The future of electronics is wireless and portable due to an almost insatiable consumer demand for ever greater levels of freedom and flexibility. Nordic Semiconductor is playing a key role in the realization of that future, by providing ultra low power (ULP) wireless chips that can run for a long time from small power sources, like watch batteries. 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 a publicly listed, global Norwegian company listed on the Norwegian Oslo stock exchange (OSX: NOD) and headquarter in Trondheim, Norway. The company was established in 1983 as a spinout from the Technical University of Trondheim and is ISO 9001:2008 certified.
