STarGRID ST7590T SoC PRIME-certified power line communication development kit
  • active Active

Based on the ST7590 powerline communication system-on-chip, the EVALST7590T-2 development kit embeds all the functions required for a turnkey powerline communication network: the PLC node is based on the ST7590T device, the AC power supply is based on the ALTAIR4-900 SMPS controller and the STM32F103RG microcontroller, to either control the system as a standalone application or to connect the EVALST7590T-2 to an external host.

The EVALST7590T-2 embeds ST’s full PRIME-compliant protocol stack and provides a complete reference for PRIME-based applications such as smart meters or concentrators, and is an ideal standalone tool for in-field PRIME network tests.

The EVALST7590T-2 kit supports DLMS/COSEM libraries and has been jointly developed by ST and Fideltronik to accelerate high-volume

industrial implementation and customization, as well as to provide ready and customizable solutions for any special, low-volume application.
