Power Line Communications

Semtech Power Line Communications (PLC) products enable communications via low-voltage and medium-voltage power lines. Power line communications has long been a favorite application for utility companies because it allows them to reliably move data over an infrastructure that they own and control. One of the main benefits of PLC to utilities is that it efficiently addresses their communications needs across a vast array of applications (metering, substation monitoring, load control and load shedding, home energy management, etc.) all focused on collectively addressing their energy management tasks.

Semtech’s PLC product platforms work on Medium Voltage (LV) and Low Voltage (LV) networks and our SoC offers both end-device and DCU/Service Node functionalities throughout the PHY, MAC and Convergence layers.
