Digital education for Nigerian teens supported in partnership
The partnership between Nordic Semiconductor and the Micro:bit Educational Foundation, a UK not-for-profit organisation, will support 'Teens Can Code', a registered social enterprise based in Lagos, Nigeria.
Nordic Semiconductor joins Responsible Business Alliance
Nordic Semiconductor announced that it has joined the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), the world’s largest industry coalition dedicated to corporate social responsibility (CSR) in global supply chains.
Nordic continues contribution for new private 5G network
Nordic is a key contributor to new ETSI DECT-2020 New Radio (NR) standard that will allow enterprise IoT customers to build their own low cost private mesh networks. The standard is said to offer very high indoor and neighborhood area device coverage, density, and reliability, plus low latency.
Latest wireless solutions for complex IoT applications
Nordic Semiconductor hosted a range of demonstrations highlighting the capabilities of its low power cellular IoT and low power, short range wireless products at CES 2020. At the booth, the Nordic Thingy:91 multisensor cellular IoT prototyping platform, formed the basis of a cellular IoT (LTE-M) asset tracker connected to nRF Connect for Cloud, Nordic's software tool for Cloud connectivity.
Environmental asset tracker combines cellular IoT and Bluetooth
Nordic Semiconductor has announced that Norwegian asset tracking specialist, Meshtech, is employing both a Nordic multi-mode LTE-M/NB-IoT nRF9160 System-in-Package (SiP) and Nordic nRF52811 Bluetooth System-on-Chip (SoC) in the world's first environmental asset tracker to combine cellular IoT and Bluetooth wireless technologies with a five year battery life (road mapped to 10 on the same tracker hardware).
Cellular IoT pre-certified modem speeds time to market
Nordic Semiconductor has announced that cellular IoT products and applications can now be brought to market in days using the publicly-announced third-party modem based on the Nordic multimode LTE-M/NB-IoT nRF9160 System-in-Package (SiP).
NB-IoT future for personal safety alarms
Nordic Semiconductor has announced that Dutch startup, Montr, is employing Nordic's nRF9160 multi-protocol LTE-M/NB-IoT System-in-Package (SiP) in a small lithium battery-powered NB-IoT emergency alarm designed to protect people in vulnerable situations such as lone professionals at risk of physical attack or isolated accident, and seniors living at home.
Smart lock to secure Bluetooth LE and NFC connectivity
Nordic Semiconductor has announced that China-based Shenzhen Lumi United, a member of smartphone and electronics giant Xiaomi's ecosystem of companies, has selected Nordic's nRF52840 Bluetooth 5/Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) advanced multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC) to provide the wireless connectivity for its 'Xiaomi Mijia' smart door lock.
Design partnership for Bluetooth location services ecosystem
A strengthening of the design partnership with Quuppa, an Espoo, Finland-based developer of real time location service (RTLS) solutions, has been announced by Nordic Semiconductor. The increased collaboration builds on Quuppa's development of its Intelligent Locating System to operate on Nordic's nRF52 Series Systems-on-Chip (SoCs), including the latest Bluetooth 5.1 Direction Finding solutions.
Battery-powered all-in-one smart home alarm
It has been announced that Nordic Semiconductor's nRF9160 System-in-Package (SiP) LTE-M/NB-IoT cellular IoT module is being employed to provide LTE-M cellular wireless connectivity in the formerly WiFi and Bluetooth Low Energy-only, battery-powered 'Point' smart home alarm developed by Swedish startup Minut.
Will 2019 be the year of cellular IoT?
It’s a bold claim, but 2019 should see cellular IoT finally become a large-scale commercial reality. This prediction comes even as competitive low power wide area network (LPWAN) technologies, such as those from LoRa and Sigfox, appear to have taken an early lead on the back of publicly-announced commercial successes and cheaper per module prices.

What makes a standard successful?
Standards are great and there are so many to choose from. While this statement appears to ring true, closer inspection reveals very few standards reach ubiquity. Some are successful in one or two markets, for example, the Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) standard has remained dedicated to serving a narrow sector since it was first introduced in 1983.

Wireless tech brings healthcare home
Over the last few decades, life expectancy has increased dramatically. Thanks to a host of factors we are all, at least on average, set to live considerably longer lives than our predecessors. Depending on your gender, genetics, socioeconomic status, and environment, life into the eighties is now not uncommon, but there is a catch.
Beacon wirelessly relays energy usage data
It has been announced by Nordic Semiconductor, that OneMeter, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) startup, has selected Nordic’s nRF51822 Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) System-on-Chip (SoC) to provide the wireless connectivity for its ‘OneMeter Beacon’, a device that provides companies with the ability to monitor and manage their energy usage data in ‘real time’.
Cellular IoT ear tag tracks health of reindeer
Developed by Finnish startup, Anicare, the Anicare Healtag tracker is attached to an animal's earflap and can autonomously measure different vital functions for up to five years. Data is sent via cellular direct to the Cloud for immediate access via a smartphone app so that injured or ill animals in the wild can be automatically identified for rescue and treatment.
