Semtech EV8080

Multi-mode PLC Display Modem SoC

Add to Watch List

The EV8080 is a highly integrated system-on-chip (SoC) solution that combines a complete PLC modem including AFE, PHY, MAC and upper layers up to and including IPV6 to offer the entire silicon requirements of a PLC modem in one chip.

The EV8080 offers multi-mode modulation supporting advanced OFDM line coding with proprietary algorithms to enable robust data transmission over power line networks. It also supports FSK and Spread Spectrum line coding to support legacy applications in existing power line networks. The following
implementations are supported.


  • Complete single chip multi-mode PLC display modem solution supporting OFDM, FSK and Spread
  • Spectrum Modulation
  • Integrated AFE (Analog Front End), PHY (Physical Layer), MAC (Media Access Control) and Upper
  • Layers (up to and including IPV6)
  • Integrated 32-bit RISC microcontroller with 384 KB SRAM and up to 1MB of integrated Flash
  • memory
  • Complies with the following frequency bands: CENELEC A, B, C, D, FCC, and ARIB
  • Standard and Semtech-Proprietary High-Performance Forward Error Correction (FEC)
  • Integrated hardware AES Engine encryption / decryption accelerator
  • User-configured start & end operating frequency
  • Carrier Sense Multiple Access / Collision Avoidance (CSMA/CA) channel access
  • Automatic Repeat Request (ARQ) to enhance error detection and improve data reliability
  • Supports SPI, I2C, and UART interfaces
  • OTW (Over The Wire) field upgrades
  • Industrial temperature operating range (-40°C to +85°C)


  • Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)
  • Airport Runway Lighting
  • Internet of Things (IoT) 
  • Home Area Network (HAN)
