Ignion to Transform the IoT Design Process with AWS

Ignion | March 09, 2022

Ignion, a Barcelona-based IoT antenna pioneer, announced the debut of the Antenna Intelligence Cloud, which brings the cloud computing and artificial intelligence capabilities of the cloud to the antenna domain. The new Antenna Intelligence Cloud-based solution, based on Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud services and the strength and flexibility of its unique Virtual Antenna technology, can reduce antenna design time from days or weeks to minutes.

Ignion and AWS will continue to collaborate in order to provide technologies that would help accelerate the global development of IoT projects.

Ignion developed the design and simulation platform on AWS to help IoT developers correctly and quickly integrate Virtual Antenna technology into their own products, resulting in a more reliable and predictable antenna integration process in any IoT device and reduced development cost time to market. The Antenna Intelligence Cloud core incorporates machine learning based on years of expertise and hundreds of designs produced. As a result, the simulated performance is highly similar to that obtained with a real-world end product.

The breadth and depth of the AWS cloud offering allows us to provide access to our Virtual Antenna™ portfolio while delivering a full end-to-end RF design solution to significantly accelerate IoT product development and improve product ROI. By creating your IoT antenna solution with the support of Ignion's Antenna Intelligence Cloud, your product design cycle is shortened and optimized with market leading predictability and flexibility,"

Jaap Groot, Chief Executive Officer at Ignion.

Given the rapid and radical changes in how RF systems are developed, the Antenna Intelligence Cloud is perfectly positioned to become the new platform that powers innovation and variety of any IoT end product. The Antenna Intelligence Cloud combines cutting-edge simulation with machine learning to eliminate actual hardware development requirements. There is an existing need for precise and reliable design assistance for the IoT ecosystem, especially because every design is unique, and there are constant new needs owing to 5G, Wi-Fi6E, LoRaWAN, or UWB, and often devices that contain multiple radios.

Ignion is a leader in the antenna industry, designing, manufacturing, and commercializing small off-the-shelf antennas for IoT, mobile connectivity, and short-range wireless devices. Ignion's objective is to use out-of-the-box antenna solutions to advance IoT and empower the ecosystem.


Genomics is the study of the complete set of DNA in a person or other organism. DNA underpins a large proportion of an individual's health and disease status, therefore a genomic medicine approach is increasingly being applied in clinical settings.

Sirius Wireless Partners with S2C on Wi-Fi6/BT RF IP Verification System for Finer Chip Design

prnewswire | August 17, 2023

Sirius Wireless, a provider of RF IP solutions, collaborated with S2C - the expert of FPGA prototyping solutions, to develop its Wi-Fi6/BT RF IP Verification System, aiming to improve work efficiency and reduce time-to-market for their clients. The emergence of Wi-Fi6, a wireless connection technology (WCT), has unleashed unexpected potential, particularly in the IoT and intelligent hardware markets. Compared to Wi-Fi5, Wi-Fi6 enables 40% faster data transmission speeds, increased device connectivity, and improved battery life, making it widely adopted in IoT devices. Due to the specialized RF IP technology behind Wi-Fi6, only a few companies can provide such technology with Sirius being one of them. Leveraging S2C Prodigy S7-9P Logic System, Sirius Wireless designed the Wi-Fi6/BT RF IP Verification System with AD/DA and the RF front-end AFE as separate modules. The company then used Prodigy Prototype Ready IP which are ready-to-use daughter cards and accessories from S2C, to interface with digital MAC. This design approach reduces the complexity of verification design by allowing the modules to be individually debugged. In addition, the system can serve as a demonstration platform prior to tape-out to showcase the various RF performance indicators, including throughput, reception sensitivity, and EVM. S2C FPGA prototyping solutions greatly benefit customers in accelerating their time-to-market by shortening the entire chip verification cycle. S2C customers can conduct end-to-end verification easily by leveraging the abundant I/O connectors on the daughter boards. An example of such benefits is Sirius's development of its IP verification system. With this system, one of Sirius's customers on short-range wireless chip designs spent only two months to complete the pre-silicon hardware performance analysis and performance comparison test. The company thus saves over 30% in its production verification time and its customers' product introduction cycle. "S2C has more than 20 years of experience in the market." said Zhu Songde, VP Sales of Sirius Wireless, "Their prototyping solutions are widely recognized around the world. With S2C's complete prototype tool chain, we can speed up the deployment of prototyping environments and improve verification efficiency." S2C is committed to building an ecosystem with their partners. "We realize that a thriving ecosystem is crucial to market expansion." said Ying Chen, VP of Sales & Marketing at S2C, "We are working with our partners to provide better services for our customers in the chip design industry. Our partnership with Sirius Wireless is a successful story of that." About S2C S2C is a leading global supplier of FPGA prototyping solutions for today's innovative SoC and ASIC designs, now with the second largest share of the global prototyping market. S2C has been successfully delivering rapid SoC prototyping solutions since 2003. With over 600 customers, including 6 of the world's top 15 semiconductor companies, our world-class engineering team and customer-centric sales team are experts at addressing our customer's SoC and ASIC verification needs.

KORE Supports GrandPad Mission to Help Seniors Age in Place with IoT

prnewswire | August 07, 2023

KORE, a global leader in Internet of Things ("IoT") Solutions and pioneering IoT hyperscaler, and provider of IoT Connectivity, Solutions and Analytics, announced today its alliance with GrandPad, a revolutionary service that allows seniors to connect with loved ones and caregivers at the touch of a button. Part of KORE's "IoT for Good" initiative, KORE's services help older adults to "age in place," which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably." A key piece of aging in place is connecting seniors to family and caregivers simply and affordably, which is where KORE's relationship with GrandPad comes into play. Powered by KORE's robust IoT connectivity solutions, GrandPad is an easy-to-use communication device allowing seniors to connect to vital caregivers and family members by making video calls, sending voice messages, and viewing media. GrandPad is specially designed for older adults with little to no computer experience who have resisted conventional modern technology and may have diminishing eyesight, motor skills, hearing, or cognition. Romil Bahl, KORE President and CEO, said KORE is honored to provide its extensive IoT technology to help seniors age with grace and dignity. "As technology pioneers, it's our duty to use advancements in the field to help our aging population," said Bahl. "Technological progress isn't really progress unless it's helping us live fuller, longer lives. KORE's 'IoT for Good' initiative aims to accomplish just that." The keys to GrandPad's success are simplicity, security and reliability, which work together to enable independence, said GrandPad CEO and Co-Founder Scott Lien. "When a senior taps the 'Help' button on their GrandPad, our Member Experience agents are there to answer questions or resolve any issue as quickly as possible," Lien said. "The goal is for our seniors to have the utmost confidence that our product will help when they need it. This allows them to live comfortably and independently." As lifespans continue to increase, the number of adults over 60 requiring long-term care will more than triple over the next three decades, according to The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), making access to solutions like GrandPad more important than ever. About KORE KORE is a pioneer, leader, and trusted advisor delivering mission critical IoT solutions and services. We empower organizations of all sizes to improve operational and business results by simplifying the complexity of IoT. Our deep IoT knowledge and experience, global reach, purpose-built solutions, and deployment agility accelerate and materially impact our customers' business outcomes.
