“As one of China’s leading smart metering manufacturers, Robulink is a pioneer in developing intelligent mesh networking solutions for AMI,” said Diwakar Vishakhadatta, vice president and general manager of embedded systems at Silicon Labs. “Our EZRadioPRO transceivers provide a very good fit for Robulink’s RobuNet portfolio by enabling them to develop highly reliable, scalable and flexible wireless smart metering products optimized for China’s rapidly emerging smart grid and also for export markets.”About EZRadioPRO Transceivers The EZRadioPRO family features the industry’s highest performance, lowest power sub-GHz transceivers, transmitters and receivers designed to maximize range and battery life for power-sensitive wireless systems. Offering frequency coverage from 119 to 1050 MHz, EZRadioPRO transceivers offer industry-leading RF performance enabling extended wireless range and compliance with the industry’s most stringent regulatory standards. EZRadioPRO transceivers offer best-in-class sensitivity (-126 dBm), transmit output power (+20 dBm), link budget (146 dB) and adjacent channel rejection (58 dB). EZRadioPRO transceivers also achieve a 50 nA sleep/standby current with register retention, consuming 75 percent less current in sleep mode than competing products. This exceptional power efficiency results in fewer battery replacements and/or reduced battery size for wireless networking applications. About Robulink Robulink is a leading provider of mesh wireless network solutions and products that can be used for advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), which is an essential part of smart grid deployment and other applications of wireless sensor networks (WSN). By the end of 2012, more than 4 million meter points had been covered by RobuNet™ mesh network products worldwide. For more information about Robulink Technology, please visit www.robulink.com.
