The Internet of Things is where the Internet and the physical world meet. Objects, vehicles, buildings and people, to name just a few examples, are equipped with radio and able to communicate. We are increasingly growing accustomed to and learning to use wireless technology, because we want to monitor and control everything. And the transformation has just begun.
The future is wireless.
With extensive experience and unique, holistic expertise in wireless communication, we can help you take the lead in your field, regardless of your product area.
We offer holistic knowledge within radio:
- Antenna development
- Radio protocols
- EMC and radio testing
We have a solid, comprehensive expertise covering everything from the initial stage of development, through design and testing, to a product ready for market launch. Unique know-how that is available to you for many kinds of development projects.
When size is important and performance has to be excellent, our antenna team springs into action. Having been involved in developing antennas for brands such as Apple, Nokia and Ericsson, we have extensive knowledge and expertise.
One of the major challenges today is wireless communications for the Internet of Things. Portable, often very small, devices demand micro antennas that still provide superior performance and stability. Together with our Test Center, we can offer a unique holistic process for antennas – from design to verification and measurement.
With more than 20 years’ experience of advanced electronics development and performance optimization, we can offer a complete service for the design of portable low power and wireless communication – both with discrete components and standard IC circuits at board level or completely integrated silicon solutions in the form of ASICs (i.e. non-standard tailor-made IC circuits).
By managing our projects from the initial concept to finished product, we can deliver time-efficient high-performance solutions.
- The design of RF circuits with optimum performance for your product, often including small specially designed built-in antennas
- Compact board solutions with foldable, flexible circuit boards containing complex embedded systems
- ASIC solutions with unique functionality and performance combined with a very low production cost – for high volumes these can give your products unique customer benefits, a market-leading position and increased profits
When your application requires, we develop customized protocols fully optimized to your specific requirements and without unnecessary overhead. This results in optimum performance, robust transmission and a long battery life. When general standards simply don’t offer the best solution, we are happy to help you solve your challenges.
Better range, lower power consumption and higher security are just a few of the many challenges we are accustomed to solving with our protocols. Standard protocols, such as Bluetooth, always have limitations due to the requirements set by a large variety of applications and application areas, which inevitably lead to compromises in the protocol’s architecture and design.
In order to launch a product on the market, a number of different requirements need to be met. These requirements can vary from one country to the next, and to get a product approved can often be a complex and time-consuming process. For us, however, it’s just business as usual.
Our Test Center has the expertise, equipment and procedures required to guide you around any pitfalls – we measure and verify that your products really do fulfill all requirements for all markets!
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
Nowadays, more and more people are connected constantly, wherever they are, and digital platforms increasingly contain smart applications and web services. Though the technology is still only in its infancy, we have already gained a significant head start. And our expertise and experience enable us to help you implement Bluetooth, Bluetooth Smart and Wi-Fi in different applications; for example in the Internet of Things.
Our everyday work is focused on transforming your ideas into reality. With more than 20 years of experience and unique expertise in electronics solutions, we are pushing development forward and beyond the current standard, in line with our motto – small, wireless and energy-efficient. Please feel free to challenge us!

The use of customized ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) makes it possible to achieve unique performance, such as extremely low power consumption and miniaturization. Low production costs and good protection against illegal copying are other in-demand advantages.
In addition to RF ASIC, we are also skilled at designing ASICs for applications where extremely long battery life is required. These are often circuits with demanding analog functions together with micro-controllers on a single circuit – known as “System on Chip”.
Over the years we have gained extensive experience with design solutions that outperform standard components in a given application; often these are also extremely compact designs.

As specialists within the design of electronics for portable products, we have extensive experience of designing electronics platforms with high demands for low power consumption. Often, these are portable systems that need to last for a long time on a single small battery. This applies both to designs with discrete components at board level as well as ASIC designs integrated on silicon.
We also have substantial expertise in low power RF ASICs and are well versed in SoC (System on Chip) technology. We can combine analog and digital blocks with an RF stage in order to create complete systems that require a minimum of external components.
Our proprietary RF technology and customized radio protocols are particularly valuable when customary RF standards consume too much power, are not sufficiently robust, are too costly or just simply lack performance.

How should the product work? What must it be able to do? The first stage in a development project is to meticulously examine what demands will be placed on the product. This often means that we write a structured requirement specification. We then use our expertise and extensive experience to produce an optimized system solution.
There are often many ways to approach a product’s features and performance requirements, but we have a proven record of finding optimal solutions for every product and application. Once systemization is in place, the next step is to implement the project and move from the drawing stage to construction – an electronic craft process that we are very familiar with.

Creating a platform for successful development
Over the years we have designed a number of electronics platforms that make up the backbone of many successful products. By creating a platform for the electronics in a structured manner right from the beginning, more products and generations of products can be developed cost-effectively.
We have considerable experience of integrating key functions for a series of products into our customers’ platforms, often through ASIC solutions, which can provide advantages such as optimum performance and functionality, low power consumption and minimal size. In combination with the lowest possible production price, an ASIC solution can be a critical factor for success.
Through smart design and controllability, we create flexibility and shorten the development cycle for future products. For more than two decades, we have used our expertise within electronics platforms and radio to help our customers create and develop market-leading products. Now we look forward to collaborating with your company and helping you benefit from our services!
