Greenvity Wideband PLC Chips Provide True Energy Savings for Next Generation of Smart Meters
Communications, a pioneer in Internet of Things (IoT) turnkey
solutions for smart meter, smart lighting and home/building automation,
announces the Hybrii-LB GV7013LB, an innovative system-on-chip (SoC)
with Wideband Power Line Communication (WB PLC) technology that provides
high speed, reliable and extended range communication for
next-generation smart meter applications. The Greenvity GV7013LB
specifically addresses slow speed, high latency and high noise
interferences, difficulties that Narrowband PLC (NB PLC) technology
encounters in environments such as China and India.
Many current smart meters are enabled by either NB PLC or Narrowband
wireless (NB RF), which means they are limited by slow speed, long
latency and noise at low frequency bands. Smart meter OEMs predict that
due to the high performance, long range capabilities and
cost-effectiveness of wide band PLC, WB PLC will replace most NB PLC and
NB RF solutions in the next generation of smart meters.
The highly integrated GV7013LB offers high performance and robust power
line connectivity with raw data rate over the line up to 4 Mbps, which
supports demand response and real-time control to save energy in smart
meter applications. The GV7013LB can be configured to scale the upper
frequency of the spectrum from 7MHz to 15MHz-an innovative and unique
feature that allows Greenvity's chip to adapt to different regulations
and environments in many countries. For instance, using OFDM technology
across the 2 MHz to 12 MHz spectrum complies with requiements set by
regulatory agencies in China and other Asian countries. The Hybrii-LB
offers reliability and increases noise immunity in a system that enables
long distance communications up to 1.5 Km. In addition, the Hybrii-LB
chip integrates the proprietary relay algorithm as an option to extend
range beyond 1.5Km.
"Greenvity is leading the connectivity technology for the next
generation of smart meters with our patented Wideband PLC," said Hung
Nguyen, president and CEO of Greenvity. "Our GV7013LB and its smart
metering software suite enables OEM customers to create and produce
smart meter solutions with true demand response and real-time control
over a large metering network and also helps them get to market more
The GV7013LB chip integrates a microprocessor for low power management
and intelligent networking that can support up to 1,000 meters per
network. It can be deployed inside smart meters, concentrators and data
collectors. The Hybrii-LB chip is designed and tested for industrial
temperature requirements (-40 degrees C to +85 degrees C), making it
suitable for many industrial applications including smart meter
GV7013LB is currently available for high volume order. The Hybrii-LB
chips have been deployed successfully in many smart meters in southern
China and are scheduled to be deployed in India in the second half of
2017. Please contact email@example.com
