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.

  • Smallest broadband powerline module
  • System interface: SPI, UART (TTL level)
  • All QCA7000 GPIOs are available
  • On-board QCA7000 flash memory
  • SMD solderable

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.
