The DMI920 evaluation kit offers a simple way to evaluate MaxLinear's Wave-2 Networking solution over powerline, twisted pair, or coaxial cable. This kit utilizes the 88LX5153A Wave-2 Digital Baseband (DBB) processor and the 88LX2741 Analog Front End (AFE) integrated circuits (ICs).

When used with MaxLinear's Spirit Grid software it supports a large-scale, multi-hop network of up to 250 nodes in a single network domain. Spirit Grid’s self-organize-network feature enables autonomous device installation and configuration, optimal signal path selection, and network self-healing capabilities. It can also auto-configure the client to simultaneously perform the repeating function, which eliminates the need for a dedicated repeater that is typically needed by other broadband powerline technologies.

The new DMI920 Evaluation Kit is MaxLinear’s industrial IoT multi-medium, multi-interface EVK. It combines the transceiver solution with MaxLinear’s pre-programmed 3-Output PMIC (XR77103-GR12), 1G Ethernet PHY (GPY115), USB to Ethernet Bridge (XR22800), and SP336E multi-protocol transceiver.
