Teridian Semiconductor Corp. has unveiled its third generation of power meter ICs to address the increasing demand for large-scale smart metering solutions in North America, Europe and Asia.

Two-way communication with a smart grid or smart home network, remote metre reading, service disconnect, and associated security and firmware-download features have become requirements, according to the company.

Teridian's 71M653x series includes residential single phase, commercial and industrial three phase ICs, offering up to 256K bytes of storage with 10 MIPS processing power, advanced power management, LCD contrast adjust, and 0.5 second/day hardware RTC which consumes only 0.5µA.

The 71M653x devices incorporate Teridian's unique metrology architecture built around Single Converter Technology with a 22-bit delta-sigma converter with up to seven analogue inputs, differential sensing and a 32-bit customisable metrology processor.
