Nordic Semiconductor ASA
What makes Nordic's solutions world-leading, however, is that this is achieved with class-leading levels of wireless performance and sophistication at a price that enables the company's chips to be used in even the most cost-sensitive consumer products. As a result, Nordic's chips are to be routinely found in products such as wireless PC peripherals, gaming controllers, sports and fitness sensors (for example heart-rate belts and foot pods), toys, advanced multi-media controllers, and digital/satellite TV (set-top box) remotes, to mention but a few.
In fact the wireless link in the majority of non-Bluetooth PC wireless keyboards and mice sold around the world today is provided by Nordic Semiconductor wireless chips.
Nordic Semiconductor is at the forefront of this wireless revolution having single-handedly pioneered the ULP wireless sector during the 1990s. Today, due in large part to Nordic's persistent efforts to continually develop, enhance and expand the reach ULP wireless - a version of ULP wireless connectivity called Bluetooth low energy has now been adopted by the open standards group behind Bluetooth wireless technology: the Bluetooth SIG. As such, Bluetooth low energy will shortly appear alongside classic Bluetooth in almost every new cell phone and Bluetooth-enabled device.
Nordic remains passionately committed to ULP wireless technology and continues to be excited and sometimes even amazed by the new possibilities and applications that ULP wireless is creating - possibilities that will one day benefit the lives of billions worldwide.
