We announced some great news last week for all of the MSP430 developers who have an interest in the smart grid! You can now easily purchase the 1-phase MSP430F6736 metrology EVM immediately from the TI eStore and start developing accurate smart metering products quickly!
A little background on this product: we first introduced the MSP430F6736 energy meter integrated circuits (ICs) for 1-phase electricity metering (e-metering) and energy monitoring applications. This family delivers industry-leading accuracy, flexibility, robustness and system cost savings. The kit lets developers easily see how the MSP430F673x family of energy meter ICs combines the lowest power, most advanced metrology and clocking functionalities for high precision and robust electricity measurements design.
You’ll definitely see more MSP430-based Smart Grid solutions on the TI eStore. We always like hearing what our customers think about our products, and many of you wanted an easier way to buy MSP430 microcontrollers for smart grid/metering applications. We will still continue to sell our smart grid evaluation kits via authorized distributors and TI’s sales team, but we recommend checking out the TI eStore the next time you’re interested in evaluating a TI Smart Grid solution.
