ZigBee Solutions for the Smart Grid

11/13/2012

Maxim Integrated Products announced a partnership with RadioPulse to provide ZigBee® communication for smart grid solutions. Together, Maxim and RadioPulse will market and develop ZigBee software, highly integrated systems on chips (SoCs), and "smart" transceivers to augment Maxim's current smart grid solutions and Zeus, its recently announced smart-meter SoC.

The partnership is already providing more highly integrated smart grid solutions. The tight synergy between the RadioPulse wireless ZigBee software and Maxim's smart, secure IC solutions saves time, board space, and implementation costs for customers. The advantages of this partnership are immediately apparent when compared to existing nonintegrated solutions.

Industry Commentary
"Maxim supports a variety of standards-based communication solutions including Zigbee. By collaborating with RadioPulse on our Zeus platform, we ensure that customers have innovative, highly integrated, and very secure smart grid solutions," said Kris Ardis, business director for smart grid products at Maxim Integrated.

"Customers love Maxim's metrology and security solutions, and we have a superb solution that matches Maxim's innovative culture," said Dr. Sungho Wang, CEO at RadioPulse.

"In the past three years, almost 60 million smart meters have been deployed-with almost 20 million including a HAN gateway' (home area network - typically ZigBee) to enable connectivity between the backhaul AMI (typically powerline or RF mesh) and in-home devices, such as in-home displays (IHDs)," according to a report from IMS Research, recently acquired by IHS.

RadioPulse ZigBee SoCs are immediately available for use with Maxim's smart grid products.
