During this 1-hour webinar, you will be introduced to a new hybrid connectivity solution based on the ST8500 programmable power line communication ( .. Read more PLC) system-on-chip. The ST8500, when used in conjunction with the STLD1 PLC line driver and S2-LP RF transceiver, combines the advantages of both PLC and RF technologies to achieve the best coverage in any network condition and topology. You will also learn about the tools available in our development ecosystem to get you started with the ST8500 SoC quickly and efficiently. We will start with an introduction of basic communication concepts, then explain when and why to use a combination of power line and RF integrated in a single protocol. The ST8500-based hybrid PLC & RF solution is based on open standards G3-PLC, IEEE 802.15.4, 6LowPAN, and IPv6, and enables seamless integration into multiple applications and systems. Based on market-proven and widely-used connectivity chipsets, this solution facilitates smart city and industry infrastructures through the combination of power line and wireless communication. There will be a live Q&A session at the end of the webinar where ST’s experienced engineers will be available to answer your questions.
