Atmel Acquires IDT’s Smart Metering Portfolio

07 March 2013

Capitalizing on the growth potential in smart energy applications, Atmel Corp. has acquired Integrated Device Technology’s (IDT) smart metering business. The unit’s product portfolio includes IDT’s smart metering IC product lines and technologies, further enhancing Atmel’s smart energy product portfolio.

The acquisition encompasses IDT’s Metrology Analog Front End (AFE) and System-On-Chip (SoC) devices for single- and poly-phase energy meters. The company said the smart metering IC product line offers best-in-class single- and poly-phase measurement accuracy with better than 0.1 percent accuracy over 5000:1 dynamic range and complements the existing family of Atmel smart metering offerings.

Atmel’s smart metering portfolio includes the world's first single-chip power line communications-based solution targeting the rapidly growing PRIME smart metering market.

"Smart energy is a key focus for Atmel and we are delighted that we have been able to expand our smart energy solutions portfolio with this acquisition," said Steve Laub, President and CEO, Atmel Corp. "By offering a broader, more integrated product portfolio, existing IDT and Atmel customers now have access to a more complete and compelling suite of smart energy solutions that will enable a wider range of applications."
