When integrated with an IoT modem such as NB-IoT, Cat M1, LoRa or Sigfox, the Nestwave low power, high accuracy GPS IP offers low-cost geolocation for emerging applications such as asset tracking, smart factories, and smart cities, without the need for an external GNSS chip.
“After several years of development and based on a number of key signal processing breakthroughs, we believe Nestwave is well positioned to provide a best-in-class solution for low power IoT applications where position awareness is key,” says Rabih Chrabieh, CEO at Nestwave.
“The Fusion F1 DSP is gaining traction with customers as a platform for low-cost, power-sensitive IoT communications standards like NB-IoT,” said Gerard Andrews, director of marketing for Tensilica products at Cadence. “The completely software-based GNSS solution from Nestwave will allow our modem customers to add accurate position-based services to their modem platforms with minimal impact to their bill of materials.”
The Cadence Tensilica Fusion F1 DSP is ideal for low-cost IoT applications requiring a single processor core that is proficient at both DSP and control-code workloads. Developed on a highly configurable architecture, the Fusion F1 DSP is specifically designed to excel at “always-on” processing, including wake-on-voice and sensor fusion applications. Additionally, the Fusion F1 DSP instruction-set architecture is very efficient at running narrowband wireless communications standards like BLE, Thread, Zigbee, 802.11ah, NB-IoT, and GNSS.
