R9A06G061 is a narrow-band power line communication modem IC that consists of analog front-end (AFE), DSP, and MCU. The high-performance DSP performs OFDM modulation and demodulation signal processing (PHY layer), and the MCU handles protocol conversion to/from the host interface. R9A06G061 enables high-speed and stable long-distance communication for P2P (Peer to Peer) networks. Especially, R9A06G061 has improved direct drive capability in order to expand its use in DC power supply system applications.
