SM9420 Evaluation Kit

SM2400

The SM9420 Evaluation Kit (EVK) is then 2nd version of SM9410 EVK, i.e. an evaluation kit for the SM2400 universal Narrowband Power Line Communication (NPLC) modem. The SM9420 EVK is designed to evaluate and develop various SM2400-based N-PLC solutions, including all major OFDM based N-PLC standards, such as PRIME, G3-PLC and IEEE 1901.2, as well as proprietary modes by loading different firmware versions. The SM9420 EVK includes a PC-based GUI application (SM2400Control.exe) that enables comprehensive configuration and control of the SM2400 modem and monitoring/testing of the communication performance. The SM9420 EVK's software offerings includes PRIME PHY/MAC, G3 PHY/MAC/ASL, IEEE 1901.2 PHY/MAC/ASL and XXR PHY/SMESH MAC. Each such offering is a separate build that can be downloaded to the EVK via the SM2400Control GUI. spacer

Applications

  • The evaluation of SM2400 various N-PLC solutions including popular narrowband OFDM PLC standards such as PRIME, G3 and IEEE 1901.2.
  • Development of software applications with power line networking for the SM2400 PLC transceiver
