Single-Chip And Software Provide Measurement Solution For Cold-Water Meters
ams AG

Boasting ultra-low power consumption, the TDC-GP30-F01 ultrasonic flow meter IC provides a complete hardware and firmware measurement solution for cold water meters. Drawing a continuous current of 8.5µA when capturing flow measurements at a rate of 8Hz, the chip can operate for up to 20 years on the energy available from a single AA lithium battery. It includes an ultrasonic flow measurement front end, a low-power 32-bit processor and firmware for converting the sensor’s analog outputs to measurements of cold water flow, volume and temperature. Additionally, the device may be adapted to complement a range of typical spool piece designs. Users only need to characterize their spool pieces. Pricing is $9.50 each/1,000.
