IDT Debuts Poly-phase Metering IC with Piecewise Non-linear Compensation Technology for Enhanced Accuracy [Manufacturing Close - Up]

(Manufacturing Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT), an Analog and Digital Company delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, announced the industry's first poly-phase metering IC with piecewise non-linear compensation technology for enhanced accuracy.

According to the company, the new device enriches IDT's power metering portfolio and is positioned to gain additional market share with Chinese and European electric utilities in smart grid applications.

The IDT 90E32AS is an enhanced poly-phase metering IC built upon the platform of IDT's previously announced 90E32 series. In addition to featuring the industry's widest dynamic range (5000:1) and lowest temperature coefficient (6 ppm/ degrees C), the new device includes piecewise non-linear compensation technology, which enables customers to obtain near-perfect metering accuracy with low-cost external sensing components. The new metering IC also includes additional anti-tampering features that allow the device to detect abnormal currents in the absence of the three voltage phases. In this condition, the chip will enter a partial-measurement mode to measure the voltage, current, and mean power if the detected current exceeds a configured threshold. This gives the utility company a more accurate reading under atypical circumstances, and has become a requirement in some regions.

"IDT continues to release industry-first products to meet the demands of the rapidly growing China smart grid," said Sean Fan, vice president and general manager at IDT. "Our latest power metering IC builds upon the foundation of our high-volume portfolio and adds enhancements to meet the evolving requirements of major Chinese utilities, as well as markets beyond China. Going forward, we will continue to identify the critical needs of our customers and be the first to deliver the performance and features they need to build successful products." The IDT 90E32AS can be used for both three-phase four-wire (3P4W) and three-phase three-wire (3P3W) active and reactive energy meters. Moreover, the expanded event detection functions allow designers to further monitor the power quality and improve their overall metering accuracy, while lowered power consumption (almost 50 percent savings) optimizes system overhead and facilitates the design of more compact smart metering modules.

The IDT 90E32AS is currently sampling to qualified customers and is available in a 48-pin TQFP package.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
