With the acquisition of Cognovo in July 2012, u-blox integrates industry-leading chip design technology and development tools based on the "Software Define Modem" (SDM) concept. The acquisition extends u-bloxâ€™ chip design capabilities to create differentiated products for strategic markets that require 4G communications combined with global positioning.
Cognovoâ€™s SDM technology quickly translates complex radio modem designs into fully characterized low-power semiconductor chips. The combination of technologies from Cognovo and the recently acquired 4M Wireless results in a new wireless modem platform based on IP owned by u-blox.
