Irvine, Calif.Teridian Semiconductor has launched an energy measurement SoC, the 78M6618 (6618), for use in data center power distribution units (PDUs) and applications in the smart home, including intelligent power strips and circuit breaker panels.
According to Teridian, the 6618 is the industry's first and only SoC that enables power metering, monitoring and intelligent relay control of eight single phase outlets simultaneously. In addition, the 6618's ability to monitor and control eight channels at once can be extended to 32 or more channels by connecting multiple chips together.
The 6618 offers accuracy of better than ±0.5 percent over a 2000:1 dynamic range with self calibration to facilitate rapid design time and optimal manufacturing efficiencies. The 6618 is a single phase, eight-outlet, PDU power measurement, and monitoring SoC, which includes a 32-bit compute engine, an MPU core and FLASH memory. Teridian's patented Single Converter Technology, with a 22-bit delta-sigma ADC, 10 analog inputs, precision voltage reference, and digital temperature compensation, supports a wide range of PDU metering applications with very few external components.
A complete array of ICE and development tools, programming libraries and reference designs enable rapid development and prototyping of power and energy measurement devices.
