The SimpleLink™ SDK features POSIX (Portable Operating System Interface), which is a family of standards specified by the IEEE Computer Society for maintaining compatibility between operating systems. Through POSIX-compliant APIs, developers can maintain 100% application code portability between various OS/kernels.
The SimpleLink SDK comes integrated with TI-RTOS. Checkout the trainings below to learn about multi-threaded applications & the features available with TI-RTOS.
This section covers wireless network trends, key technologies, and problem statements for smart grid IoT.
This section covers system-level deep dive on key wireless network protocols of 6LoWPAN, RPL, and CoAP for smart grid IoT.
This section covers system-level examples for wireless networks on smart grid IoT. We will provide software- and system-level details for two system examples: 6LoWPAN-Contiki and sub-1GHz sensor to cloud industrial IoT gateway reference design.
This section summarizes the wireless network challenges and solutions for a smarter grid IoT training series.
This section covers what is meter tampering, why is this a problem for utility providers, and some common ways a meter is tampered.
The first line of defense against tampering by bypassing current, reversing connections, and disconnecting leads is the meter case. Due to this, it is common for utilities to require some form of intrusion detection system to detect when someone opens a case. In this section, we will cover how to detect someone trying to open the case of a meter.
For anti-tampering, it is common to try to detect the presence of a strong magnet. In this section, we will cover the use of hall sensors for low-power detection of strong magnetic fields in three dimensions. Details on our magnetic tamper detection reference design, TIDA-00839, will be provided as well as some of the design considerations that were kept in mind when creating this reference design.
In this section, we will cover how to harden a meter against these magnetic tamper attacks by using shunts for current sensors. For poly-phase implementations, I will go over how to use isolated delta sigma modulators to add the necessary isolation to use shunt current sensors and create magnetically immune poly-phase energy measurement systems. The TIDA-00601 and TIDA-01094 reference designs, which show how to implement a poly-phase isolated shunt measurement system, will be discussed as well as the associated AMC1304 high-side power supplies used in these designs.
In this section, a summary of the entire “Securing Smart Meters from Attack with TI Analog” training module would be covered. This summary would cover the “Detecting case tamper attacks using inductive switches “, “Detecting magnetic tampering using hall-effect sensors “, and “Hardening a meter against magnetic tamper attacks “ sections of the training series. Links will be provided for the reference designs and design tools that were discussed during this training series.
