About us
Redpine Signals is an eleven year old fabless semiconductor and wireless system solutions company. It delivers leading edge products for next-generation mobile and M2M wireless applications. Redpine was the first in the industry to launch an ultra low power and low-cost single-stream 802.11n chipset in late 2007. Again, in 2009 Redpine pioneered the adoption of self-contained 802.11n modules into the then emerging M2M market. In 2011, the company created an innovative approach in wireless space; "Simultaneous Dual-Band" operation in Wi-Fi which is going to be a fundamental feature in all future wireless communications in dense environments. The company offers chipsets, modules and systems covering multiple market segments including industrial, consumer electronics, medical, mobile, PC, and smart energy. Its technology portfolio includes multi-stream 802.11n, 802.11ac, LTE Advanced, dual-mode Bluetooth® 4.0 and ZigBee®.
