Nordic Semiconductor is a Norwegian fabless semiconductor company specializing in wireless communication technology that powers the Internet of Things. Nordic was established in 1983 and has more than 1,000 employees across the globe. Nordic’s award-winning Bluetooth® Low Energy solutions pioneered ultra-low power wireless, making them the global market leader. The company’s technology range was later supplemented by ANT+, Thread and Zigbee, and in 2018 they launched their low-power, compact LTE-M/NB-IoT cellular IoT solutions to extend the penetration of the IoT.
The Nordic portfolio was further complemented by Wi-Fi® technology in 2021, which now makes the company one of just a few suppliers offering all three of the world’s most popular wireless IoT technologies; Bluetooth LE, cellular IoT, and Wi-Fi; covering short-, mid-, and long-range wireless connectivity.
They built their market reputation by supplying leading-edge wireless technologies supported by development tools that shield the designer from RF complexity, allowing anyone with a bright idea to build innovations based on the IoT platform. Today, their award-winning, high-performance, yet easy-to-design-in, Bluetooth® LE solutions are used by the world’s leading brands in a variety of products, including wireless PC peripherals, gaming, sports & fitness, mobile phone accessories, consumer electronics, toys, healthcare, and automation.
