LONDON Anglia has singed a franchise agreement with Jennic to distribute its single chip JN5121 2.4 GHz RF microcontroller that is compliant with IEEE802.15.4 and ZigBee standards.
The device is targeted at integrated solutions for economical sensor networks and sees Anglia (Wisbech, England) make its first move into the industrial security medical (ISM) wireless market. It is supplying Jennic's (Sheffield, England) chips, evaluation kits, modules, network stacks and development tools.
“Over the last two years we have developed an exceptionally strong semiconductor portfolio to balance our passives, electromechanical and opto product lines. Jennic adds a further piece to the jigsaw and we’re delighted to move further into the wireless market with a U.K.-based partner that has world-leading technology,” Tim Shaw, said Anglia’s divisional marketing manager.
Dave Baker, EMEA Sales Manager at Jennic, added, “We wanted a distributor that could broaden our market coverage and give us good share-of-mind to support our design-in effort. Anglia has achieved demonstrable success in building a diverse UK customer base, particularly in the industrial sector, and has made the investment in technical support that’s essential to win new designs for our products.”
