The DCB1M Evaluation Board contains all the required firmware for operation as a DC power line transceiver.
The board has line protection network and BPF filter required for the DCB1M ASIC operation.
A switching power supply provides the 3.3V required for the board operation from 10V to 36V DC power line.
At the transmitter side, the external host input messages to the DCB1M device via J1 HDI pin either as an asynchronous UART/DMX/RDM or synchronous SPI/I2C bit stream. The message is constructed into packets, protected against errors, modulated, and conducted over the DC power line.
At the receiver side, the received phase-modulated signal from the DC line
is decoded back into a bit stream message. The asynchronous or synchronous (UART/SPI/DMX512/RDM/I2C) message output to the external host via J1 HDO.
Robust communication over DC or AC power line.
Supports UART, SPI, DMX512, RDM and I2C protocols.
Bit rates of up to 1.4Mbit/s.
Plug & Play solution with EVB-Tester and DC-BUS Test SW.
On-board 10V to 36V PS for 3.3V supply.
Variable error correction codes, to match the channel conditions.
A fabless semiconductor company since 1994. We develop and sell our unique devices for DC power line communication targeting wire saving. Customers in more than 51 countries use the devices in a wide range of applications; Automotive, Aerospace, Lighting, Battery monitoring (BMS) and more. The devices meet existing protocols such as UART, LIN, CAN, SPI, DMX512, and I2C keeping it simple to operate. Yamar engineers lead the LIN over DC powerline (DC-LIN) ISO 17987-8 standardization workgroup.
The innovation team continues to develop new technologies and products.
