PLC Framework for Cool Phoenix 3

PLC Framework for Cool Phoenix 3

Renesas Electronics


Enables narrow-band power line communication (PLC) capabilities using an external CPX3 PMOD board and a software API for PLC commands.


Provides a simple interface to set up and configure PLC communication based on the Renesas Cool Phoenix 3 PLC modem. Abstracts the serial UART driver in the SSP and includes a software API for convenient access to the CPX3 device which supports the G3 PLC (G.9903) and PRIME (G.9904) narrow-band PLC standards. The software API includes functions at the system management layer, and at each of the PLC protocol layers for flexible monitoring and control. The API also uses indications to alert users to internal or network events that may require action.


Evaluate the PLC Framework using an SK-S7G2 Starter Kit and a CPX3 Pmod board, available in the Connect-It! PLC-Pmod kit (Y-PMOD-OFDM-PLC-X3).
