To efficiently manage a complex electric energy distribution network, utilities must have an instantaneous view of energy input and consumption and possibly work to encourage consumer behavior that could help flatten out peaks in demand. The notion of Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) and Automatic Meter Infrastructures (AMI) are the enabling technologies for the so-called Smart Grid concept. Power Line Communication (PLC), a wired communication technology, has definitely become the underlying technology at the heart of many of the standards dedicated to electric energy distribution such as G3-PLC, PRIME, Meters and More and SunSpec. We have a comprehensive offer of PLC transceivers, systems-on-chip (SoC), and STM32 microcontrollers for building energy meters and concentrators that comply with today’s major standards together with a range of evaluation and development tools in addition to reference designs.
