Overview

Description

This product is an evaluation kit for DC-based power line communication for developing software and evaluating systems compatible with Renesas' PLC modem IC R9A06G061. This product is a complete evaluation platform comprising the analog front end and control MCU required for DC power line communication.

To evaluate PLC communication using this product, the PHY Performance Evaluation Tool: SimpleMAC GUI is required. Please download SimpleMAC GUI and User's Manual from the Downloads section of this page. (Two or more of this kit are necessary for evaluating PLC communication)
