you can design
it right for your application.
The QCA7000 from Qualcomm Atheros guarantees the compatibility with many other commercial powerline devices.
To see how the module can be used please have a look at the PLC Stamp
Micro EVK. The datasheet contains a schematic for the insertion of the
PLC signals on the Powerline.
