Device Language Message Specification Protocol Stack for 16-bit PIC MCUs

Microchip Technology and Kalki Communication Technologies (Kalkitech) teamed together to optimize a Device Language Message Specification (DLMS) protocol stack for 16-bit PIC microcontrollers (MCUs). The DLMS stack is available now. It is available in four flavors: DLMS Evaluation Library (free evaluation version), DLMS-lite Stack ($3,900 for 5k units), DLMS Stack ($4,800 for 5k units), and DLMS Explorer ($2,800 each).

The DLMS protocol has become the worldwide standard of choice among smart meter designers for interoperability among metering systems, including most energy types (electricity, gas, heat and water), multiple applications (residential, transmission and distribution), and communication media (RS232, RS485, PSTN, GSM, GPRS, IPv4, PPP and PLC); as well as secure data access, via AES 128 encryption.
