Heptagon Announces Acquisition of RF Digital Corporation
Heptagon (www.hptg.com ), an industry leader in sensing, illumination and 3D imaging solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Devices, today announced it has acquired RF Digital Corporation, an expert designer and manufacturer of high performance, high quality wireless RF modules, including the RFduino and recently released Simblee, component-sized wireless module. This move further strengthens Heptagon’s position in the rapidly emerging IoT market and leverages the synergies of both companies by combining easy-to-connect modular solutions from RF Digital with Heptagon’s expertise in sensing, illumination and 3D imaging solutions.
RF Digital’s newest technology and product line - Simblee - incorporates Mobile, Bluetooth® Smart, Mesh, Cloud and other forms of wireless communication. With its unique “Push UI” technology, billions of users can interact with Simblee-connected devices instantly without needing to download additional mobile applications for each IoT product.
“We are very pleased to welcome the RF Digital team to Heptagon,” says Christian Tang-Jespersen, Heptagon’s CEO and President. “RF Digital’s cutting-edge wireless technology and products positions us to deliver an even broader range of innovative industry-leading solutions that address the rapidly evolving needs for the Interface of Things™.”
“Simblee is changing the way connected products are built, and its ease of use is speeding time to market,” said Armen Kazanchian, the Founder and President of RF Digital. “We are passionate about leveraging Heptagon’s global scale to help us realize our vision. While we will continue to operate somewhat independently, joining forces will enable us to support all leading smartphone vendors and OEMs across many industries, expand and invest in our developer community, and enhance our products and solutions.”
Simblee is an ideal product to combine with Heptagon’s sensors for a flexible mix-and-match building-block solution. This removes a significant amount of work from the development of mobile-connected IoT devices, making the technology much more accessible to a broader range of developers. In just a few hours, functional IoT applications can be created using the Simblee development environment. But Simblee does more than just accelerate the device-mobile-cloud development path. The device's extremely low connection latency and its timing accuracy enables use in everything from wearable medical devices to gaming to industrial applications.
RF Digital, located in Southern California, was established in 1999, and led by its founder and President Armen Kazanchian for over 16 years. The transaction brings an expert team of hardware and software architects and engineers to Heptagon. Both RF Digital and Heptagon are individually known for their solid histories, visionary technologies, creativity and strong foundational skills. Each company is driven by an unrelenting commitment to excellence, performance, quality, delivery and customer support, making the joining of these two high performance teams notably significant to the IoT industry.
