IDT Wins EDN China 2012 Innovation Award for Smart Grid Single-Phase Power Metering SoC
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Integrated Device Technology (News - Alert), Inc. (IDT®)
(NASDAQ:IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential
mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that its
single-phase power metering SoC was awarded the Best Product Award at
the eighth-annual EDN
China Innovation Awards in the Power/Power Devices and
Analog/Front-end ICs category. In addition, IDT's device was recognized
as a finalist for Semiconductor Product of the Year - Analogue in the 2012
Elektra European Electronics Industry Awards.
The IDT 90E46
is a single-phase SoC for smart meter designs, which integrates an
energy metering analog front-end with a real-time clock, temperature
sensor, LCD driver, and ARM (News - Alert) Cortex M0 microprocessor. The device offers
the industry's widest dynamic range of 5000:1, which enables meter
manufacturers to merge various meter types into one, thus simplifying
the design and manufacturing process for meter makers and reducing the
storage and management complexity for utilities. The high level of
integration enables system designers to significantly simplify the
hardware design and lower the bill-of-materials (BOM) cost.
"Once again, we are honored that our energy metering devices have been
recognized for technical superiority by one of China's most prestigious
electronic design magazines, EDN China," said Sean
Fan, vice preident and general manager at IDT. "Our energy metering
ICs offer an unmatched value proposition and have been designed-in at
several leading smart meter manufacturers in both China and Europe with
approximately 10 million units shipped to date. IDT's strong market
penetration is unprecedented in this highly regulated industry, which we
achieved in about two years since entering the market."
The IDT 90E46 metering SoC meets or exceeds the requirements set forth
by the State Power Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) and is fully
compliant with international (both IEC (News - Alert) and ANSI) and Chinese standards.
It complements the award-winning single-phase energy metering family (90E21,
along with the recently announced IDT 90E32AS,
the industry's first poly-phase metering IC with piecewise non-linear
compensation technology for enhanced accuracy. Visit www.idt.com/go/PowerMeter
