Optimized PLC module lets developers create the next generation of devices for the smart grid

SAN ANTONIO -- Easing the problems facing smart grid developers, Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced one of the industry's most flexible, robust and optimized power line communication (PLC) system-on-module on the market at DistribuTECH 2014. TI collaborated with Tailyn Technologies to offer a customizable field-tested PLC module with a variety of modifications, including SoM packages, form factors and interfaces, so customers can implement TI's PLC technology in any design. The optimized PLC module allows developers to overcome multiple design challenges at once, such as creating products that support multiple PLC standards, supporting a wide variety of customizations based on utilities' design needs, and meeting time-to-market, performance and certification requirements. Customers can have the PLC module customized in terms of form factors, communication interfaces, and applications to meet any design needs.

Pairing TI's real-time C2000(TM) microcontroller with its AFE031 or AFE032 PLC analog front ends provides support for multiple PLC standards, including S-FSK, G3, PRIME, and IEEE-1901.2. The field-tested PLC module is ready for many types of conditions found in real-world smart grid implementations, such as automatic meter reading (AMR) or advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) metering, solar invertor control, street lighting control, and machinery control. Developers can expect a high-quality product that will meet the individual needs of their implementation. An accompanying reference design can be customized with application-specific software.

TI's Tailyn Technologies-customized PLC module will be on display at the Texas Instruments (#3859) booth at DistribuTECH 2014 in San Antonio, TX, January 28-30.
