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-blox’ chip design capabilities to create differentiated products for strategic markets that require 4G communications combined with global positioning.
Cognovo’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.
