I'm looking at using multiple ADE7816s with a single MCU. Since the device only has one i2c address it appears I will be forced to use the SPI bus for communications. This means I will have to sacrifice waveform captures via the HSDC interface. I would prefer to use this feature.
Are there any recommended configurations for scaling the system design with multiple ADE7816s that retain the use of the HSDC interface?
What if you use a I2C controlled mux?
Look at this example it could be implemented with an ADG715 or similar deviceh
