Teridian Semiconductor have announced the availability of their first system-on-a-chip (SoC) for power outlet measurement and monitoring. The 78M6612 (6612) extends Teridian’s extensive metering product line with a new class of integrated circuits (ICs) that are designed to help end users to understand the AC power they are consuming.
The 6612 enables duplex AC power measurement for use by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of home automation products, as well as enterprise OEMs for servers, power supplies, power distribution units and communication equipment.
The 6612 offers an accuracy of +/-0.5%, over a 2000:1 dynamic range, with self calibration to facilitate rapid design time and optimal manufacturing efficiencies.
The 78M6612, available from Dedicated Systems Australia , is a highly integrated, single phase, AC power measurement and monitoring SoC, which includes a 32-bit compute engine, an MPU core, real time clock, and Flash memory. Teridian’s patented Single Converter Technology, with a 22-bit delta-sigma ADC, and digital temperature compensation, supports a wide range of single phase, dual outlet power measurement applications, on 25mW of power.
Complete firmware is available along with reference designs to enable rapid development of power and energy measurement solutions that meet demanding worldwide standards.
78M6612 sample and production quantities are available in quantities of 100, for64 pin LQFP and 68 pin QFN packages. 6612 demo kits are also available.
