Display PLC Modem SoC

Add to Watch List

The EV8100 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, display unit processor, keypad input interface and LCD display to offer the entire silicon requirements of a PLC display modem in one
One of the main applications of the EV8100 display modem SOC is in Split Meter Architecture in power networks where there is a need for the consumers to be aware of alerts and informative messages from the insides of their homes.
