Riot Micro to incorporate support for Polte’s location solution in its chips, allowing extremely efficient LTE positioning for mobile and IoT devices
LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CES 2018— Polte Corporation and Riot Micro today announced a technology collaboration to enable ultra-low power LTE Internet of Things (IoT) solutions with highly accurate location positioning for indoor and outdoor applications. The collaboration combines the advantages of Riot Micro’s RM1000 with those of Polte’s recently announced Lite-Touch location architecture.
“Polte’s technology is a perfect complement to our low-power chip-set design philosophy, and will open the doors for many OEMs seeking location positioning capabilities for their IoT and mobile devices”
Riot Micro will support Polte’s location interface in the RM1000, the industry’s lowest power baseband modem chip for the cellular IoT. Riot Micro’s innovative design approach can cut the power consumption of similar modem chips in half, at price points comparable to short-range wireless systems.
With support for Polte’s location interface, on-board modem data can be easily off-loaded to Polte cloud servers. From the cloud, Polte’s location engine will then accurately calculate location positioning of devices which would otherwise be constrained and hindered by processing power, memory, battery life, costs and size.
Leveraging the existing and ubiquitous LTE network, the combined solution will deliver secure and persistent location of any LTE-enabled mobile device inside or outside structures at a fraction of the cost, size or power consumption. This is a key differentiation compared to GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and hybrid location solutions which usually require at least two different technologies for outside and in-building tracking.
“The recent advances in our architecture allowed us to collaborate with an innovative company like Riot Micro to reduce the costs and power consumption of location positioning for connected devices such as wearables, logistics tags, sensors, and more,” said John Dow, CEO of Polte Corp. “Simple to deploy and system agnostic, our solution is designed to be highly efficient and accurate for the Cat-M category of LTE chip-sets that Riot Micro specializes in, enhancing its value to the cellular IoT market.”
“Polte’s technology is a perfect complement to our low-power chip-set design philosophy, and will open the doors for many OEMs seeking location positioning capabilities for their IoT and mobile devices,” said Peter Wong, CEO of Riot Micro. “The collaboration helps us meet our goal to offer affordable and ultra-low power chips that also incorporate the latest advanced features.”
Assembling a team of engineers with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LTE expertise, Riot Micro designed its baseband modem chip by applying proven design techniques from Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Wi-Fi to LTE to drive down system cost and power.
The RM1000 is available now, supplied to OEMs and module manufacturers developing custom solutions. Riot Micro offers a full-range of customer support services, including reference designs, for evaluation and module design.
