DATASHEET

Single Port, PLC Differential Line Driver
ISL15100
Features
The ISL15100 is a single port differential line driver developed
for Power Line Communication (PLC) applications. The device
is designed to drive heavy line loads while maintaining the
high level of linearity required in OFDM PLC modem links. With
15.5dBm of total transmit signal power into 100Ω line load,
the driver achieves -43dB average MTPR distortion across the
output spectrum up to 86MHz.
• Single differential driver
The ISL15100 has two bias current control pins (C0, C1) to
allow for four power settings (disable, low, medium, high). In
disable mode, the line driver outputs maintain a high
impedance in the presence of high receive signal amplitude,
so it doesn’t affect TDM receive signal integrity.
The ISL15100 is available in the thermally-enhanced 16 Ld
QFN and is specified for operation over the full -40°C to +85°C
ambient temperature range.
• 100MHz Broadband PLC G.hn, EOC, HomePlug AV2
• Control pins for enable/disable and supply current selection
• High output impedance when disabled for TDM operation
• -43dBc average MTPR distortion at full line power
• Single +12V or bipolar ±6V nominal supplies
• High surge current handling capability
Applications
• Power Line Communication differential driver
• Pin compatible upgrade to ISL1571IRZ

Applications Information
Multi-Tone Power Ratio (MTPR)
Product Description
G.hn PLC uses OFDM modulation to digitally encode data for
communication. A carrier spacing of 24.41kHz is used in power
lines, and 48.82kHz is used in phone lines.
Feedback Resistor Values
The ISL15100 has been designed and specified with RF = 1kΩ
for AV = +16. As is the case with all current feedback amplifiers,
wider bandwidth at the expense of slight peaking, can be
obtained by reducing the value of the feedback resistor.
Inversely, larger values of the feedback resistor will cause rolloff
to occur at a lower frequency.
Quiescent Current vs Temperature
The ISL15100 was designed to have the quiescent current
increase with temperature, which maintains good distortion
performance at high temperatures.
Supply Voltage Range
The ISL15100 operates with bipolar supply voltages from ±4.0V
to ±6.6V (±6.65V maximum). Optimum bandwidth, slew rate,
and video characteristics are obtained at higher supply voltages.
Single Supply Operation
If a single supply is desired, values from +8.0V to +13.2V (+13.3V
maximum) can be used as long as the input common mode
range is not exceeded. When using a single supply, be sure to
either:
1. DC bias the inputs at an appropriate common mode voltage
and AC-couple the signal.
2. Ensure the driving signal is within the common mode range of
the ISL15100.
In multi-tone signaling, linearity is shown in the MTPR
measurement. MTPR measures the difference in power of a
carrier tone vs. a missing tone.

TONE POWER (dBm)
The ISL15100 is a differential operational amplifier designed for
line driving in power line communications (PLC). It is a low
distortion, current mode feedback amplifier that draws
moderately low supply current. Due to the current feedback
architecture, the ISL15100 closed-loop -3dB bandwidth is
dependent on the value of the feedback resistor. The desired
bandwidth is selected by choosing the feedback resistor, RF, and
then the gain is set by picking the gain resistor, RG.

FIGURE 4. PLC SIGNAL TONES WITH 25kHz SPACING
Figure 4 shows ISL15100's MTPR performance for a narrow
frequency span.
Disable Linearity
Unlike DSL, communication in PLC systems is half duplex
meaning only one device can transmit at a time. When the line
driver is not transmitting, it is disabled and the receiver is
enabled. Figure 5 shows the shared transmit and receive signal
path of two ends. When Txa is transmitting, optimal MTPR is
achieved if Txb is removed. Since Txb cannot be removed, the
best MTPR occurs if the line driver is a very high impedance
when disabled.
RBM are resistors to limit fault currents, and to provide a driving
impedance to the transformer, thus setting its frequency span.
RBM is typically low in value (<10Ω).

PC Board Design Recommendation
Thermal Resistance and Power Dissipation
To minimize parasitic capacitance in the ISL15100 design,
consider laying out short output traces. Also, select low
capacitance protection devices, and use line transformers with
low interwinding capacitance in the signal path.
Thermal resistance for junction to ambient, TJA, is +53°C/W. The
power dissipation at 12V supply is 600mW. The ambient
temperature allowed given the maximum junction temperature
of +150°C is:
The supply decoupling capacitors must be close to the supply
pins to minimize parasitic inductance in the supply paths. High
frequency load currents are pulled through these capacitors, so
placement of the 0.1µF capacitors close to the supply pin(s)
improves dynamic performance. The higher value 4.7µF
capacitors provide low frequency decoupling, so they can be
placed farther from the supply pins.
(EQ. 1)
T A = T J – θ JA × Pd
T A = +150°C – 53° ( C ⁄ W )∗ 600mW = +118°C
The ISL15100’s thermal pad (EP) should be connected to VS(ground in single supply applications). For good thermal control,
include a thermal pad in the layout footprint, as shown in the
“Typical Recommended Land Pattern” on the “Package Outline
Drawing” page. Adding vias to this thermal pad helps dissipate
heat away from the package. The ISL15100 evaluation board
uses four 10mil (hole size) vias with 20mil diameter pads.
