AD-ADE9430PQM-SL (Power Quality Analyzer)


Reference design based on ADE9430.

The energy metering device, the ADE9430, is a High Performance, Polyphase Energy and Class S Power Quality Monitoring IC. The processing is made by the MAX32650 an Ultra-Low-Power Arm Cortex-M4 with FPU-Based Microcontroller (MCU) with 3MB Flash and 1MB SRAM.


  • Unordered List ItemIt is DIN rail mountable.
  • Has a modular hardware design:
    • a metering & compute base board
    • an add-on board for COMMS and HMI
  • Publicly available software for evaluation and prototyping.
  • no-OS open source embedded software stack.
  • Uses the ADI proprietary ADSW-PQ-CLS Power Quality Library to implement the IEC 61000-4-30 Class S power quality standard.

Hardware requirements

  • 1 metering & compute board
  • optional 1 add-on board for COMMS and HMI
  • current transformers (included in the kit)
  • GUI downloaded from git
  • cables included in the kit

The metering and compute board block diagram

  • includes energy metering & processing
  • current input from external current transformers
  • fully isolated design
  • dual external supply (AC & USB-C)
  • RTC
  • USB 2.0 data interface
  • I/O connector for add-on boards

HMI & COMMS Add-on Board

  • Industrial connectivity:T1L (ADIN1110), RS485 (ADM2587E), Ethernet (WIZ82)
  • Long time data logging (SD card)
  • Standalone interface (Display 64 x 4 , 2 x LEDs, 5 x Buttons)
  • IO Prototyping area (I2C, SPI, GPIO, UART, 3V3, GND)
    • External control signals
    • GPS / GNSS (e.g., Accurate Synchrophasor Measurement)


GUI Scopy – Cross-platform Qt application


Analog Devices will provide limited online support for anyone using the reference design with Analog Devices components via the EngineerZone FPGA reference designs forum.

It should be noted, that the older the tools' versions and release branches are, the lower the chances to receive support from ADI engineers.
