New Data Concentrator Solution Supports Smart Grid

The Aricent Group will collaborate with Texas Instruments Inc. on a new data concentrator solution for the smart grid market.

The joint data concentrator solution is based on TI's Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 or Sitara AM1808 ARM9 processors and power line communication solution (AFE031 combined with C2000 TMS320F28PLC83 microcontroller) that provide connectivity supporting both PRIME and G3 standards. Aricent has developed a feature-rich protocol stack for device language message specification (DLMS) / companion specification for energy metering (COSEM), which is fully ported and optimized on the TI data concentrator platform.
