Altair Semiconductor recently announced it has partnered with JIG-SAW Inc, a leading provider of Auto Direction and Auto Sensoring solutions for IoT, with the goal of developing LTE-enabled sensors for a broad range of global industrial IoT applications. Their partnership merges Altair’s dual-mode Cat-M/NB-IoT ALT1250 chipset and JIG-SAW’s software control technology, enabling developers to create new IoT models capable of driving new efficiencies. The potential for market applications includes IoT sensors for warehouse management, equipment monitoring, and logistics.
Hiroto Ozaki, Chief Operating Officer of JIG-SAW, said, “We are pleased to partner with Altair Semiconductor to bring end-to-end, power and cost-optimized LTE-connected solutions to IoT users around the world. The IoT market is expanding rapidly, and enabling control not only via the cloud, but also within the modem chip layer, offers significant value for IoT users by providing high monitoring quality and stabilized, consistent services.”
Ilan Reingold, the VP of Business Development and Marketing for Altair Semiconductor, said, “Because Wi-Fi is not always feasible or efficient for many industrial IoT applications, cellular is a strategic alternative for reliable, secure and low-cost connectivity to the cloud. We are excited to collaborate with JIG-SAW to bring the most secure and effective LTE-enabled solutions to the global industrial sensors market.”
