ST7580 Power Line Networking System On Chip Demonstration kit

Built around the ST7580 power line networking system-on-chip, this demonstration kit embeds all the functions required for a “turnkey” power line communication network: the PLC node based on the ST7580, the AC power supply (based on the ALTAIR4-900 chip) and the STM32 microcontroller, to either control the system as a standalone application or to connect the EVALKITST7580-1 to an external host.

The typical application environment consists of two or more EVALKITST7580-1s connected to the same mains line, each being controlled by a PC running the ST7580 GUI software.

Key Features

  • Suitable for point-to-multipoint 2-way power line communication (PLC) over AC mains
  • Flexible 2-board architecture:
    • EVALST7580-1, PLC board based on the ST7580 narrow-band FSK/PSK power line networking system-on-chip
    • EVLALTAIR900-M1, wide-range input voltage, 7.5 W power supply board based on the ALTAIR04-900 quasi-resonant current-mode SMPS controller
  • STM32 microcontroller hosted on the EVALST7580-1 board to handle the ST7580 device and build a standalone power line node
  • External access through several interface types: USB, SPI, I2 C, USART, JTAG
  • Opportunity to save and load data to/from an external μ-SD card
  • Intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) for the Windows® environment with fully programmable transceiver parameters
  • Suitable for CENELEC EN50065 and FCC part 15 compliant applications
