Overview

Description

This product is an evaluation kit for developing software and evaluating systems compatible with Renesas' PLC modem IC R9A06G037 and Renesas’ Sub-GHz Wireless IC RAA604S00.  This kit can be configured to support many configurations, PLC only R9A06G037, Hybrid (PLC + RF) R9A06G037+ RAA604S00, RF only (RX651 + RAA604S00 or R9A06G061+ RAA604S00). This kit is therefore intended as evaluation system for G3-PLC (inc. Hybrid), PRIME1.4 (inc. MultiPHY), and Wi-SUN. This product is a complete evaluation platform comprising the analog front end and control MCU required for AC based power line communication and Sub-GHz Wireless communication.
