SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM) introduces Zeus, an important advance in integration and security protection for the smart grid. Zeus is a complete smart-meter system-on-a-chip (SoC) that offers highly accurate metrology, multiple layers of security, and plenty of processing horsepower for today's advanced communication protocols.
As smart meters become more connected, the need for security is paramount to protect against energy theft and cyber attacks on the grid. Zeus provides meter manufacturers with a platform for development in multiple end markets, supporting a wide range of security and communication requirements. A built-in cryptographic module secures communication; a secure bootloader prevents unauthorized firmware modification; and tamper detection assures providers that any attempts to physically attack the meter will be detected, recorded, and reported.
The Zeus platform includes the MAX71616, MAX71617, MAX71636, and MAX71637. For more information, please click here. For additional details on Zeus, click here. For a hi-res image, please click here.
