Adesto Collaborated with Local Companies SIAME and I@T to Develop New G3-PLC Based Meter

SANTA CLARA, CA – November 12, 2019 – Adesto Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: IOTS), a leading provider of innovative application-specific semiconductors and embedded systems for the IoT, announced that its Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) and Power Line Communications chips are designed into a new G3-PLC smart meter that is now in pilot production targeting utility providers in Tunisia, Egypt, and other countries. The new meter is available from SIAME (La Société Industrielle d'Appareillage et de Matériels Electriques), Tunisia’s leading energy metering company. It was developed by SIAME in collaboration with Adesto and I@T (Innov-Alliance-Tech), a Tunisian provider of engineering services.

The new smart meter leverages Adesto’s configurable, power-efficient G3-PLC Certified SM2400 Power Line Communications (PLC) modem, as well as Adesto’s Quad SPI flash memory, in a custom module designed by SIAME with software created by I@T. The new meter is based on G3-PLC, a worldwide smart metering standard designed to facilitate highly reliable, long-range communication over the existing powerline grid, essentially making the power grid ‘smart’.

According to a March 2018 report from market intelligence firm Northeast Group, LLC, smart grid infrastructure development is accelerating in the Middle East and the North Africa region, growing at an anticipated CAGR of 27% from 2018 to 2027. Countries in these regions are expected to invest $17.6 billion over the next decade in smart metering, distribution automation, battery storage and other smart grid infrastructure market segments.
