Redpine Signals – Overview
Headquartered in San Jose, California, Redpine Signals, Inc., is a wireless semiconductor and system solutions company focusing on innovative, ultra-low power and high-performance products for next-generation wireless applications.
Redpine was founded in 2001 and was the first in the industry to launch an ultra-low power single-stream 802.11n chipset in late 2007. Again, in 2009 Redpine pioneered the adoption of self-contained 802.11abgn modules into the then emerging M2M market. In 2013, Redpine introduced the world’s first multiprotocol wireless chipset for the Internet of Things (IoT) market – featuring dual-band Wi-Fi, dual-mode BT 4.1, 802.11p, and 802.15.4/ZigBee. Redpine has created multiple products based on this chipset including n-Link (hosted), Connect-io-n (embedded), WiSeConnect (advanced embedded), WiSeMCU (embedded module with integrated MCU) and WaveCombo (V2X connectivity) modules. Redpine offers technology and products covering multiple market segments in the Connected World/IoT (industrial, medical, automotive, wearables, connected home, smart energy, building automation and real-time locationing), mobile and networking markets.
Redpine technology spans the complete end-to-end wireless solution (802.11 abgn, Dual Mode Bluetooth 4.1, 802.15.4/ZigBee/Thread, 802.11p, MCU, Integrated Security) and includes an extensive patent portfolio on OFDM, MIMO, embedded processor architectures and low-power techniques. The company’s offerings include both the hardware and the software as certified (regulatory and protocol compliance) differentiated sub-systems to provide flexibility and ease of integration to the system integrator. This single-stop approach enables Redpine to deliver an optimal wireless solution to meet customer’s requirements at an optimal price point.
Redpine’s team of industry veterans is focused on “Driving Wireless Convergence” into new markets by delivering the leading edge ultra-low power wireless solutions.
