Current applications of sustainable technology include energy-efficient devices such as smart meters, buildings and home automation. Reduced power consumption and connectivity are the trends. Smart meters are the next generation of gas and electricity meters and offer a range of intelligent functions. Consumers will be able to better manage their energy use, save money and reduce emissions.
Wireless data transmissions replace conventional connections.
Avnet Abacus and Yageo are well positioned to support smart meter applications with a wide range of miniature chip/patch antennas and RF components (filters, baluns, diplexers).
