Nordic Semiconductor is a Norwegian fabless semiconductor company specializing in wireless communication technology that powers the Internet of Things (IoT). Nordic was established in 1983 and has more than 1000 employees across the globe. Their award-winning Bluetooth Low Energy solutions pioneered ultra-low-power wireless, making them the global market leader. Their technology range was later supplemented by ANT+, Thread and Zigbee, and in 2018 they launched our low-power, compact LTE-M/NB-IoT cellular IoT solutions to extend the penetration of the IoT. The Nordic portfolio was further complemented by Wi-Fi technology in 2021. Nordic is a member of the ANT+ Alliance, Bluetooth SIG, Thread Group, Zigbee Alliance, Wi-Fi Alliance, and GSMA.
Taoglas have partnered up with Nordic to help you in bringing your new IoT products to market on time, the first time. We will help you on your IoT product journey, by providing integration guidelines for our cellular and GNSS antennas with the Nordic nRF9160 cellular IoT System-in-Package. By utilizing our knowledge gained on over 10,000 customer RF and IoT projects, we want to eliminate problems and risks that can arise with the RF complexities when designing small wireless devices.
Optimizing design can help increase RF performance and in turn extend device battery life. Click here to read our application note that will show you how to achieve the best possible cellular and GNSS integration on your device PCB. We have chosen some of our top-performing Cellular and GNSS antennas, paired them with the Nordic nRF9160, and shown the preferred board layout for optimum performance. Real-world test data is included to show the impact of the ground plain size on cellular performance. For more information please contact us.
