Smart Grid

With over 84 devices to choose from, TI has a flexible and robust platform for electricity energy measurements that meet or exceed global regulatory requirements including IEC62052-22(Global) and ANSI C12.20 (US) standards. With up to seven 24-Bit fully differential sigma delta converters, the family can achieve the highest level of accuracy across a full 2000:1 input current dynamic range. In addition, with up to 512kB Flash memory and 32kB SRAM on chip, developers can incorporate more sophisticated metering features such as dynamic pricing tables, DLMS/COSEM for meter data formatting and communication stacks for both wired and wireless protocols. The advanced anti-tampering features built in to the microcontrollers help utilities prevent power theft and meter manipulation.

Designed specifically for the demands of smart grid applications, TI's MSP430 microcontroller is the perfect combination of ultra-low-power and high performance analog integration. MSP430 offers devices for water, gas and one to three-phase electricity metering, as well as radio frequency wireless interfaces for automated meter reading (AMR).

An advanced electronic electricity meter requires an MCU that offers precise voltage and current conversion over a wide dynamic range, programmable Flash, non-volatile storage, real-time clock function, flexible display and AMR-enabled communications features. The MSP430 family of electricity metering devices offers up to seven 16-bit independent sigma-delta converters and programmable gain amplifiers along with specific integrated e-metering modules such as the ESP engine and 32x32 hardware multiplier allowing for easy, high performance energy metering calculations. Flow metering applications require unique offerings as well. MSP430 devices with scan interface modules include integrated analog front ends and conditioning circuitry to minimize your bill of materials when rotation detection is needed.

Factory Automation & Control (Industrial)

As modern process control systems become increasingly more complex, so does the requirement for embedded processing within individual sensor units. Whether it be for localized data analysis or to support the growing need for digital communication protocols, many sensor manufacturers are now including an MCU within the sensor to enable these new features.

Many existing wired sensors are being retrofitted with a digital communication channel capable of providing more information about the sensors current operating status. This can help to reduce cost of ownership by enabling preventative maintenance schemes which helps to identify failing sensors prior to total failure avoiding costly system breakdowns. Recent innovations in the wireless communication arena are helping to drive growth within the field of wireless sensor networks, when coupled with new energy harvesting techniques, wireless sensor networks are becoming an everyday reality in many remote monitoring situations.

Bringing together high performance analog peripherals, innovative FRAM memory technology combined with the world's lowest power consumption combine to make the MSP430 family of microcontrollers the ideal solution at the heart of new ultra-low-power industrial sensors.
