MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- Based on its recent analysis of the Internet of Things (IoT) Devices market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Redpine Signals (Redpine) with the 2015 Global Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award. Redpine's unique and comprehensive WyzBee platform for wireless systems has the potential to radically alter next-generation IoT applications and devices. The WyzBee platform is a single-source solution with indigenous technology, chipset, module, device and the cloud platform.
The WyzBee platform comprises hardware boards, an application development environment, a cloud framework and a product synthesis system. It supports multiple wireless protocols such as dual band (DB) Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (BT) enhanced data rate (EDR), Bluetooth low energy (BLE), and ZigBee. It leverages the cutting-edge RS9113 chipset, a combo chip supporting dual band 802.11n Wi-Fi, BT 4.1, and ZigBee Pro with the lowest energy consumption and optimized embedded firmware in the IoT market.
The WyzBee platform offers more than 40 peripherals cards, aiding device creation of various IoT market segments called "THINGS" with several sensors for connectivity, audio, video and locating applications. Furthermore, Redpine provides the complete cloud platform, application development infrastructure and connectivity application program interface (API) for third-party cloud solutions, as well as application development kits for Android and iOS devices.
Among IoT device makers, the biggest challenges in developing a new device are wireless driver integration and meeting the required performance and development time. The WyzBee platform helps expedite device development with its development tool chain, the WyzBee Workbench. This device incorporates tools to synthesize the final product as well as assist in debugging the application and estimating the final power profile of the device.
"In a highly competitive market, WyzBee differentiates itself by catering to the specific needs of a wide range of customers," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Nandini Bhattacharya. "A large number of small and medium device developers with specific and small-scale needs can opt for the WyzBee platform. Its wide-ranging services reduce not only the cost of device development and deployment, but also the time to market for manufacturers in the IoT industry."
Redpine has 57 issued US patents and more than 200 patents in the pipeline. Its differentiated capabilities, such as integration of hardware and software from several vendors, multi-protocol support, real-time data analysis, easy and secure connection to the cloud, and remote device authentication and management, make the platform highly advanced and robust.
The IoT devices developed leveraging Redpine's WyzBee platform and mCube's monolithic single-chip micro-electromechanical (MEMS) platform, along with its MC3610 accelerometer and iGyro™ products, are highly sought after by manufacturers of mobile handsets, tablets and IoT devices.
"Redpine's engineering technologies and solutions that are marked by innovation, high-precision performance, security, ease of use and application diversity have strengthened its brand equity," noted Bhattacharya. "Its chipsets have demonstrated high-performance capabilities over the years and have been incorporated in leading devices such as Ricoh camera, FiLIP smart watch, United Technologies thermostat, Bang & Olufsen remote control, Ascom VoWiFi phone and Barco ClickShare."
Overall, by developing a solution that facilitates a seamless integration into third-party cloud, easy application development, quick device making and low-cost deployment, Redpine has positioned itself to cater to a wide range of industrial applications in the IoT market.
