MANAS, a leading company in smart meter development headquartered in Turkey, began developing a next generation smart water meter. MANAS started with a low-cost competitor MCU product, but soon faced platform constraints and limited RAM scalability. At the very least, the competitor’s product only performed the most basic operations, and MANAS was searching for more.
After extensively researching alternative MCUs, MANAS selected the Silicon Labs EFM32 Gecko due to the fast wake-up and process time and low total power consumption. In addition to a superior technical product, Silicon Labs also provided MANAS extensive support and all the resources necessary to maximize the EFM32’s capabilities. The MANAS software was up and running on EFM32 in no time. The total switch-out time from the legacy MCU to the EFM32 was less than three weeks.
After an extensive search, the EFM32 gecko from Silicon Labs is clearly the best choice for our metering products. the combination of very low energy consumption and feature options is unmatched.Project Leader | Manas
Not only was MANAS able to achieve an environmentally friendly and extremely energy-efficient smart water meter with a lifespan of 15 years and innovative features at a low unit cost, but the company also received premium support from the Silicon Labs team every step of the process to ensure a seamless development to production experience.
