Socionext is sampling its SC11320A, an LSI chip that embeds an HD-PLC 4 IP core compliant with the IEEE 1901-2020 standard for broadband over power line networks. The SC11320A enables the implementation of the 4th-generation High Definition Power Line Communication (HD-PLC) specification while consuming just 200 mW of power. With Panasonic’s HD-PLC 4 IP core, the LSI device provides secure wired communication for IoT PLC devices that are connected using existing infrastructure.
HD-PLC supports communication networks by superimposing high-frequency signals (2 MHz to 28 MHz) over existing power lines, telephone lines, twisted-pair, coaxial cables, and other wire types. HD-PLC 4 specifies ½ and ¼ transmission modes to enable longer distance communications. It is capable of achieving a reach of up to 10 km when combined with multi-hop technology.
The SC1320A operates with a single 3.3-V power supply and comes in a compact 7×7-mm QFN package. Built-in I/Os such as SPI/UART and Ethernet MAC (RMII), allow the SC1320A to be easily embedded into home appliances, energy management systems, and IoT products.
