PL460-EK User Guide


PL460-EK (EV13L63A) is an Xplained PRO extension board featuring a PL460 modem that embeds a PLC signal
amplification stage, providing a highly integrated solution that reduces the total bill of materials, simplifies the layout
and eases the modem design. This board enables the user to evaluate the PL460 device performance.
The PL460 was 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 in the PL460, then
controls the modem operation. PL460-EK uses an Xplained PRO client connector to communicate with the host
microcontroller (i.e., PIC32CXMT family of EK/DBs, SAM4CMx-DB family, SAME70-Xplained or SAMG55-Xplained
The PL460-EK is a client companion board for the PIC32CXMT family of EK/DBs, SAM4CMx-DB family, SAME70-
Xplained and SAMG55-Xplained boards. All these boards include an Xplained PRO (host) connector, and the
PL460-EK includes an Xplained PRO connector accordingly (client).

The PL460-EK board includes a PL460, a programmable modem for narrow-band Power Line Communication
(PLC), able to run any PLC protocol in the frequency band below 500 kHz.
The PL460-EK board implements a PLC multiband configuration: in FCC band, using the main transmission
branch with the embedded PLC driver and CENELEC A-Band using the auxiliary transmission branch with
discrete components.
Client Xplained PRO header connector (J2) to interface with other boards.
The PL460-EK board needs two different power supplies. One power supply of 3.3V coming from the Xplained
PRO header connector (J2) and the other one of 15V coming from the DC Jack connector (J4).
