Aura Semiconductor Announces Partnership with Mindtree to Deliver Advanced Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) Solutions for IoT Devices

BANGALORE, India — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 26, 2017 — Aura Semiconductor, a provider of high-performance Radio Frequency (RF) transceiver solutions, in partnership with Mindtree has announced a complete Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE) 5 wireless connectivity solution for Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Aura has the world’s smallest IoT radio transceiver IP for BTLE 5 standard, with state-of-the-art performance which is capable of seamless coexistence with other RF technologies. Aura’s RF hard IP occupies less than 0.5 mm2 in area, has an RX peak current of 5 mA and a TX peak current of 5.4 mA from a 1.1V rail in TSMC40nm process node.

Mindtree is in its 18th year of offering a comprehensive portfolio of Bluetooth intellectual property (IP) solutions. The IP portfolio includes certified, customizable, ultra-low power and footprint Silicon IP for Bluetooth® Smart 4.2 and 5, and ultra-compact, complete certified protocol Stack and Profiles Software for Bluetooth Smart and Bluetooth Smart Ready.

“We have designed our RF transceivers to deliver best-in-class performance, while maintaining the lowest power consumption at a third of the area of most of our competitors,” said Srinath Sridharan, CEO of Aura. “Our combined solution has been licensed by a Tier-1 semiconductor vendor on the 40nm process node and we expect many more design-wins in the near future.”

“Customers look for pre-integrated solutions to minimize the risk to their products and our solution addresses this core need,” said Jayanth Krishna, General Manager Short Range Wireless Business, Mindtree. “This solution which combines Mindtree’s optimized Bluetooth IP and Aura’s high performance radio reduces time to market for our customers and provides them a competitive edge.”
