Teridian Semiconductor introduced the 78M6618 (6618) energy measurement system-on-chip (SoC). The 6618 is a highly integrated, single phase, eight-outlet, PDU power measurement, and monitoring SoC. The 78M6618 SoC can monitor and control eight channels at once and can extended to 32 or more channels by connecting multiple chips together. The 6618 chip is ideal for data center power distribution units (PDUs) and applications in the smart home, including intelligent power strips and circuit breaker panels. The 78M6618 is available now and priced at $5.90 in quantities of 1,000.
Teridian Semiconductor is sampling their new 71M6541x and 71M6xx1 residential smart metering integrated circuits (ICs). The 71M6541x and 71M6xx1 feature digitally isolated current sensors based on their MicroDAA isolation technology. By incorporating isolation technology into the metering solutions, Teridian have overcome traditional barriers associated with the use of resistive shunts in multi-phase applications.
