CHANDLER, Ariz., June 12, 2018- with the improvement of the global smart grid infrastructure penetration, power companies are looking for ways to improve the reliability and performance of smart meters, in response to multiple markets.To meet the growing needs of utilities, equipment manufacturers dedicate extensive resources developing different versions of products based on existing and emerging industry-standard Power Line Communication (PLC) protocols.

Microchip Technology Inc.(NASDAQ: MCHP)recently launched a flexible PLC modems, which can support up to 500 kHz frequency , enabling manufacturers to meet different end- customer regulations, market and operational requirements.The single device can be easily adjusted through firmware, significantly reducing development costs and shortening time-to-market.

PRESS release summary:
Streamline Deployment of Smart Energy Equipment with Flexible Power Line Communication (PLC) Modem

What are the benefits of the PL360B

The PL360B is designed specifically to meet PLC protocols such as ITU g.9903 (g3-plc) and ITU g.9904 (PRIME), as well as CENELEC, FCC and ARIB compliant applications. the PL360B is the latest device in Microchip’s portfolio of industry-leading smart energy products, The PL360B modem comes with reference designs for adding a PLC interface to any end-customer application requiring connectivity, including smart meters, lighting, home automation, building automation and remote control.
"So far, the deployment of the nearly 100 million metering equipment and PLC devices, Microchip has incorporated extensive field expertise and application knowledge in the development of its smart energy products, which have consistently exceeded our customers expectations in performance and long-term reliability"Kourosh Boutorabi, director of the Smart energy devices at Microchip."
The PL360B device addresses the major design challenges faced by manufacturers in  developing multi-protocol and field-upgradable metering infrastructure equipment.Our solution provides what customers need to easily develop high-performance smart meters and get to market quickly.”
Other benefits of Using PL360B modem include the efficient use of power, compared with previous generations, the power consumption increased by 25%, there is a a Class D amplification scheme, further optimize the modem transmission efficiency.
Jotrin electronics think that this time, Microchip’s PL360B have greatly enriched the market of smart tools and development platforms and accelerated the development of intelligent terminal devices.We know that Multi-protocol modem offers single design that addresses a variety of smart metering markets and requirements

The PL360B’s details and related features

The PL360B is a programmable modem for narrow-band Power Line Communication (PLC), able to run any PLC protocol in the frequency band below 500 kHz.
This device has been designed to comply with FCC, ARIB, KN60 and CENELEC EN50065 regulations matching requirements of Internet of Things and Smart Energy applications. It supports state-of-the-art narrow-band PLC standards such as ITU G.9903 (G3-PLC®), ITU G.9904 (PRIME) as well as any other narrowband PLC protocols, being at the same time a future-proof platform able to support the evolution of these standards.
The PL360B has been conceived to be driven by external Microchip host devices, thus providing an additional level of flexibility on the host side. The Microchip host device loads the proper PLC-protocol firmware before modem operation and controls the PL360 modem.
