Brite Semiconductor, a ASIC design solution provider, has announced that two chips with RF & PLC communication for smart meter using Brite’s SoC design solutions and SMIC’s 40nm & 0.13um process has begun mass production.

The chip design combines RF mesh and PLC communications on the same chipset. Multiply transmission interface IPs are integrated to support industrial level wired and wireless connection, such as PLC, IEEE 802.15.4g and WiFi which can bring connection to smart water, electricity and gas meters.
