Silicon Labs Delivers Complete Wireless M-Bus Solution for European Market

Silicon Labs introduced the complete Wireless M-Bus platform solution designed to simplify the development of wirelessly connected smart meters for electricity, gas, water and heat resources in the European market. Silicon Labs’ comprehensive smart metering solution includes the Wireless M-Bus software stack and wireless starter kits to speed time to market. The Wireless M-Bus solution is portable across Silicon Labs’ wide array of energy-friendly ARM®-based microcontrollers (MCUs) and sub-GHz wireless ICs, and it supports all modes for smart metering in Europe including the popular 169 MHz N modes. The open Wireless M-Bus protocol provides a proven, easy-to-deploy wireless connectivity solution for smart metering and smart grid applications. Based on the EN13757-4/3 European standards, Wireless M-Bus specifies seamless sub-GHz RF communication between smart utility meters, data concentrators, mobile readout devices and heat cost allocators. Wireless smart meter applications require long life for battery-powered meters such as water, gas and heat meters. To address this need, the Wireless M-Bus protocol requires very little overhead for the small amounts of data used by meters, enabling battery life of up to 15-20 years. Proven over the past several years in numerous field tests and deployments in many countries, Wireless M-Bus has become a widely accepted standard for smart metering in Europe. Silicon Labs’ Wireless M-Bus platform solution covers all region-specific requirements throughout Europe. The software stack complies with the Wireless M-Bus specification (EN13757-4), the Wireless M-Bus Application Layer (EN13757-3) and the Application Layer of the Open Metering System (OMS) Group. The stack supports a wide range of modes at 868 MHz and 169 MHz, from the physical layer to the application layer. Supported modes include T1, T2, S1, S1-M, S2, C1, C2, N1 and N2 (a-g), with ultra-fast preamble detection for the N modes without sacrificing RF performance. The Wireless M-Bus platform solution is optimized for modularity and scalability, high RF performance, ultra-low power and a small memory footprint (as small as 32 KB flash depending on mode and device type). The software stack provides application programming interface (API)-based access for both application and extended data link layers. The stack also includes an optional serial command interface to enable control of the Wireless M-Bus software from an external host processor. Unlike competing solutions, Silicon Labs’ Wireless M-Bus platform uses a hardware AES encryption engine to provide security for metering systems. The Wireless M-Bus solution’s modular architecture features an open hardware abstraction layer (HAL), providing developers with complete flexibility to select the optimal Silicon Labs MCU and sub-GHz RF devices to meet the performance, cost and size requirements of their metering applications. The Wireless M-Bus software is available in binary/object code format for Silicon Labs’ 32-bit EZR32 sub-GHz wireless MCUs, as well as a combination of EZRadioPRO sub-GHz RF transceivers and the entire 32-bit EFM32 Gecko MCU portfolio.
