Power Line Communication (PLC) Solution

TI’s PLC modem systems provide the best-performing communication platform for today’s Smart Grid networks around the world

Image of Texas Instruments' Power Line Communication (PLC) SolutionTI’s PLC modem systems provide the best-performing communication platform for today’s Smart Grid networks around the world.

Modern PLC networks utilize OFDM modulation techniques to increase data throughput rates and reliability in inherently noisy environments such as electric grids. Due to its successful history of OFDM expertise, Texas Instruments has long been a pioneer in developing OFDM communications technology.
