ADI Introduces RF Transceivers For Smart-Grid Applications

Norwood, Mass.-based Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a provider of semiconductors for signal processing applications and radio frequency (RF) technology, has introduced two new RF transceivers for smart-grid and home and building automation applications.

‘Wireless technology is becoming more pervasive as a mechanism to control and monitor energy, as well as to control home and business systems,’ says Peter Real, vice president of ADI's RF group. ‘Short-range RF transceivers offering robust radio performance are paramount for these applications. Analog Devices' new transceivers offer a complete radio solution with the performance, integration and low power consumption required to ensure the transfer of critical data.’

ADI's new ADF7022 RF transceiver and ADF7023 RF transceiver are effective for smart-grid and other applications operating on the short-range industrial, science and medical band for remote data measurement.

These applications include industrial monitoring and control, wireless networks and telemetry systems, security systems, medical devices and remote controls.

In addition, the ADF7022 RF transceiver is the industry's first transceiver with an integrated communications processor to support the io-homecontrol protocol, which is a technology that enables homeowners to remotely control home systems, such as roller blinds and shutters, awnings, garage doors, roof windows and heating systems.
