Power Line Communication Transceiver

The GC2200 is a next-generation OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) power line communication transceiver for networked data transmission.

A complete packet modem with a simple physical layer communication protocol is built into the GC2200. It integrates with a microcontroller (MCU) to provide a cost-effective communication solution for data links and point-to-point, star or AD HOC (peer-to-peer) networks. It also interfaces with a 10 MHz serial peripheral interface (SPI) to block request output. Specialized microcontrollers and software for the most cost-effective and versatile OFDMA PLC products.
  • New generation OFDMA transceivers have a maximum data rate of 175KBPS
  • 54 carriers are divided into 18 independent OFDM channels, allowing frequency division
  • BPSK/QPSK selectable modulation
  • 5 KHZ to 500KHZ carrier frequency
  • Narrowband analog and low frequency modes place channels in the CENELEC frequency range
  • Programmable in-use band (BIU) threshold for noise prevention
  • Receive a packet containing RSSI (received signal strength indication)
  • Minimize peak to mean ratio by changing carrier frequency
  • Independently programmable carrier transmission voltage (-3DB step size) and power regulation
  • Advanced Measurement System (AMR)
  • Automatic meter reading (AMI)
  • Street light control
  • Smart Energy Home Area Network
  • Home automation (HA)
  • Building Automation (BA)
  • SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition)
  • Cost-effective OFDMA Modem - up to 175KBPS
  • Up to 18 independent communication channels
  • 54 carrier frequencies selectable
  • BPSK/QPSK selectable modulation optimizes performance
  • Independently programmable carrier transmission power optimizes power
