The SM2400 is a highly programmable OFDM based N-PLC modem combining PHY, MAC with mixed signal components for optimal system cost and performance. The SM2400 combines the benefits ofprogrammable architecture with power and cost efficiency by utilizing two 32bit cores configured specifically for N-PLC modulations and protocols.The SM2400 comes with firmware versions implementing 1901.2 compliant PHY and MAC layers and 6LoWPAN data link layer as well asPRIME, G3-PLC, FSK/BPSK, Lon compliant mode and other special modes tailored for smart metering and smart grid applications. The SM2400 is capable of achieving data rates of up to 500Kbps over500KHz frequency band.The SM2400 enables secure communication featuring a 256-bit AES encryption core with CCM* mode support.Integrated analog front end featuring ADC, DAC,gain control and two OpAmp’s allows for a very efficient system design with a low cost BOM.Memory interfaces include serial flash for program storage and external SRAM (available only in the (SM2480) for applications requiring extendedmemory, such as base stations. The SM2400 can also run simple applications on its DLL core. In case, where a host MCU is being used, they interface viaSPI or UART.
