The EM773 Demonstration kit is intended to demonstrate the features of NXP’s 32-bit ARM-based EM773 energy metering IC and allow users access to the chip’s functionality for evaluation purposes.
EM773 energy metering IC
NXP Semiconductors’ EM773 energy metering IC is a 32-bit ARM-based solution designed specifi cally for non-billing electricity metering applications. In recent years, Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and smart meters have become popular with regulators and utilities as a means to introduce more sophisticated pricing models and tariffs, and incentivize customers to adjust their energy consumption accordingly. The NXP EM773 takes energy metering beyond this traditional billing context, by making it easy for system designers to integrate energy metering functionality into almost any type of device, and take information on electricity consumption more accessible and intuitive for the end user.
It was a little tricky to find information about the kit over at NXP. The above link is for the chip. Here is a link to the kit itself for whoever is interested:
Could you provide a link to more detailed information on the kit's capabilities. I am not sure of intended market, or what capabilities it has that the designer can exploit?
