The Atmel SAM4Cx platform includes several system-on-chip (SoC) devices built around a dual-core ARM ® Cortex-M4 architecture with advanced security, metrology, wireless and power-line communications (PLC) options.

"The global smart metering market is poised to explode," said Dr. Howard Scott, Managing Director, Cognyst Advisors. "In order to succeed in this market, suppliers will need innovative solutions that integrate advanced features and at the same time adapt to regional and changing wireless and PLC communications standards across the globe."

"Flexibility to address a new and diverse set of smart grid communications and metrology standards with low-power system-on-chip solutions are crucial requirements for OEMs targeting high-volume deployments," said Kourosh Boutorabi, Sr. Director of Smart Energy Products, Atmel Corporation. "We are excited to leverage Atmel's industry leading technologies to address these OEM requirements as a new and innovative multi-layered platform."

Key features of the solution include best-in-class metrology with class 0.2 accuracy and dynamic range of up to 6000:1 for single and poly-phase applications, low-power PRIME PLC connectivity with integrated line driver, advanced cryptography, ability to integrate application, communication and metrology, up to 2Mbytes of embedded  Flash, 304Kbytes of SRAM with external memory expansion option as well as low-power RTC, LCD, and anti-tamper feature sets which reduce the smart meter BOM by as much as 40 percent.
