Advanced Metering Infrastructure
Support for G3-PLC / PRIME / IEEE P1901.2
The Semtech EnVerv Ecosystem Starter Kit (ESK) is a complete
implementation of an end-to-end Advanced Metering Infrastructure
(AMI) for PLC metering comprised of meters, in-home displays (IHD),
data concentrators (DC), field evaluation kits (EVK), and more, plus
the requisite web-based meter data management (MDM) software.
It should be noted that all modem aspects of these AMI components
are based on EnVerv’s advanced PLC SoC solutions, namely
the EV8000, EV8100 and EV8200 devices. EnVerv provides its
customers and power utilities with a complete solution to a) offer
complete reference designs to customers and b) provide a vehicle
for customers and utility providers to quickly and efficiently deploy
field trials to ascertain the benefits and performance of EnVerv’s
