Multi-channel Energy Measurement Chip Provides Flexibility and Scalability for Broad Range of Monitoring Applications
Analog Devices, Inc., (ADI) a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, today introduced a single-chip energy measurement AFE (analog front end) that monitors the energy consumption and power quality of up to six electrical circuits. The ADE7816 energy measurement AFE is designed for data center power distribution units, energy monitoring and management systems, and multi-channel electricity meters. Able to measure one voltage and up to six current channels, the new AFE provides high-accuracy energy usage and power quality data for each circuit. Since it interfaces to standard microcontrollers, the ADE7816 energy measurement AFE is specifically suited for applications that require more processor flexibility and peripheral options than is offered by fixed-configuration SOC (system-on-chip) devices. Additionally, multiple ADE7816 energy measurement AFEs can interface with a single application processor resulting in scalable and cost-effective solutions.
