Date Added: Jul 2009
Format: PDF

By integrating Altia's Design and DeepScreen GUI development tools suite, Echelon's Power Line Smart Transceiver and ShortStack API, and the Altera Cyclone III FPGA and Nios II embedded processor, developers have a powerful platform for developing cost-effective, yet robust energy aware solutions. These solutions allow homeowners to monitor appliance energy use via a home area network, appliance manufacturers to provide improved service to customers, and utility companies to lower energy consumption via the Internet.
