The SIG61 evaluation board is a prototyping tool in a SIG60 system consisting of one or more such slave boards ioperating over DC-BUS Power line communication network controlled by SIG60 Master.

Description

The SIG61 evaluation board contains all the hardware required for prototyping and testing. The IO connector interfaces with its 8 input pins or writing to its 8 output pins. A slider switch for setting the SIG61 Id and the devices internal parameters such as bit rate. The board contains a line protection network, ceramic filters and a 10V - 36V switching power supply.

Operation

The SIG61 operates in a network consisting up to 16 slave devices. The SIG60 controls the operation using messages with Id of the controlled slave + 5 types of commands: Read, Read-change, Write, Sleep and Change-Frequency. The command format is similar to the standard Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter (UART).

Data, received by a Write command, from the master device is reflected to the SIG61 output pins. A Read command from the Master device triggers the SIG61 to send the status of its input pins. Its small footprint integrates most of the components needed for its operation allowing small size control solutions. The SIG61 is an economical slave device for applications as controlling motors, reading sensors etc., eliminating the need for dedicated control wires and a host controller for its operation.

It reduces the harness size and increase reliability. A sleep mode enables power saving. Wakeup messages on DC line awaken remote devices. The SIG61 is useful for a wide range of Automotive, Avionics and Industrial applications such as sensor readings, actuator activation, doors, seats, mirrors, climate control, lights, Truck-Trailer, etc.
