Keywords:smart utility meters? metering chip?

Adoption of smart utility meters has thrown open a plethora of opportunities for companies and engineers to come up with metering solutions which could comply with the evolving global norms, have the potential to serve and adapt to future demands and could be part of a mass-appeal solution i.e. low costs solution. However, it has also thrown open a Pandora-box of challenges which lie in the path of achieving a successful metering solution.

Many a time, a designer working on a metering chip might not be even aware of the challenges and the demands of the metering solutions. In such a case, he/she is very prone to faltering in the design, making the product unsuitable for the end-solution due to a minor fault in the design.

This article aims to highlight some of the major issues of metering SoC design and also propose some possible solutions to achieve the intended goals. It also aims to make the SoC designer aware of the challenges beforehand so that he/she could attack them head-on and an effective solution can be rolled out.
