The EVLKST8500GH hybrid connectivity solution for the ST8500 SoC platform combines the advantages of both PLC and RF technologies to enable applications with the best coverage in any network conditions and topologies.
You can easily explore features and benefits of the ST hybrid PLC&RF solution using the EVLKST8500GH915 kit together with the STSW-ST8500GH firmware and documentation package.
Messages between two nodes in the PLC&RF hybrid network are sent over the best available medium PLC or RF. The media selection for each link in the network is done automatically and adjusted dynamically, enabling highly efficient hybrid mesh networking.
The ST hybrid PLC&RF solution is based on open standards and enables seamless integration into existing G3-PLC networks and adoption in multiple applications and systems.
Note that at least two EVLKST8500GH915 kits must be ordered to test hybrid PLC&RF connectivity between two nodes.
