On-demand Webinar: Hybrid Power Line and RF; a New Paradigm in IoT Communications

Join us to discover a unique approach to communications ideal for Smart Cities, Smart Infrastructures and Smart Industries

During this 1-hour on-demand webinar, you will be introduced to a new hybrid connectivity solution based on the ST8500 programmable power line communication (PLC) system-on-chip. The ST8500, when used in conjunction with the STLD1 PLC line driver and S2-LP RF transceiver, combines the advantages of both PLC and RF technologies to achieve the best coverage in any network condition and topology. We will also explore the tools available in our development ecosystem to get you started with the ST8500 SoC quickly and efficiently.


You will learn:

  • What power line communication is, and when/how to use it
  • How the integration of power line communication with RF improves performance
  • About ST's ecosystem of boards, application notes, and software GUI that simplify hybrid PLC and RF development.
