Check out our results from our competitor comparison test effort. We tested the P1000 TX vs. a nationally know PLC line driver using our LabVIEW test setup. Once the loads dropped to 10 Ohms and below, the P1000 demonstrated that it could provide a lower distortion waveforms at high currents than the competition. The distortion at 1 Ohm load, is better than the competitor’s at 10 Ohms. The full report is available on our website. www.plan9inc.com/services/ipproducts/
Our Narrow Band Power Line Communications (PLC), Analog Front-end IP is out, it all functions, we are testing it, and the performance is looking like the specs! What more could you ask for? We will be finishing up our evaluation and sending out the complete data sheets to those who are interested and contact us. Feel free to inquire!
The IC’s are finally here after a lot of effort including the fab cycle, the board design, the LabVIEW test solution, and the packaging. See the pictures of the die, packages, and test board on the front page slideshow. We are testing it now, stay tuned for updates.
Three blocks are offered at this time: 1) 3A, 24V transmitter capable of driving low impedance loads down to 1 Ohm, 2) RX with range of 48dB to -12dB of total gain with a high voltage input, and 3) a precision bias circuit used to provide each the above circuits with the required reference currents. Take a look at the data sheets in the IP section. Email or call us for additional information.
