Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. has won the European Smart Metering Technology of the Year 2012 Award for its latest smart meter reference platform, Newport. Judges sought to honor a company that put forward a product that will drive the industry forward, using innovation to make significant advancements in smart metering technology.
Integrating the latest in metrology, security, and powerline communications (G3-PLC) technology, Maxim’s Newport reference platform gives utilities a versatile way to evaluate smart grid technology, and gives manufacturers an easy-to-use smart-meter design to accelerate time to market. In April 2011, a small team of dedicated engineers was assembled from the broadest segments of Maxim, including the now fully integrated Teridian Semiconductor, which Maxim acquired in 2010.
