
Practical tool to start designing a PLC node
based on the ST7538Q power line FSK
transceiver
Composed of three main sections:

Wide-range input power supply section
based on VIPer12A-E, specifically
designed to coexist with PLC

ST7538Q transceiver section

Line coupling interface section tuned for
72-86 kHz dual channel
Suitable for pointing to multi-point two-way
communication over AC mains
Suitable for CENELEC EN50065 and FCC
part 15 compliant applications
Controllable by a PC through
EVALCOMMBOARD general purpose board
Programmable through intuitive graphical
user interface (GUI) for Windows® with full
control of ST7538Q parameters
March 2013
The EVALST7538DUAL board integrates the
ST7538 power line transceiver along with the
power supply section, the signal coupling
interface section, the crystal oscillator and device
protections. The coupling interface section has
been realized for communication on CENELEC
A-band used mainly for AMR applications, with
the chance of programmable switching between
72 kHz and 86 kHz communication channels.
This half-duplex “dual channel” communication
feature has been implemented through optimized
receiving and transmitting filters on the board.
EVALST7538DUAL board must be connected to
a PC through the EVALCOMMBOARD general
purpose board. The dedicated SW running on the
PC can be downloaded from
“www.st.com/powerline” web page.
The typical application environment consists of
two or more EVALST7538DUAL connected to the
same mains line, each connected to its own
EVALCOMMBOARD controlled by a PC running
the EVALCOMMBOARD GUI software.
