Morse Micro, a fabless semiconductor company reinventing Wi-Fi for the Internet of Things (IoT), has partnered with AzureWave Technologies, a worldwide leading provider of wireless connectivity and image processing solutions. Paving the way for broad implementation of Wi-Fi HaLow in the Internet of Things (IoT) environments, the partnership sees AzureWave design and manufacture two Wi-Fi HaLow modules, including a new 13mm x 13mm module, the smallest in the market.
Leveraging FCC-certified reference designs, the two module designs are anchored by Morse Micro’s MM6108 microchip. The MM6108 is the industry’s smallest, fastest and lowest power Wi-Fi HaLow SoC, providing 10x the range of traditional Wi-Fi solutions.
“Wi-Fi HaLow continues to gain momentum in the IoT ecosystem, and our collaboration with AzureWave builds on this energy as we scale and accelerate the deployment of Wi-Fi HaLow solutions worldwide,” said Michael De Nil, co-founder, and chief executive officer at Morse Micro. “By joining forces, Morse Micro and AzureWave are poised to design and deliver best-in-class Wi-Fi HaLow solutions that will enrich existing communication modules in a broad range of IoT and consumer electronics applications.”
“As a leading wireless module maker, AzureWave provides design and manufacturing services that ultimately shorten the customer’s development process and time to market, enabling the end-products to be more compact, value-added, and extremely low power,” said Gary Cheng, president, and chief executive officer at AzureWave Technologies, Inc. “Our partnership with Morse Micro demonstrates the continued global demand for Wi-Fi HaLow solutions, and it provides the opportunity to rapidly scale Wi-Fi HaLow for countless IoT devices.”
Both the 13 x 13 mm module and the 14 x 18.5 mm module are available for purchase directly via AzureWave. In addition, Morse Micro is currently developing evaluation platforms that incorporate these modules for customers.
