Maxim and RadioPulse partner for ZigBee for smart grid
Michael McManus, DIGITIMES, Taipei [Wednesday 7 November 2012]

Maxim Integrated Products has announced a partnership with RadioPulse to provide ZigBee communication for smart grid solutions. Together, 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.
