ADD Semiconductor is first to achieve PRIME certification for powerline communications in smart metering
Equipment from ADD has successfully completed the certification process defined by the PRIME Alliance Certification Task Group, and its products are now certified as entirely compliant with PRIME specifications. The certification process was performed by Labein-TECNALIA, one of the independent certification entities authorized by PRIME Alliance.
The PRIME Alliance is an industrial consortium focused on the development of an open, public and non-proprietary telecom solution that will support smart metering functionalities and progress the implementation of the 'smart grid' globally. The Alliance has put forth specifications for powerline communications that allows for utilities companies to safely pick technologies from different vendors to achieve the best solution for their needs, and PRIME certification guarantees interoperability.
ADD semiconductor is a founding member of the PRIME Alliance, which involves utilities, meter manufacturers, silicon providers, research institutes, system integrators, covering the complete smart grid scenario.
Guillaume d'Eyssautier, CEO at ADD Semiconductor, commented, " With this certification, ADD Semiconductor substantiates the performance of its PRIME solution, which will be further reinforced with imminent real-world deployments.
