Product Details

The TERIDIAN Semiconductor Corporation (TSC) 71M6531 Demo Board is an energy meter IC demonstration board for evaluating the 71M6531D/F device for residential electronic energy metering applications. It incorporates a 71M6531D/F integrated circuit, peripheral circuitry such as a serial EEPROM, emulator port, and on-board power supply as well as a companion Debug Board that allows a connection to a PC through a RS232 port. The Demo Board allows the evaluation of the 71M6531D/F energy meter controller chip for measurement accuracy and overall system use.

The board is pre-programmed with a Demo Program (file name 6531_demo.hex) in the FLASH memory of the 71M6531D/F IC. This embedded application is developed to exercise all low-level functions to directly manage the peripherals and CPU (clock, timing, power savings, etc.).
