Archived, News | October 3rd, 2017

Anaren IoT Group today announced a new strategic partnership with NXP® Semiconductors that will see the integration of Atmosphere, Anaren’s leading IoT Creation Environment, into NXP’s upcoming rapid prototyping IoT development kits. The partnership will combine Anaren’s expertise in making embedded-to-cloud IoT development easy for developers with NXP’s market leading secure connectivity and infrastructure solutions.

“We are very pleased to form a strategic partnership with NXP,” says Jeff Liebl, President of Anaren IoT Group. “Separately, each company has delivered tens of thousands of wireless development kits over the past few years. Together, Anaren IoT Group and NXP will provide a unique, tightly integrated solution to serve the burgeoning mass market community of IoT developers.”

Anaren and NXP are working together to simplify and accelerate the onboarding process for developers looking to quickly build and deploy new, wirelessly connected offerings, across a broad range of consumer, commercial and industrial categories.

“As the mass market IoT developer community expands, we want to make their lives easier with a best-in-class rapid prototyping solution that gives access to the vast NXP portfolio,” said Sid Shaw, Sr. Director, Global Sales & Marketing for NXP. “It’s all about enabling customers to rapidly take their idea from concept to prototype, and Anaren’s Atmosphere IoT software platform is highly innovative in making IoT application development accessible.”

According to Vision Mobile, developers focused on creating Internet of Things solutions are the fastest growing audience, expected to reach nearly 10 million by 2020. Additionally, On World, Inc. forecasts annual chipset shipments associated with the deployment of wireless sensor networks will grow rapidly from less than 1 billion in 2017 to more than 2.5 billion in 2021.

Liebl concludes, “In order to efficiently and profitably address this large and diverse developer community, software and hardware suppliers are relying on more powerful and better-integrated automation tools such as Atmosphere.”
