Richardson RFPD, a leading electronics distributor, has entered into a global franchise distribution agreement with u-blox. u-blox is a global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication solutions for the automotive, industrial, and consumer markets. Headquartered in Thalwil, Switzerland, u-blox has offices in Europe, Asia and the U.S.
Richardson RFPD will promote the entire u-blox suite of security, positioning and IoT communication services, based on a broad selection of short-range wireless (WiFi, Bluetooth and V2X communications), market-leading positioning (GPS/GNSS) chips and modules, and industrial grade cellular chips and modules (2G, 3G, LTE).
Richardson RFPD has committed to the IoT market, transitioning quickly from a specialized component distributor with deep technical expertise to a global provider of IoT solutions and services. u-blox’s recent acquisition of Thingstream will enable seamless connectivity services for its customers on top of chips and modules and will make Richardson RFPD a good partner to promote these products.
