A low cost low throughput receiver for home or industrial automation systems

A system has been developed for low cost data exchange over powerline based on a digital implementation of a commercial FPGA; the system has been prototyped and validated in its digital side, whereas the analogic implementation has been developed by other participants to the project WIRENET. The protocol implemented is a carrier less one, where the time allocation of short pulses determined the value of the bit. The approach proposed shows good immunity to disturbances and potentially long reach, and can be used from home or small industry implementations, where the good robustness is required together with small size and low cost of components; being the system based on pulses, it does not included oscillators, which reduces costs and size of the device.
