Morse Micro samples its Wi-Fi HaLow chips to product developers


Australian semiconductor start-up Morse Micro says it is sampling its Wi-Fi HaLow chips to product developers to evaluate and test the solution. By making the HaLow chips available, Morse Micro also adds it expects to see Wi-Fi reach billions of devices.

Morse Micro announces its Wi-Fi HaLow chip samples will be available to partners and customers at the end of July.

Product developers can now evaluate the chip samples, a solution that provides 10x the range, 100x the area, and 1000x volume of traditional Wi-Fi, Morse Micro says.

The announcement also coincides with Morse Micro’s Series A funding of $42 million from investors, which includes Blackbird Ventures and Main Sequence Ventures.

The Wi-Fi HaLow solutions expand traditional Wi-Fi connectivity into emerging IoT ecosystems. It offers power, longer range, and secure connections at higher capacities that let a whole new range of smart devices to connect wirelessly.

The availability of Morse Micro’s system-on-chip (SoC) and module samples will further accelerate the potential of Wi-Fi HaLow across commercial, residential, and industrial IOT markets through applications such as access control, security cameras, industrial automation, and mobile devices.

Morse Micro’s Wi-Fi HaLow portfolio includes a power chip which supports up to eight MHz bandwidth. Wi-Fi HaLow signals penetrate obstacles and can extend beyond 1 km, connecting far-flung IoT devices.

A single Wi-Fi HaLow access point (AP) can connect over 8,000 devices, simplifying network deployment and reducing costs.

“Today’s IoT market has unique connectivity requirements and use cases at scale. Traditional Wi-Fi is not meeting those requirements because it uses higher frequency and wider channels,” says Morse Micro co-founder and CEO Michael de Nil.

“This ultimately means shorter reach, limited penetration through obstacles, and higher power consumption. The characteristics of our Wi-Fi HaLow solution will redefine Wi-Fi connectivity for the Internet of Things.”

De Nil says that by making this technology available for adopters, the company expects to see Wi-Fi reach billions of devices.

“As a co-chair of the Wi-Fi HaLow Task group, Morse Micro is actively promoting Wi-Fi Alliance certification and progressing in the HaLow certification program to help our partners and customers accelerate the market shift to Wi-Fi HaLow technology,” concludes de Nil.
