RICHARDSON, TX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enfora announced that it is expanding its collaboration with Texas Instruments, Inc. (TI), and will develop intelligent wireless solutions using TI's NaviLink 5.0 single-chip GPS receiver. These solutions will be targeted at organizations that need to track, manage and control a wide variety of assets. Deployment of these solutions can provide these organizations with cost reductions and improved utilization of their assets, eliminating redundancies and enhancing asset lifecycle management.
Further to this collaboration, Enfora will incorporate a combination of TI's NaviLink 5.0 GPS solution, LoCosto single-chip cellular platform, and "ultra-low-power" microcontroller into Enfora's intelligent devices, including wireless modules and integrated products.
