Partner @TXInstruments debuts smart grid #SoCs; Smart Data Concentrator Eval Module includes code for ARM Cortex-A8:

PORTLAND, Ore.—Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) unveiled a plethora of systems-on-chip (SoCs), software and reference designs for smarter-grid and -meter applications at DistribuTECH 2013, a smart grid conference and exposition for the utility industry. More 60 new SoCs provide what TI claims is best-in-class accuracy, integrated memory and built-in smarts including anti-tapering prevention. The new family of SoCs (MSP430F677x) have an enhanced analog front end with up to seven 24-bit sigma-delta data converters, meets the regulatory requirements for smart meters worldwide (IEC 62053-22 and ANSI C12.20) plus includes ease-of-use features such as dynamic pricing tables, large buffers for readings, smart communications stacks for all networking protocols (ZigBee, wM-Bus, G3-PLC, RF Mesh), tampering detection and conformance to both the Device Language Message Specification (DLMS)...
