One of the more evident trends at the recent
Metering Europe 2006 event in Copenhagen
was that both meter manufacturers and
utility companies are placing an increased
emphasis on the use of communication
networks to create added value for
their systems and also to leverage from
infrastructure investment already in place.

Short-range devices (SRD) are radio transmitters that communicate unidirectionally or bidirectionally with little capability of interfering with other radio equipment. They provide many different services, including home automation, wireless alarms, and remote keyless entry.
(RF DesignLine, March 07, 2007)
The term “Short Range Device” (SRD) covers radio transmitters which provide either unidirectional or bi-directional communication and which have a low capability of causing interference to other radio equipment.

The broad acceptance of standards developed for short range wireless connectivity has been one of the notable features of the semiconductor market in the past few years. The available wireless standards are not always the best fit for the application’s requirements, however. (Analog Dialogue, Volume 42, Number 4 2008)
The metering of electric power coming into the home is going electronic, replacing the long-established electromechanical power-line meter (from the 1890s) with all-electronic smart meters.

The model number is a specific version of a generic that can be purchased or sampled.
Status indicates the current lifecycle of the product. This can be one of 4 stages:
Pre-Release: The model has not been released to general production, but samples
may be available.
Production: The model is currently being produced, and generally available for purchase
Last Time Buy: The model has been scheduled for obsolescence, but may still be purchased
for a limited time.
Obsolete: The specific part is obsolete and no longer available. Other models listed
in the table may still be available (if they have a status that is not obsolete).
The package for this IC (i.e. DIP, SOIC, BGA). An Evaluation Board is a board engineered
to show the performance of the model, the part is included on the board.

Pin Count is the number of pins, balls, or pads on the device. Pin-out diagrams
& pin function descriptions may be found in the datasheet.
This is the acceptable operating range of the device. The various ranges specified
are as follows:
Commercial: 0 to +70 degrees Celsius
Military : -55 to +125 degrees Celsius
Industrial: Temperature ranges may vary by model. Please consult the datasheet for
Automotive: -40 to +125 degrees Celsius
