- Initially the two companies plan to develop cellular IoT solutions with CAT-M and NB-IoT dual mode chipsets
- The solutions will be delivered through Renesas’ sales channels
Semiconductor solutions provider Renesas Electronics Corporation has entered into a partnership with cellular Internet of Things (IoT) chipsets provider, Altair Semiconductor to bring ultra-small and ultra-low-power cellular IoT solutions to the global IoT market.
Through this, cellular IoT device makers will be able to use create highly differentiated IoT products and services that will provide better efficiencies and faster time to market claims Renesas. The integrated solutions will be delivered through Renesas’ sales channels.
Sailesh Chittipeddi, executive vice president and general manager of Renesas’ IoT and infrastructure business unit said, “Our combined technical excellence and differentiated IP will allow us to design the smallest and lowest power multi-protocol cellular chip-to-cloud solution for Industrial IoT applications desired by our customers for their next-generation products.”
Mass market of IoT devices and service providers
Initially, the two companies plan to develop cellular IoT solutions with CAT-M and Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) dual mode chipsets and technologies. They will design development tools and software for better adoption of cellular IoT solutions for industrial and consumer applications claims Renesas.
Oded Melamed, CEO of Altair Semiconductor added, “The integration of Altair’s differentiated cellular IoT technology with Renesas’ industry-leading micro controller units (MCUs) will make this great technology immediately accessible to the mass market of IoT devices and service providers.”
