Product Details

The TERIDIAN Semiconductor Corporation (TSC) 71M6511 Demo Board is an energy meter IC demonstration board for evaluating the 71M6511/6511H device for single-phase electronic energy metering applications. It incorporates a 71M6511 or 71M6511H 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 71M6511 energy meter chip for measurement accuracy and overall system use.

The board is pre-programmed with a Demo Program (file name 6511_demo.hex) in the FLASH memory of the 71M6511/6511H IC. This embedded application was developed to exercise all low-level functions to directly manage the peripherals, flash programming, and CPU (clock, timing, power savings, etc.).

The 71M6511/6511H IC on the Demo Board is pre-programmed with default calibration factors.
