Teridian Semiconductor Highlights Smart Metering Solutions at Metering Europe 2009

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2009) - This week at Metering Europe 2009 the global issue of energy efficiency will take center stage with industry leaders from around the world. Teridian Semiconductor will be on hand to highlight its fourth generation smart metering solutions from October 6-8 and can be located at booth #502 Hall 8, Fira Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain. Kourosh Boutorabi, vice president and general manager, Teridian Semiconductor Metering Business unit, will present, "Next Generation System-on-Chip Solutions for Smart Metering," on Thursday, October 8 at 11:00 a.m.

Metering Europe 2009 is an annual event with an international audience of more than 3,000 attendees and 150 speakers. Metering Europe 2009 is a high level conference where all aspects of smart metering, smart grids, meter data management, energy savings, and customer management issues are covered. The event, now in its 11th year, is attended by executive level professionals from utilities to government agencies and regulatory bodies.

Teridian Semiconductor's metering chips are in use today by more than 50 metering manufacturers and on more than 100 metering platforms. The company will showcase its unique system-on-chip (SoC) metering devices, which are noted for their high reliability, design efficiency, ease of integration, and cost efficiency.

"We have shipped in excess of 30 million units and have the largest market share of SoC metering devices," said Boutorabi. "The Metering Europe event is an ideal venue for us to share our product roadmap and strategy to address the ever-changing and developing smart meter market with our innovative product line."

Teridian's metering products are known for their unprecedented accuracy. Having achieved "class 0.2" status for measurement, or 0.2 percent, puts Teridian in the "state of the art" category for measurement accuracy. In addition to unprecedented accuracy, Teridian's metering SoCs feature programmable metrology. The only commercially available programmable metrology solution on the market, Teridian's integrated circuits (ICs) feature more than 60 variants of metrology code for greater flexibility and adaptability. The unique qualities of Teridian's SoCs are due in large part to the company's patented Single Converter Technology™, which delivers better than 2000:1 dynamic range, and their unique 32-bit metrology engine to address the changing utility specifications.
