STarGRID ST7590 SoC PRIME power line communication development kit

Based on the ST7590 power line communication system-on-chip, the EVALKITST7590-Q1 demonstration kit embeds all the functions required for a turnkey power line communication network: the PLC node based on the ST7590 device, the AC power supply based on the ALTAIR4-900 SMPS controller and the STM32 microcontroller, to implement upper layers of PRIME protocol, and either control the system as a standalone application or to connect the EVALST7590-Q1 to an external host.

The EVALST7590-Q1 device embeds STMicroelectronics®Full PRIME protocol stack and provides a complete reference for PRIME-based application developments such as smart meters or concentrators, and is an ideal standalone tool for in field PRIME network tests.
