Single-chip energy meter ICs combine intelligent battery management with innovative signal processing technology to address the need of the world's electricity markets.

Analog Devices is introducing two families of single-chip energy meter ICs that combine intelligent battery management and ADI's innovative signal processing technology to address the need of the world's electricity markets for feature-rich, highly reliable meters Increasingly, solid-state, failure-resistant energy meters, such as those enabled by Analog Devices, are replacing aging electromechanical systems by providing consistently dependable measurement and new functions, like remote meter reading

ADI's new ADE7100 and ADE7500 energy meter SoC (system-on-chip) families include devices with intelligent battery modes that allow the meters to maintain the time, sense temperature changes, run the LCD (liquid crystal display) readout, and perform other critical system functions, while using at least 40% less power than competitive solutions.

Based on Analog Devices' field-proven ADE energy
