Nordic Semiconductor ships 500 million 2.4GHz chips

RF specialist Nordic Semiconductor shipped its 500 millionth 2.4GHz ULP (ultra-low power) wireless chip earlier this summer.
The Norwegian fabless semiconductor company specialises in ULP short-range wireless communication in the license-free 2.4GHz and sub-1-GHz Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) bands. Nordic single-handedly pioneered the ULP wireless sector during the 1990s with its proprietary sub-1-GHz and 2.4GHz solutions, and – together with ANT Wireless of Cochrane, Canada – the first ANT+ interoperable connectivity solutions.
“No company has spent more time specializing in ULP wireless than Nordic Semiconductor,” comments Geir Langeland, the company’s Director of Sales & Marketing. “This commitment has resulted in several generations of leading wireless connectivity solutions – each building on the previous technology – that can run for months or even years from power sources as small a watch batteries.
