On the Grid

  • Imagine a city where traffic lights intelligently adjust their timing with traffic load, people make their way around in semi-autonomous vehicles, and lights intensity adjusts with commuter needs as city unwinds into the evening. Learn how TI Innovations...
  • Expanding on TI’s leadership in smart metering technology , we’ve recently released a series of FRAM-based microcontrollers that enhance the operational efficiency of utility flow meters systems for gas, water and heat metering. The MSP430FR69x...
  • Welcome to another blog post in celebration of #OnTheGrid week! This blog post takes a look at the design of solar micro inverters—an emerging segment of the solar power industry and an increasingly reliable and efficient way to get power “on...
  • Establishing a smart grid is critical for the future of our energy supplies. Grid inefficiencies, aging infrastructure, and damaged systems across the globe are causing us to lose energy. TI created a Smart Grid and Energy solutions team to help solve...
  • The goal of the smart grid is to improve the efficiency, reliability and sustainability of the production and distribution of electricity. It’s therefore no surprise that smart grid efforts have extended to renewable energy in recent years to further...
  • Our friends over on TI's Think.Innovate. blog recently asked Markus Staeblein, General Manager of our Smart Grid and Energy solutions team, to discuss why the future depends on a smart electricity grid. Wind and solar are some of the newer components...
  • As we take a broad look at the Internet of Things (IoT) this week, I wanted to take a deeper look at how the IoT will deliver a smarter grid (and visa versa) to enable more information and connectivity throughout the infrastructure and to homes. Through...
  • EVM430-F6779 is a three-phase electricity meter evaluation module based on the MSP430F6779 device. The E-meter can be connected to the main power lines and has inputs for voltage and current, as well as a third connection to setup anti-tampering. It allows...
  • Comprehensive designs include schematics or block diagrams, BOMs, design files and test reports, and are created by experts with deep system and product knowledge. Products offered span TI's portfolio of analog, embedded processor and connectivity...
  • Almost a month ago, we blogged about being a finalist for a major industry award. Well, the results are out and TI's Smart Data Concentrator came out on top! Last night, we received the ACE Award in the "Ultimate Products: Reference Design"...
