ZigBee front ends for smart metering
28 April 2010, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

RF Micro Devices is teaming with Ember to introduce ZigBee front end modules (FEMs) for smart grid applications that give utilities and consumers more control over how they monitor and save energy. ZigBee is a global wireless networking standard for monitoring and control in a variety of applications such as energy management, safety and security, lighting and appliances.

While RFMD’s newest ZigBee FEMs can be used with any ZigBee application, the product family initially targets smart grid and smart energy applications such as smart meters, demand response and home area network (HAN) devices. Beyond smart energy, the new FEM family is also designed for industrial applications and any other wireless sensing and control applications that demand low power consumption, high performance and proven reliability.

RFMD’s ZigBee FEM family includes the RF6525, RF6515 and RF6535, which are optimised to operate with the Ember EM300 series system-on-chip (SoCs) – EM351 and EM357 – as well as Ember’s EM250 SoC and EM260 network co-processor. The EM300 series is Ember’s next-generation ZigBee chip family, and the world’s first ARM Cortex-M3 based ZigBee SoC. The EM250 and EM260 deliver excellent RF performance, sensitivity and transmit power for long range and 802.11 immunity.
