Atmel to buy ultra-low power Wi-Fi sol'ns firm
Adding to Atmel's wireless portfolio, Ozmo claims to bring innovative "WiFi Direct" certified technologies that will accelerate seamless communication and connectivity across wireless personal area networks (WPANs). Designed for consumer electronics products requiring smaller form factors and longer battery life, including gaming peripherals, HD audio speakers, portable audio headsets, digital thermostats, appliances and CE remotes, Ozmo's Wi-Fi products and technology are said to offer developers ultra-low power, cost-effective solutions for connecting fixed and portable peripheral devices with WiFi platforms.
"This acquisition accelerates Atmel's strategy to provide complete solutions for products that will make possible The Internet of Things," said Steve Laub, Atmel's president and CEO. "As a leader in the Wi-Fi Direct segment, Ozmo's solutions are well positioned in this rapidly growing market. We look forward to supporting Ozmo's existing customers, expanding sales of their WiFi Direct products through Atmel's global sales channel and marketing network, and integrating their IP with existing Atmel MCUs to introduce even more compelling products."
