Grid Infrastructure

Smart grid and energy system solutions include a broad portfolio of silicon, software and tools for grid infrastructure, utility metering, and wired or wireless grid communication.



Metering Overview

E-Meter Solutions

Single and three-phase semiconductor components and development tools for energy meter system, including solutions for connectivity and security

Flow Meter Solutions

System components and design support for utility meters that measure water, gas and heat and feature scan interface, FRAM and ultrasonic time of flight support

Energy-measurement solutions from TI are designed to meet all requirements of ANSI C12.20 and IEC 62053 accuracy for Class 0.2 and Class 0.5 meters across the entire temperature range, with a full 2000:1 dynamic input range. TI’s electric meter metrology solutions include sophisticated anti-tampering protection to protect meter integrity and reduce non-technical losses in the field. TI’s solutions for AMI networks include both RF and PLC solutions, and also support most industry standards, including IEEE-802.15.4g, PRIME, G3-PLC, IEEE-1901.2 and ITU-G.990x.

Flow meter solutions from TI feature the world’s lowest power MCU to provide extended battery life and long-term reliability. The new FRAM-based ultra-low-power MSP430 microcontroller brings faster writes as well as unmatched endurance and flexibility to enable constant on-the-fly data logging and faster, simpler wireless firmware updates. TI’s global smart grid expertise and extensive R&D enable innovative solutions such as extended scan interface (ESI), support for LCD segment display and scalable memory options. And TI’s new FlowESI GUI eases sensor setup in software and EnergyTrace++™ technology enables developers to debug power consumption down to the peripheral-level like never before while maintaining high dynamic range from nA to mA.

TI’s Power Line Communications modem systems provide the best performing communication platform for today’s Smart Grid networks and metering applications around the world. These PLC solutions provide the flexibility of a single hardware and software design that can support multiple standards and therefore a single global platform, which reduce R&D costs and speed time to market.
