Renesas+analog-devices

Analog Devices, Inc. and Renesas Electronics Corporation announced that a co-developed wireless communications platform received Echonet Lite Profile Certification from the Wi-SUN Alliance. The certification ensures compliance to Wi-SUN International Wireless Communications Standards adopted for use in energy management applications for the home and used by smart meters and home energy management systems appliances.

The Wi-SUN Alliance promotes the adoption of open industry standards and seeks to advance wireless smart utility networks worldwide and related interoperability and compliance certification programs.

The sub-GHz wireless communications platform is composed of ADI’s ADF7023-J RF IC transceiver and Renesas’ RL78/G13 microcontroller (MCU) and communications software. The platform complies with the Wi-SUN for Echonet Lite Profile for PHY layer, MAC layer, network layer (6LoWPAN, IPv6) and security layer (PANA) and is targeted to be a standard reference for certification testing.

Developers using this reference platform for today’s M2M, smart grid and IoT applications receive the benefits of a standards-compliant design, enabling faster time to market.

As promoter members of the Wi-SUN Alliance, ADI and Renesas are committed to furthering the mission of certifying wireless communications interoperability across a broad spectrum of smart grid devices.
