This power line communication evaluation kit for direct current (DC) power lines can be used to carry out software development and system evaluation using the R9A06G037 PLC modem IC. Two or more of this kit are necessary for evaluating PLC communication.


  • Supported MCU and PLC modem IC
    • MCU Group: RL78/G13
    • Part number of MCU mounted on board: R5F100GLAFB
    • PLC modem IC: R9A06G037
    • Part number of PLC modem IC mounted board: R9A06G037
  • For detailed information about the microcontroller, see the RL78/G13 Group page.
  • Board Configuration: The kit contains the complete circuit configuration necessary for DC power line communication, including analog front end (AFE), a microcontroller for control and a PLC modem IC.
  • The kit contains the following three boards.
    1. PLC board: PLC modem IC (R9A06G037) and AFE device (ISL15110)
    2. RL78/G13 MCU board: Microcontroller board for control (RL78/G13)
    3. Power filter board: PLC signal elimination filter for impedance upper and DC power source
  • Main unit outer dimensions: 1) + 2) 105mm x 70mm x 32mm and 3) 40mm x 70mm x 35mm
  • Supported frequencies:
    • 35.9375kHz - 90.625kHz
