SM6401 is a highly integrated and most flexible FSK/S-FSK/B-PSK SoC solution. Designed for power line communication network applications, SM6401 integrates a 32-bit application processor with memory (32Kbytes application Flash) and peripherals, a network layer processor and an ultra-reliable and robust FSK/S-FSK/B-PSK modem. SM6401 is flexible enough to implement both the Lon and DLMS standards. In addition, it has been demonstrated to be configurable for interoperability with a wide variety of proprietary Narrowband PLC solutions. This level of integration and flexibility enables most all conceivable Narrowband PLC applications. The SM6401 has been designed with an emphasis on Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and Automated Meter Reading (AMR) applications, where its low cost and the high performance features are very attractive.
