The 88LX2720 is a programmable, high-performance Wave-2 G.hn analog front-end (AFE) for powerline communications. It offers one transmission channel and two reception channels to enable both SISO operation using one device and MIMO using two devices. In addition to the transmission and reception paths, the 88LX2720 contains a biasing circuit and a register block controlled from the digital interface.
The 88LX2720 AFE is used in the DW920 G.hn Wave-w Powerline Networking Evaluation Kit.
