IDT Wins EDN China Innovation Award for Smart Grid Energy Metering IC
SAN JOSE, Calif., December 1, 2011 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®; NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that its wide dynamic range energy metering IC was awarded the Leading Product Award at the seventh-annual EDN China Innovation Awards in the Analog/Mixed Signal IC category.
IDT’s single-phase energy metering family (90E21, 90E22, 90E23, 90E24) features the industry’s widest dynamic range of 5000:1, providing active and reactive energy metering for single-phase two-wire and single-phase three-wire anti-tampering smart meters. The wide metering range allows manufacturers to merge the various types of meters currently available, such as 5(20)A, 10(40)A, 15(60)A, 20(80)A and 30(100)A, into one model of 1(100)A, simplifying the design and manufacturing process for meter makers and reducing the storage and management complexity for utilities.
“We are honored that EDN China, one of China’s most prestigious electronic design magazines, has recognized our energy metering devices for their technical superiority,” said Sean Fan, vice president and general manager at IDT. “China is a significant market for IDT and our family of high-performance energy metering ICs offers an unmatched value proposition of wide range and high performance. They have already been designed-in at leading smart meter manufacturers in China and Europe, and are shipping in volume. We will continue to aggressively develop our energy metering family to provide our customers with the world’s best solutions.”
IDT’s energy metering devices have been well-received by the industry and selected by several meter manufacturers, including Ningbo Sanxing Electric Co., Ltd., a leading electricity meter manufacturer in China and by Gude Analog- und Digitalsysteme GmbH, a leading manufacturer of power distribution units through TCP/IP networks. In addition, the IDT 90E2x product family was named Best Application in the Green Power category of EEPW’s Power Supply Products Awards 2010. Visit www.idt.com/go/PowerMeter to learn more.
