Swiss positioning and wireless chip and module company U-Blox has acquired San Diego based Fusion Wireless, a provider of CDMA wireless modules for consumer and M2M applications in North America.
The acquisition gives U-Blox access to technology and modules in the area of CDMA wireless technology in several form factors.
The Fusion Wireless business will be integrated into U-Blox’s existing activities to leverage and further strengthen the mutual commercial activities as well as capitalise on technological synergies.
“The acquisition of Fusion Wireless immediately gives U-Blox new, cutting-edge wireless module products plus access to the huge embedded CDMA market in North America for both consumer and M2M applications,” said Thomas Seiler, U-Blox CEO. “It also expands our wireless module technology roadmap to cover all popular standards used in the Americas based on a layout-consistent form factor.
“This will allow our customers to easily adapt their products to match geographical requirements as well as overcome network coverage limitations.”
