Power Line Communication solution passes PRIME conformance test

Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe has announced official PRIME compliance of its PRIME SoC-based solution. This combination of PRIME compliant communication SoC MB87S2080 and PRIME communication software stack is aimed at enabling meter makers to reduce development time for PRIME-compliant meters. This certification process was performed by TECNALIA, one of the independent certification entities authorised by PRIME Alliance.


Equipment from Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe (FSEU) has successfully completed the certification process defined by the PRIME Alliance Certification Task Group. The MB87S2080 with the related PRIME software stack is now certified as entirely compliant with PRIME specifications.

PRIME is a new worldwide narrow band Powerline Communication technology based on OFDM that provides up to 128Kbps communications for smart grid applications.

The PRIME Alliance is an industrial consortium focused on the development of an open, public and non-proprietary telecom solution that will support smart metering functionalities and progress the implementation of the 'smart grid' globally. It has put forth specifications for Powerline Communications that allow for utilities companies to safely pick technologies from different vendors to achieve the best solution for their needs, and PRIME certification guarantees interoperability.

FSEU is a member of the PRIME Alliance, which involves utilities, meter manufacturers, silicon providers, research institutes and system integrators, covering the complete smart grid scenario.
