NXP is a global semiconductor company enabling the Internet of Tomorrow. They develop solutions to provide secure, efficient connections, safer and greener automobiles, and add intelligence to everyday items. As a leader in processing and sensing solutions, they are driving a more innovative and connected world for the future. Freescale was acquired by NXP Semiconductors in December 2015.
Nordic Semiconductor is a fabless semiconductor company specializing in ultra low power (ULP) short-range wireless communication. The company’s range of 2.4GHz transceiver and transmitter devices are employed by some of the world’s leading brands in a wide variety of applications like wireless keyboard and mouse, game Controllers, and intelligent sports equipment. Nordic is a member of the ANT+ Alliance and has successfully collaborated with ANT Wireless of Cochrane, Canada, since 2005. ANT devices– using Nordic 2.4GHz transceivers and the proven ANT protocol – have been used in millions of wireless sensor nodes across the world. ANT is perfectly suited for any kind of low data rate sensor network topologies in Personal Area Networks (PANs) and practical Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Nordic’s products are all manufactured in state of the art semiconductor process technologies through strong, long-term relationships with world-best manufacturing facilities. Nordic is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange. All operations are managed according to the ISO 9001:2000-approved quality Assurance system.

Sierra Wireless designs modems that enable PCs, notebook computers, and vehicles to communicate wirelessly. Its products are used for Internet access, e-mail, database access, vehicle dispatch, and a range of machine-to-machine applications. Its product lines include AirPrime (embedded wireless modules), AirLink (intelligent gateways), and AirVantage (machine-to-machine cloud products). The company sells directly and through resellers, primarily to customers in North America. Manufacturers also embed the company's wireless modules into their computing products.
Laird is a global technology company focused on providing components and solutions that protect electronic devices from electromagnetic interference and heat, and that enable connectivity in mission critical systems through wireless applications and antenna systems.
NXP sees the Internet of Things (IoT) as billions of intelligent connections that will encompass every aspect of our lives and make our world smarter, greener and safer. They believe that the biggest opportunities within the IoT will be in the transformational shift from the computing nexus to highly intelligent nodes - when intelligence massively scales, and the nodes have the power to learn, adapt and communicate. NXP are a market leader in microcontrollers with a broad portfolio of ARM-based MCUs with a low power, high security and small footprint – all ideal for IoT. They are a leader in IoT infrastructure with embedded processors for wired and wireless applications. From the end node to the cloud, NXP provides an unrivaled portfolio for supporting the incredible growth of smart, connected solutions including microcontrollers and microprocessors, security, connectivity, analog and sensors, and RF.
Whilst still in its infancy, the Internet of Things (IoT) is in part evolving by using Bluetooth Smart as an underpinning technology. Bluetooth Smart is rapidly being adopted for short-range wireless connectivity between compact, coin cell-powered accessories using RF sensors and smartphone ‘hubs’ supporting associated software applications. The ARM mbed initiative is a collaborative industry project that plans to nurture the IoT. The initiative delivers tools and fundamental open-source hardware and software building blocks for the rapid development of ARM-based devices. The collaboration between Nordic Semiconductor and ARM has resulted in Nordic’s nRF51822 System-on-Chip (SoC) which combines a Bluetooth v4.1-compliant 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio with an ARM Cortex-M0 CPU core on a single chip optimized for ultra-low power operation. The nRF51822 Series offers developers the ideal platform for designing the wirelessly-connected sensors that will help turn the IoT from a technological concept into reality as the mechanisms to transfer IP data from sensor nodes begin to appear.
Building the Internet of Things requires more than brain power. Tapping into the promise of the IoT requires experienced partners, the right device-to-cloud solutions, and knowledge and tools from innovative thought leaders. The industry’s first platform to combine cloud, hardware, and managed connectivity services to support worldwide IoT deployments. Sierra Wireless provides all the services you need including pre-integrated IoT hardware, managed connectivity services and the AirVantage® Cloud, vastly simplifying the management and administration of your complex deployments. No other platform can get your IoT service to market faster.
