14Mbps PLC module

SMK has developed a high speed 14Mbps PLC module designed for use in domestic applications.

The module allows information signals to run through 100V/200Vac power lines. To facilitate easy installation in various types of equipment, SMK designed the device to be as small as a business card. A noise reduction circuit, if mounted, will reduce noise leaks and stable communication quality will be realized.

SMK's module can enable an equipment to achieve up to 14Mbps communication rates, via existing power lines without the need for additional communication lines. A network can be easily built with it, said SMK.

The module has no distinction between masters and slaves. Applications include equipment carrying an Ethernet port. The module has a network interface of Ethernet 10Base-T/100Base-TX and has a supply voltage of 5Vdc.

Sample shipments will begin in September.
