Nanoradio - Silicon innovator in Barcelona
As we were passing through the exciting Innovation Zone Area in hall 7 at Mobile World Congress, we bumped into Stockholm company Nanoradio. Since the start a couple of years ago, they have received a lot of attention and gathered an impressive list of awards and nominations. Most recently Red Herring Global Top 100 list and EE Times Top 60 Silicon Companies.
At World Mobile Congress, Nanoradio was also nominated for the GSMA Mobile Innovation award.
We stopped for a quick chat."The most important for us is now is to get business going and our products is now out on the market. Our WiFi chipset is now inside the first 3G UMA Mobile phone, P270 by Samsung, so we feel that we are on a good way." Said Carl-Fredrik Elgh VP Marketing.
Nanoradio basically designs low-power consumption integrated circuits allowing WLAN capabilities to mobile phones and other portable devices.
What current trend is the most important for you right now?
"Apple has successfully made the case for not only great UI but also made the case for WLAN in mobile phones. The incredible increase in downloads and applications has made the case for using WLAN while at home for this. This is of course good news for us."
What does it meant to you that you are based in Stockholm?
"We couldn't really be located anywhere else. Stockholm and Kista is the wireless valley!"
