A Spanish utility is now using STMicroelectronics' new STarGRID ST7590 power-line communication (PLC) SoC for its smart meter project. Iberdrola, a utility company in Castellon, Spain, is using the PLC SoC in advanced automatic meter management equipment for its "STAR Project."

The STarGRID family uses the ST7590 SoC to optimize power consumption and system cost. It is scalable, offers OFDM modulation up to 128kb/s, and is compatible with various smart-grid applications and PRIME and other protocol standards, STMicroelectronics said.

The STarGRID platform also includes the ST7570, which implements S-FSK modulation up to 2.4kb/s and uses a full turn-key IEC 61334-5-1-compliant protocol stack along with new advanced communication features.
