Comm together

Geneva, Switzerland and Berlin, Germany: STMicroelectronics and Nanotron Technologies GmbH signed a definitive, nonexclusive agreement under which they will jointly develop complete solutions for the Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) market. These communication, precisionranging, and high-accuracy-positioning solutions will operate on emerging, low-data-rate networks that meet the soon-to-come lowdata- rate, wireless personal-areanetwork (IEEE 802.15.4a) standard. Efforts recently began on getting the standard established.

Nanotron’s role is to provide intellectual property in the design and manufacture of RF systems using the Chirp Spread Spectrum radio hardware and software.
