Based on the feedbacks of previous generations, LinkSprite new second-generation powerline communication modem products are consisted of a Spyder motherboard, UART-RS232 daughter board, UART-RS485 daughter board, UART-USB daughter board, and UART-Ethernet daughter board.


On the Spyder motherboard, there is a 20-pin receptacle, users can choose different daughter boards based on the interface needs. This 20-pin receptacle is pin-compatible with Xbee module from Digi ( So a Xbee module can also be used on PLC-UART, and PLC-UART will become a powerline communication to Zigbee bridge.


The new generation Spyder motherboard also support DIP by optional pins that can be used to directly plug to user's board without doing screwing. The interface board signals such as RS232/RS485/USB signals are also routed back to motherboard through the 20-pin receptacle, and again to users' board through these DIP pins.


Powerline communication transceiver modules from LinkSprite  (LinkSprite modules) are transceiver modules designed to send/receiver serial data over the powerline network. Spyder  is designed to transparently move serial data over the powerline network, and achieves the target of replacing cables by the ubiquitous powerline network.


LinkSprite modules have the built-in packet-level repeater function. This feature can greatly extend the coverage of the powerline communication.


LinkSprite module has both physical and logic addresses. In a network, both physical and logic addresses can be used to address different nodes in the network.


Don't forget the interface card.
