A disruptive wireless transceiver chip to transform the Internet of Things (IoT) by delivering excellent range, ultra-low power, high security, high reliability and cost-effective connectivity.

Project description

Addressing unmet market needs for Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity

A disruptive technology, the Internet of Things (IoT) promises socio-economic and environmental gains, with a range of connectivity applications from smart homes and buildings to industrial plants. Along with the required Wi-Fi range, IoT devices must meet certain standards but present technology falls short of market needs. The SMARTRange 2.4 GHz wireless transceiver addresses this gap, by implementing the only practically available option to increase the range for radio devices: improving the radio’s receiver sensitivity. Drawing on patent-protected radio architecture, the transceiver doubles the Wi-Fi range without external power amplifiers, thus bringing down equipment cost. Other achieved effects include whole-house coverage, reduced power consumption, security and reliability. The next phase of the project will focus on commercialisation and market penetration.
