PLC Stamp Mini 2


The Powerline Communication module PLC Stamp Mini 2 gives your application access to powerline communication based on the HomePlug® Green PHY™ Chip QCA7005.

The galvanic isolation from the power line is part of the module. The power supply is left to you so that you can design it right for your application.

Different Connections

You can realize point-to-point and multi-point connections depending on your application. The data will be transmitted as Ethernet packets over the power line. This gives you the opportunity to use TCP/IP or whatever network protocols you wish to use.

Compatibility

You can freely design the power supply external to the module so that it perfectly meets the requirements for your application.

The QCA 7005 from Qualcomm Atheros guarantees the compatibility with many other commercial powerline devices.
