Maxim Integrated partners with RadioPulse to offer ZigBee-based solutions for the smart grid

November 08, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. is to partner with RadioPulse to provide ZigBee communication for smart grid solutions.

Maxim and RadioPulse will market and develop ZigBee software, highly integrated systems on chips (SoCs), and ‘smart’ transceivers to augment Maxim’s current smart grid solutions and Zeus, its recently announced smart-meter SoC.

The partnership is already providing more highly integrated smart grid solutions. The tight synergy between the RadioPulse wireless ZigBee software and Maxim’s smart, secure IC solutions saves time, board space, and implementation costs for customers. The advantages of this partnership are immediately apparent when compared to existing nonintegrated solutions.

“Maxim supports a variety of standards-based communication solutions including Zigbee. By collaborating with RadioPulse on our Zeus platform, we ensure that customers have innovative, highly integrated, and very secure smart grid solutions,” said Kris Ardis, business director for smart grid products at Maxim Integrated.  

RadioPulse ZigBee SoCs are immediately available for use with Maxim’s smart grid products.
